This is the card catalog with the original cards for the Journal History of the LDS church. It contains the letters I-O.  I have owned it for the last couple years, the LDS church sold them because they did not have enough storage space. The other card catalogs were also sold, however, the contents of the cabinets were disposed of before selling. Mine just happened to still have the cards. Anyway, it is a pretty detailed record of the Mormon church from 1830-1973.

Some of my favorite cards are the ones like Aurelius Miner (shown above last photo). This guy kept getting arrested for polygamy or U.C. (Unlawful Cohabitation which in 1885 equaled polygamy), went on trial, served time, got released and then spoke at the LDS (Tabernacle) church and then the cycle would happen again. There are quite a few instances of upstanding members of the LDS church continually practicing polygamy, being arrested, being dis-fellowshipped and then back in the good graces of the LDS church only to have the cycle of polygamy start again. It must have been a hard habit to break.

There are also numerous cards (who knows how many, I have not gone through the entire cabinet) of excommunication records.  A lot of people were excommunicated for apostasy, which basically meant they were probably asking too many hard questions. Some of the excommunication records are for adultery, un-christian like behavior, a few for U.C. etc.

They also kept records of anytime something horrible happened to someone not of their faith. "Baptist Preacher struck by Lightening" "Scientist falls to death" etc. I would guess that these records were kept as proof of theirs being the one true religion.

Of course there are quite a few perfectly mundane cards. Some have dates of Missions and who was called to serve, new wards and closing of wards, some with just reference numbers and dates. Some of them (mundane and not mundane) are handwritten.

Anyhow, this is a great little piece of LDS history. I would totally keep them and continue going through them but I am going to be traveling and they won't fit on a sailboat. Also, yes there are references to both Romneys and Pratts, although I am not sure of the actual relationship to the Presidential Candidate. And yes, I do have proof of ownership. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks!
