Myths, Hoaxes & Scams » Common Genealogical Myths » Myth: The LDS Church has everyone's completed genealogy
We often hear "the Mormon church has everything." Most non-genealogists believe this means that the church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) has a completed genealogy for everyone on file. The truth is that the church has the largest collection of genealogical records necessary for people to research their own family history. The collection is available to everyone, including people who are not members of the church. Explore the library catalog to see what is available.
