Websites on Pioneers and New LDS Dating Service

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Newly listed on one LDS Directory is the Sons of the Utah Pioneers website, which, with the better-known Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, make up the heritage organizations that celebrate the efforts of the pioneers, most of whom were Mormon, to settle Utah. In addition, an LDS Pioneers webring gives access to websites that contain histories of LDS pioneers.

Also new this week is the LDS Social Seek, another LDS dating service website. In addition to allowing users to add information about themselves to a searchable database, and letting users search that database, it also allows some contact before paying a fee, unlike other dating services, it claims.
