Some ended up impoverished in a City Almshouse or Poorhouse. I have extracted the names of English immigrants who ended up in the New York City Almshouse between and This includes the name of the ship they sailed on when known But first a bit about the Almshouses In the early ‘s port cities in the USA bore the burden of immigration. By the time they arrived, so many immigrants were tired, hungry and poor they ended up in the City Almshouse. This meant the citizens had to take care of them. At first the citizens of the city asked the Mayors for funds to support the poor. Eventually, beginning in the ‘s, the Federal Government nationalized the programs. Dating back to the colonial era, New York City assumed responsibility for its citizens who were destitute, sick, homeless, or otherwise unable to care for themselves. The city maintained an almshouse, various hospitals, and a workhouse on Blackwell’s Island now called Roosevelt Island for the poor. There are 2 pages for each name in this ledger.

Uncle Dale’s Old Mormon Articles: LDS newspapers

What is a prophet according to LDS belief? Here is a brief description from the article “Prophet” in the Encyclopedia of Mormonism, Vol. The word “prophet” comes from the Greek prophetes, which means “inspired teacher. Since the Lord has chosen some of his servants to be foretellers–to disclose, sometimes in specific terms, momentous events that are to occur–the predictive element often overshadows other implications of the word in the minds of some.

But the gift of prophecy is not restricted to those whose words have been recorded in scripture. By scriptural definition, a prophet is anyone who has a testimony of Jesus Christ and is moved by the Holy Ghost Rev.

Many of the Paiutes in the Cedar City area were originally from the Eagle Valley region along the Muddy River in Nevada, miles west of Cedar City, that had been settled by latter-day saints including Eldon Lytle’s great-grandfather Charles Lytle starting in

March 16, at 5: He had a wonderful time seeing the sites, but said that older Italians were often hard-line Roman Catholics who thought they would go to hell for even talking to a foreign missionary. The younger Italians at least the Romans tended to be uber-progressive Europeans. Can we fix you an espresso? They wanted to talk about movies and music and cars and video games and American politics. Ryan March 17, at 6: I was in Munich, Germany in the early s, and visited a few times to members in Vienna, Austria, and made similar observations to yours about the lack of growth in southern Germany and Austria, retention issues with converts also mostly immigrants and students , and overall, many members obviously apathetic or their spirit already broken to change the status quo.

Anyway, I feel bad for Marco, but it appears to be a growing trend for Europe. Part of that is people moving away work and school but some of it is less activity.

This is a common goal of Latter-day Saints. Strong family relationships require effort, but such effort brings great happiness in this life and throughout eternity. Those who are sealed in the temple have the assurance that their relationship will continue forever if they are true to their covenants. They know that nothing, not even death, can permanently separate them. The covenant of eternal marriage is necessary for exaltation. The Lord revealed through Joseph Smith:

To many Latter-day Saints, Joseph Smith’s sealing to fourteen-year-old Helen Mar Kimball in is one of the most “troublesome” aspects of early LDS Church history.

Phelps to “go east and procure a printing press” to be taken to the future Mormon settlement in the Great Basin. In Boston, with the help of William I. Appleby, the president of the Church’s Eastern States Mission, and Church member Alexander Badlam, Phelps was able to procure a wrought iron Ramage hand-press , type , and other required equipment.

He returned to Winter Quarters on November 12, , with the press. By that time many of the Mormon pioneers had left Winter Quarters and the press was moved across the Missouri River to another temporary Mormon settlement, Kanesville, Iowa. This first issue included the paper’s prospectus , written by the editor Willard Richards , along with news from the United States Congress , and a report on the San Francisco Christmas Eve fire; an event which had occurred six months prior.

He instituted a very strict rule that no blacks were to be ordained or given temple ordinances. Elijah Abel outlived Brigham Young and the validity of his ordination was repeatedly discussed by the brethren see All Abraham’s Children , p. The rationalization for restricting blacks developed over a period of years. Scholar Armand Mauss observed:

From now on whenever Christians throughout the world sing this triumphant hymn it will be celebrating, along with all the other saints throughout the ages, the life and witness of Jerald Dee Tanner, who passed into the Lord’s presence on Sunday, October 1,

From now on whenever Christians throughout the world sing this triumphant hymn it will be celebrating, along with all the other saints throughout the ages, the life and witness of Jerald Dee Tanner, who passed into the Lord’s presence on Sunday, October 1, For those who have not seen Jerald’s obituary it can be found online at: In light of Jerald’s death I thought it would be a good time to pause and reflect on his life and, more particularly, on how God initially led him into the ministry he carried on so effectively, and with such great energy, integrity, and accuracy, for more than forty years.

