Today in Mormon History posts a few items (daily) of LDS history that occurred on that day.
The entries are drawn from a church history database containing over 100,000 entries. A computer selects candidate posts each morning for anniversary years divisible by 5 (5, 10, 15, 20 ... years ago).
An algorithm selects a few candidate entries from the list. Sometimes, an editor manually selects items from that list. The selected items are then posted to blog, twitter, an email group, and facebook. Links in the right-hand column can be used to sign up daily delivery.
The database is made up from a variety of sources, which were included if they had information that could contribute to a more complete understanding of Mormon history. The material is presented as is, and represent the author's interpretation. Occasionally it may be reformatted or shortened for readability. If you are an author or owner of information posted here and have questions about the use of your material, contact the editor at this address.
The search bar in the right-hand column is a useful tool to search the archives of this site.
