LDS Church involved in new Northwest African American Museum in Seattle

The Mormon Church has donated software and materials to the new Northwest African American Museum in Seattle, Washington.  The new museum includes a genealogical research center.  The center has received volunteer efforts and genealogical records as a gift from the LDS Church.  

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been deeply involved in promoting genealogical research--a.k.a. family history--throughout the world.

The Church has helped launch and operate a similar endeavor in Cincinnati, Ohio: The Freedom Center, a museum dedicated to the National Underground Railroad/African American History.  The Church collaborated with the Museum to set up the genealogical center of the Museum there.
