President Wilford Woodruff's Journals Now Online
A recent news article on the Church News website announced the availability of more than 7,000 pages of the journals of President Wilford Woodruff, the fourth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Journals are available on the Church History Library website. Genealogists should be aware that the Salt Lake City, Utah Family History Library and the Salt Lake City, Utah Church History Library are two different buildings and organizations. They have complementary collections of historical documents and records. I have found valuable genealogical information in both collections.

That said, I decided to take a look at the Journals. Unfortunately, the articles about the online publication did not contain any links to the actual journals. After searching the catalog on the Church History Library website, I found some copies of the journals linked to digital copies on However, I could not find the journals. I finally found another news article with a link.

Here is the page with the list of journals and a link to the catalog page.

I could not find this page using the catalog.
