From the Bataan Death March to the Protestant-Catholic conflict in Ireland to the Prussian rebellion of 1848-49, family links make these otherwise foreign events more personal for me.
That's nice. However, the tendency of the LDS church to tout the genealogy files as a "great service to mankind" when they are, in fact, a tool for collecting names for the baptism for the dead ritual, is quite mendacious and misleading.

I’ve known since day one what the LDS church uses genealogy records for. As I stated earlier, I have no issue with that because I do not believe for a second that baptism of the dead has any meaning at all.
