The Church History Library has merged its Pioneer Database and Missionary Database into a single, combined research tool called the Church History Biographical Database.
This new, expanded website contains information about more than 100,000 pioneers and missionaries from 1830-1940, including their contributions to building the kingdom of God and the records they left behind. It is a single resource, where you can access multiple sets of data with one search.
In the video below, Elder LeGrand R. Curtis Jr. (Church historian and recorder) shares the story of his early Latter-day Saint ancestors to demonstrate the power of the new Church History Biographical Database.
