  • LDS INFORMATION:
    If anyone has any questions concerning posting to the internet material copied from any LDS films, please phone the following number; 1-800-453-3860, ext. 5018
    Ask for Nikki Miller, she is an attorney in the LDS legal department, and can give you guidance to what can be posted, and what is 'off limits.'

    I have spoken with her, and a good general rule seems to be this: If the records can be found in a National Archive or library, ie. census , ship lists, then it is available to post, but items such as biographies, family histories, and certain parish records may need the permission of the original author or church authority.

    If you are unsure, please phone Ms. Miller.
