"The New York origins of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have received respectable attention. However, historical aspects of the LDS immigration experience through New York, particularly New York City beginning in the early 1840s, have been laregely overlooked. This study provides an overview of the assistance provided by agents of The Church of Jesus Christ to Mormon immigrants who passed through New York on their journey to the west."
