that I heard stories of people dumpster diving to preserve records.

How right!!!

Not only did the Mormon Church spend its money freely to preserve our
heritage, but they made it freely available to us.

Members of the Church actually have a deeper access to records that
the general public does. So befriending one of them can greatly
enhance your genealogical reseach.

I have never understood why some people feel such animosity towards
the LDS Church. The Church's beliefs and practices are entirely
theirs. They do not force anybody to convert while still alive. Of
course they want us to convert. What human organisation does nor
want that? If they hope that my soul will join them after I have
died - let them!! They case me no harm, and they allow me to
benefit enormously!
