Church History Research, MormonPlaces Project

The MormonPlaces Project ( has the goal of building a comprehensive database of every ward and branch in the LDS Church from 1830 to 1930 (about 4,000 of them). We need two historical research assistants, who will primarily be studying primary source documents to compile detailed information about these congregations, and to investigate important questions in how the practice and leadership structure of wards and branches have changed over time. History and Family History majors who have completed coursework in research methods are encouraged to apply to Brandon Plewe (Geography) at or Jill Crandell (History) at
