Saturday morning, 25 or 30 people joined Jim and Kent for our walking tour of LDS Church history sites in lower manhattan. To keep the groups manageable, we divided the group into two, and the group I took included a number of non-member Chinese speakers. One of the missionaries with the group provided interpreting.

Beginning this blog about the History of the LDS Church in New York City is all about communication. Run by a committee in the New York New York Stake of the LDS Church, this blog is an attempt to communicate better with those interested in our work and in LDS Church history in New York City.
In addition to regular updates on the status of the research we are conducting and materials we are preparing for publication, this blog will include notices of the events we sponsor (such as the walking tours we hold at least twice a year), reminders of our monthly committee meetings and links to new issues of the newsletters we publish as they are released.
If you want to keep up with the research our committee does, we suggest that you either subscribe to the rss feed for this blog, register on the wiki, or join one of the email lists where we regularly post updates about our projects.
