Demand for LDS-Compliled Data Swamps Ellis Island Site
The 22 million record database compiled by 12,000 LDS volunteers is in such demand that the website was all but unavailable its first day. News reports claim that an estimated 10 million people tried to access the site, located at and by mid-day Wednesday, it was serving a page with a message that read, "Due to unprecedented demand we are limiting the number of users to our site. Please visit us again in a few days." The demand was reminiscent of the launch of the LDS Church's, which was also swamped on its first day, May 24, 1999.

Efforts of 12,000 LDS Volunteers Bear Fruit Today
Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of three guests of honor at the Ellis Island National Monument this morning for the dedication of the Island's American Family Immigration History Center. The ceremony today, which also features US Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton and Ellis Island Foundation Founding Chairman Lee Iacocca, will also mark the official availability of a 22-million record database compiled by 12,000 LDS volunteers.

Internet: New Mormon Internet Sites
Mormon News starts today a new feature: a list of new or significantly changed Internet websites and other resources listed on the major Mormon directories or elsewhere. Hopefully, this will give our readers a better idea of the resources available for Mormons on the Internet and the rate at which it is changing.
