List of LDS blogs begins to grow

In a recent post, I indicated that I was surprised at the lack of blogs specifically oriented towards family history in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am aware of quite a few bloggers who have blogs about family history and are members of the Church, but few that overtly publish the intent of their blog. My goal is to raise the awareness of the entire genealogical community to the part that the Church plays in that community. My further goal is to raise awareness of the marvelous genealogical tools that have been made available to Church members as well as freely shared with the entire world.

Since posting the original comments, I have added five blogs to my list. The list is available under the tab that now appears at the top of this blog.

Here is the current list:
  • Blogs -- link to the blogs is located at the bottom of the start-up page
  • Revealing Roots and Branches - The generations on either side of me link me to my past and my future. My view of family history involves revealing the roots and the branches. Throughout this blog you will find perspectives related to the doctrines of temple and family history work from revealed revelation given to living prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS - Mormon).
  • Packhams' Pixels - We are missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The term “pixel” has taken on a new, personal meaning for us as we “focus“ on our work of capturing digital images of vital records for Family Search. Here we want to “capture images” of our lives to share with you, our friends and family.
  • The Stephen Sherwood Letters - Letters, notes, and pictures on his life and family. A blog to share the life of Stephen Sherwood, my great great grandfather, and provide tips to help you find your ancestors.
I am still surprised at how short this list is and would like to add to it.


  1. SS Bill Buchanan's blog from Alberta, Canada at

  2. Here's another great one
    This one deals with families mr Black is related to but it is so well researched, at least for the Brimhalls, a big name in LDS FH, that is is really neat to use as a source.
