Have a Unique Domain Name and Public-Accessible Website

by R. Clayton Brough, Vice-President, Brough Family Organization, 2017

All LDS Ancestral Family Organizations (AFOs) should have a unique domain name or Internet address and a public-accessible website. Only having a "members only" or "proprietary" website hinders people from quickly searching and finding family history information on deceased individuals within an AFO database or website. Some LDS AFOs have both a public website and a members only website.
