It would probably be helpful to your potential genealogy researchers if you could differentiate between the Mormon (LDS-Utah based) Church and the Community of Christ, formerly known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS-Independence, Missouri based). Only refer individuals whose ancestors were members of the Community of Christ/RLDS to us while referring general genealogical and Mormon membership inquiries to the LDS Family History Library network.}}
