Guest Post: Research Survey of Mormons (UK & Irish)

By: Steve Fleming - October 24, 2011

 David M. Morris received his PhD from Southampton University (supervised at Chichester) in History and Sociology of Religion.  His PhD focused on British Mormons in the 19C and the socio-demographic backgrounds of LDS in Staffordshire between 1840 and 1870.  Morris is also the General Editor of the International Journal of Mormon Studies as well as a co-founder of EMSA.  He is currently researching UK/IRISH Mormons in the modern era.

I am currently undertaking a sociological study concerning members of the BRITISH & IRISH LDS Church, OR those who were PREVIOUSLY affiliated or expatriates. The survey has 33 questions in 9 sections. Would you please mind participating. All information gathered is anonymous and can not be used to identify either an individual or an IP address. The survey is found here:

Furthermore, we are pleased to announce the publication of the fourth issue of the International Journal of Mormon Studies. This is a peer reviewed journal and indexed by EBSCO. The current issue and past issues may be found here. Note that in contrast to many academic journals, IJMS articles may be downloaded for free. We do this in order to make this work available to readers around the world.

Please consider submitting your own work for publication.

  2. Yes the volume looks very good.

    What sort of things are you looking for in your current research? (I figured I couldn’t take the survey).

  3. I completed the survey questionnaire.

    My wife and I are about to complete a 30 month Church Service mission (ie, part-time). Q6 doesn’t allow for that.

    Both of my parents left school at the then-legal age of 14, without attending a secondary school, but only the village school. That isn’t provided for.

    Why couldn’t I enter all the priesthood offices I hold? I’m still a deacon, teacher, priest, elder, and bishop, as well as a high priest.
