United States Vice President Joe Biden visited Temple Square in Salt Lake City Friday, meeting with leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During the brief visit he met with Elder D. Todd Christofferson and Elder Ronald A. Rasband, both of the Church’s governing Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Joining them was also former U.S. Senator, Gordon H. Smith of the Seventy.

The four visited at the Family History Library where Biden was given a binder detailing his family history.

Biden was in Utah to meet with cancer researchers at the Huntsman Cancer Institute as part of a national initiative he is leading.

Biden’s visit came ten-months after President Barack Obama had a similar meeting with Presidents Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Church’s First Presidency and Elders L. Tom Perry and D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

The Church’s Family History Library is located in downtown Salt Lake City and is the world’s largest genealogical library.
