Finding constancy in naming of "Apostle" position[edit]

I have opened a discussion at List of members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (LDS Church) in order to find some constancy in naming. Before I accidentally impose my personal view, it would nice to have a real consensus of proper naming of "Apostle". Any input would be nice.--- ARTEST4ECHO(Talk)

Merge "Ch.ofthe1stbornoftheFulnessofTimes" with "LeBaron group"?[edit]

It has been suggested that Church of the Firstborn of the Fulness of Times be merged into LeBaron group, as it would appear Joel LeBaron's 1stbornoftheFulnessofTimes is the formal designation and rubric remaining regardless of the acknowledged tensions among its various sub-schisms arisen since Joel's death. All are invited to check out the discussion at Talk:Church of the Firstborn of the Fulness of Times#Merger proposal.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 17:48, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Note: There were no objections (nor ha ha even fellow contributors' input; a page with few interested editors) so I boldly merged to Le Baron group.--Hodgdon's secret garden (talk) 22:48, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Creation of Tithe (Latter Day Saints)[edit]

I'm just leaving this note here to inform this project that I have just created the article Tithe (Latter Day Saints). I'm pretty surprised this wasn't created before, though it was kind of covered in a section in Tithe. If anybody wants to have a look through it that would be great.

Texts desired for transcription?[edit]

Hi, I'm looking into piloting a transcription project on Wikisource for an LDS text, preferably one that isn't on Project Gutenberg yet and was scanned by BYU (BYU's public domain scans are on

Let me know if you have an opinion; otherwise I'll probably start with the Relief Society Magazine next week: Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 18:18, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

I think transcribing Latter-day Saint Biographical Encyclopedia would be helpful. FallingGravity (talk) 15:21, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

AfD discussion[edit]

The link for the discussion -- is here. ---Steve Quinn (talk) 23:09, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

George Q. Cannon[edit]

Is there anyone out there who can modify Cannon's infobox to show his congressional term as well as the Mormon titles he has held?...Pvmoutside (talk) 15:48, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

New subpages[edit]

I have started new project subpages at Wikipedia:WikiProject Latter Day Saint movement/Prospectus and Wikipedia:WikiProject Latter Day Saint movement/Library listening the articles and subarticles in selected reference works related to the Latter Day Saint movement, the relative length of those articles and their subarticles, sources in the public domain mentioned or referenced in those sources, and on the library talk page generated a list of the various sources referenced by the number of times they are referenced. I am myself not entirely familiar with a lot of these works, and acknowledge up front that I may have made mistakes, actually, that I probably did make mistakes, but the lists might be helpful.

Lewis C. Bidamon's place of birth?[edit]

Hello all, On the Lewis C. Bidamon article states: "Bidamon was born in Williamsport, Virginia" but the infobox states: "Born January 16, 1806 / Harmony Township, Pennsylvania." Which is it? TuckerResearch (talk) 18:05, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
