Internet: Unique Resources on the Web

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Some of the more interesting sites on the Internet are those built by individuals providing some unique resource -- often something that can't find elsewhere. Among the newly listed websites this week are a handful of such sites, including Reginald Dorff's Bible chronology, Latter-day Counsel and the LDS Euro Project.

The latter is by far the most impressive. Meant to compile historical information about the LDS Church in Europe, the site provides unique information that is simply not available elsewhere. Of course, the site is an unfinished project, and needs further effort (and volunteers) to fill out the branches and countries it is missing. Its bare-bones format could also use help, but the content is great!

Latter-day Counsel is also worth mentioning, if for nothing else than its links, which are organized differently than elsewhere. Hopefully counsel on additional topics will join the 40 that are currently available on the site.

Newly Listed Mormon Websites:

Chronology Of L.D.S. Edition-King James Bible
Reginald Dorff's compilation of the approximate date of the events of the Bible. Mimics the approximate year figures found in the Book of Mormon.

D. Scott Scheibe's Home page
Personal website of with Scheibe's interests, including several LDS pages. Those pages include a testimony, doctrinal information about the Church, apologetics pages and links to other LDS sites.

Latter-day Counsel
Website giving topical index to counsel of LDS leaders. Includes compilations of paragraph-long excerpts from General Conference addresses on about 40 topics, along with links to major LDS websites.
Watercolor artwork by LDS folk artist, Kaye M. Wallace. Site includes information about the artist and an online catalog selling art prints, bookmarks, greeting cards, gift tags and seed packets featuring the artist's work.

LDS Euro Project
An excellent site! An attempt to compile historical information about the LDS Church in Europe. Includes detailed information compiled from branch histories and personal accounts of church members in several European countries. Most complete for Denmark, but also contains information on Sweden, England, Ireland, and Wales.
Website primarily for youth, aged 12-20, to meet one another and have fun. Includes chat rooms, a message board and postcards.
