    Description

    Jeff Anderson of the Church History Library shares several stories that illustrate the value of historical documents. The Church History Library preserves records that relate to the history of the Church, gathering records from the corporate body of the Church, as well as documents from individual Latter-day Saints such as journals, letters, ward newsletters, etc. Because digitizing is labor-intensive and formats can be fleeting, microfilm is used to archive many documents. The interview concludes with recommendations about keeping personal records and information about submissions to the library.
