The purpose of this page is two-fold:

  1. to provide factual information about the restoration sects (i.e., religious groups who trace their origins to Joseph Smith, Jr.) including The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (i.e., the Mormons, the LDS Church);
  2. to provide journalists and other authors with advice on the consistent use of words, names, places and other elements in writing about the Church and related restorationist groups.

It is hoped that the information given will be helpful to journalists and others who write about restorationist faiths and their members, doctrines, practices, or beliefs.
