Biographical Info:

Administrative History

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was formed in 1830 and soon after sent missionaries to preach their gospel around the world.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was formed in 1830 in New York, and its members later migrated to the American West, specifically the Salt Lake Valley in Utah. After the Saints were established in the west they began to send missionaries to non-English speaking countries in Europe. The first mission in Germany was opened in 1852 in Hamburg and closed a few years later. Missionary work in the area was impeded by the World Wars. In 1937 the German-Austrian mission became part of the new Swiss-Austrian Mission.
