Ever wanted to know more about your ancestors? Chances are the Family History Library has something about them. They claim to have information on over 2.5 billion people, most before 1930, from over 110 countries around the world. The library, run by the Mormon church, is free and open to the public. The vast majority of their collection is in microfiche but they have an ongoing project to digitize all of their information and make it available on their website.

Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to make proper contact and obtain permission to photograph inside the library. Inside, one finds several floors of books, many computers, and microfiche readers. These materials are almost entirely lists of where people were buried.
Hardware: Nikon D200, Nikkor 10.5mm lens, Kaidan QuickPan III Speherical
Software: PTGui/Mac, Photoshop CS3, PanoPreviewer
