To Whom This May Concern:

I just read the associated press article regarding the complaint your organization has against the names of fellow Jews being entered into the archives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am a long time Mormon and would like to tell you that you have no more right to make a blanket statement about your fellow Jews than I have to make any racial or religious generalization. I have conducted genealogical research for several years and would like to tell you that MANY non Latter-Day Saints utilize our files. Correct me if I am wrong, but am I correct that you are in fact a SELF APPOINTED spokesperson for a group that has not entirely elected you? The fact of the matter is that many people use our records and your feeble voice is aired in vain. Please stay out of this business; it is not your own until each perspective family requests particular names to be removed. The grateful voices speak louder than your own.
