News about Mormons, Mormonism,
and the LDS Church

Internet: Mormon Pacific History, Music and Spoken Word

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Newly listed websites this week include the official sites for the Mormon Pacific Historical Society and for Music and the Spoken Word, the weekly broadcast by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. In addition to these websites, several personal web pages, email lists and a personal history provider are new this week.

The Music and the Spoke Word website is well-designed and easy to use, but for an organization like Bonneville, curiously lacking in information. The site has little historical information on the Choir or its history and no links to where that information can be found. It also makes the major error of automatically playing a choir recording, and not bothering to even give the user controls to turn it off or adjust the volume.

Newly Listed Mormon Websites:

Gary's LDS Page

Gary Hamon's LDS resources include startup screens, LDS cursors and icons, a list of Palm resources and links to many LDS websites.

Mormon Pacific Historical Society

Home page for history group studying the expansion of Mormonism in the Pacific. Includes information about their upcoming conference, selected proceedings from past converences, information on books published about Mormon history in the Pacific, and links to related sites.

Music and the Spoken Word

Bonneville Communications website for the weekly Mormon Tabernacle Choir broadcast. Includes background information about the Choir, where to hear the weekly broadcasts, the text of recent broadcasts, information for broadcasters and links to listen to the choir and to live broadcasts. Unfortunately, other pages about the choir have more background information, and this page automatically starts playing a recording of the choir, but doesn't give the user any way to stop the music. Page also doesn't seem to work in all browsers.

The Ogden Family Web, Link Page

Personal web page for the Ogden family including genealogy, family photos, the elder's quorum newsletter, etc. Includes music that automatically starts playing (and can't be turned off because the music controls are invisible).

Bill &Vivian Rogers: Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar Mission

Personal website with letters from senior missionary couple serving in Mongolia, along with information about Mongolia and the LDS Church.


Ukranian-language e-mail discussion list about the LDS Church.

Suite 101: Mormon (LDS) Literature

Site about Mormon Literature using Includes links to Mormon sites on the Internet, articles about Mormon subjects and discussion boards. While not as heavily promoted as, is nicer, not as heavily coded and its subjects are better organized.

Voices from the Dust

Personal history service provider that helps consumers record and transcribe their personal histories. Includes information about their products and prices, contact information and frequently asked questions. Supports on-line ordering.