W hen people can’t gain access to the information they want or need because the place which ought to be providing it is unwilling to do so, other less formal centers for the dissemination of information emerge. If you happened to want to do research into Mormon history in the late s or early s real Mormon history, I mean, not the largely sanitized version promoted in official LDS Church publications sooner or later you would likely find your way to a barbershop at South State Street in Salt Lake City.

You would notice also that the place looked as if nothing had changed since the turn of the century; old-time woodwork and furniture all round with two classic barber chairs, one, as likely as not, filled with old books, and the other attended by the owner and proprietor of the establishment, a barber and the son of a barber, a champion skater, and Groucho Marx look-alike, James D.

Wardle — , to whom a Salt Lake alternative newspaper once applied the honorific sobriquet: A barber by vocation, a philosopher for free-James Wardle’s passionate life lives on in collection of books,” Catalyst July pp. Jerald Tanner, an inactive Mormon teenager, met Wardle in the late s when, at the beginning of his spiritual quest, he attended an RLDS meeting.

From that time on Jerald regularly visited Wardle’s barbershop, not however to get his hair cut—the couple of times Jerald did sit in the chair he went away feeling a little too breezy on top—but rather because James kept in the back of his shop one of the most remarkable Mormon libraries around. In those days that meant not only that you would have to cast a wide net in terms of making connections in order to stock such a library in the first place, but that lots of people would be coming to see you once you had.

It was in James’ shop, for example, that Jerald met such characters as Francis W. Kirkham’s work went through a number of editions and has only recently been largely superseded by Dan Vogel’s Early Mormon Documents 5 vols. If you kept your ear to the ground in the Mormonism of those days as James did, you would find out lots of interesting things, and as such you could become a particularly helpful resource on many occasions where the LDS Church wasn’t talking.

Go ahead, make my day. I was sitting with a friend not too long ago, discussing her current situation with a boy that she liked. She told me about all of these interactions they had had and what was going through her mind as she chose how to react and judge the situation. As such, I asked dozens of single LDS men from various parts of the country what they wish single LDS women understood and these are five of the most compelling and frequently repeated answers: Girls can ask boys on dates This was far and away the most common answer I heard.

Nearly every boy that I asked mentioned this in some form. I think a lot of women have this sense that they will mystically attract the romantic intentions of a boy, without actually striking up any kind of relationship or comfort level with anyone. A date is a date, not a proposal. This is an important thing for both genders to remember in the whole drama of asking someone on a date.

You are not asking for their hand in marriage.

Critics frequently state, or imply that LDS scholars are not real scholars. LDS scholarship is biased.

I was assigned to teach the YW/YM a couple weeks ago for a combined 5th Sunday class, and decided to make it a game. I google searched for ideas, trying to see what other people have done in the past, and there were some really great ideas.

Notes Native American tradition combined with scientific decoding methods indicate that “rock art” is really a sophisticated form of writing. The life-long research into Native American petroglyphs by LaVan Martineau, an orphan adopted into the Paiute tribe of southeastern Nevada and southwestern Utah, has resulted in detailed interpretations of the rock writings.

His work, culminating in an interpretation of the famous Hopi Prophecy Rock, demonstrates a much greater information content in these picture-based drawings than was previously recognized. Martineau’s research implies the existence of early ideograph-based writing systems that could convey detailed meanings without including phonetic sound-based components. Martineau’s Qualifications LaVan Martineau was uniquely prepared to take the first bold steps not only toward showing that the so-called Native American “rock art” was really rock writing, but also actually beginning to decipher their messages.

Let us take a brief look at his unusual background, which did not include university degrees in the subject which he pioneered, nor any related fields. LaVan had been good friends with many of the tribe since his early childhood when their village was located within the city limits. After he became an orphan with no relatives close by, a local Paiute man invited him in a matter-of-fact way, “Come, be my son.

Over the course of a lifetime, LaVan became thoroughly immersed in the culture and language of his adoptive people and eventually developed a sophisticated system for deciphering Native American petroglyphs. The man who adopted him, Edrick Bushhead, was single and handicapped.
