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.
