Is there a place to read all journals of Wilfred Woodruff?

Postby chrishild » Thu May 14, 2015 10:17 am

I am not a member of the church but am a descendant of Wilfred Woodruff. I have found some shortened summary versions of some of his journals and have enjoyed reading what I can find. I know the church keeps very good records and was wondering if there is a place I can go to read a more complete version of his journals. Thank you very much for your time.

I did a quick Google and found this promising link: The Kirtland Diary of Wilford Woodruff

"Covering the years from his acceptance of the faith in 1833 until his death in 1898, President Woodruff's diary offers a keenly perceptive view of life in the early Church from the perspective of a leading official."

Here's a digital copy of his Journal.... not sure how reliable this is, the person who owns this link is not a professional historian/biographer/genealogist....

Here is the 9-volume series done professionally. You might find these in a library somewhere..
