Genealogical Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (known as Mormons)

A extensive source of additional genealogical information is the International Genealogical Index (I.G.I.) compiled by the Genealogical Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormons. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have undertaken this massive task as they believe that they can offer Temple blessings to the deceased which will bind the family together throughout generation after generation. This is an on-going project and is yet incomplete but the work of the Mormons is admirable in gathering vast amounts of data which could prove very helpful for those undertaking searches into genealogy.
