Finding Local LDS Chapels On-line
(Go online to find church)
Deseret News 20May00 N6
By Lynn Arave: Deseret News staff writer

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The Deseret News' Lynn Arave points out that finding the nearest church of your faith when you travel can be difficult, and suggests that travelers use the Internet to find local chapels. Among several sources that she suggests is the web site LDS Traveler - Other suggestions for finding local congregations include searching the on-line telephone directories.

The problem is a real one. A few LDS travelers have posted requests for local chapel addresses and phone numbers on LDS email lists where such requests are permitted, such as on Mormon Index. Others check with their own local leaders before traveling, asking for phone numbers for the Church's directory for leaders.

Unfortunately, Mormon News found LDS Traveler - much less useful than it might seem. The search form on the site is actually a gateway to the Big Yellow directory, giving listings of all chapels, regardless of faith, for a particular area. A search for chapels in New York City, for example,returned the response that there were too many chapels to be listed. And this seemed to be all there is to the site.
