Request a Vault Film before Visiting the Family History Library
How to order films from the Granite Mountain Record Vault
Not all microfilms listed in the FamilySearch Catalog are stored at the Family History Library. Some microfilms are stored in the Granite Mountain Records Vault. Catalog entries for vault films contain the word Vault above their film numbers.
In order to view these films at the library you must order them from the vault. Films listed in the catalog as "Vault" films need to be requested and may take up to three days to retrieve. For larger vault film requests of 15 or more films, please give at least one week notice. Visiting groups requesting 30 or more films need to give at least two weeks’ notice. The films may then be picked up in the Library corresponding to their collection designation. For example, an international film can be located on the B1 International Floor of the Library.
Note that films marked "vault" in the FamilySearch Catalog can be ordered to a Family History Center just like any other film.
