“LDS Books Online: Part 3”

Donald R. Snow

Categories: LDS, IR

Talk Abstract:
In Part 1 of this series we discussed where to find genealogy books online and in particular, books containing information about members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We discussed the book formats, usually pdf (Portable Document Format), and how to deal with it. Part 2 discussed additional Church genealogy books online. This class continues the discussion with information about two major sources of Church member genealogy, The Journal History of the Church and the Early Church Information File (ECIF). These provide articles and references to much information. The Journal History is a series of hundreds of scrapbooks of articles from journals, newspapers, and more, with a card file index, also online. The ECIF is not really a book collection, but a card file and now online with references to notes, articles, letters, people mentioned in journals, etc. The notes for this class and related articles, all with active internet links, are on my website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html .
