I'm writing about a fictional character from the Isle of Man who trains in Liverpool and becomes in 1890 a doctor in London. I'd like his religious background to be in a faith where medical intervention is not allowed, and wondered if the Mormon faith in 1870/1880 in the Isle of Man had any strong views on this? I believe current Mormons do use medical intervention, does anyone know how it was in 1870/1880?

Can you explain the process of recruiting individuals by sponsoring the passage to the US?
I have a gggrandfather this sailed from the IOM to Liverpool and then sailed directly to New Orleans. His ship was the Zetland sailing from Jan 1849 arriving in NO in April.
I was curious to see only too names were on your list from that ship. From the ship manifest, there were 333 souls on that ship including the Shimmins. Every single one of them was listed as "Mormon laborers". Four infants died during the three-month-long journey.
Do you know the story behind these kinds of sponsored passages by the LDS? Did they labor abroad to gain passage? Or did the gain passage with the promise to pay back the LDS? I've only come across this information in the last few days while working on our genealogy. Our gggrandfather was alone and only 23 when he left the IOM and emigrated to the US.
We know nothing about him beyond this. His name was John Humphrey.

I am a descendant of Nicholas Boscow. I found the commentary on whether or not he and his family were members of the church very interesting. Thank you for your research, and for creating and maintaining this site.

DNA suggests I have linkage to members of the Mormon church - something for the future!

Thank you Bro. and Sister Bly for directing me to this website. My ancestors were one of the first saints to join the church when taught by John Taylor. My ancestors from the Isle of Man are James Hunter and Catherine Starkey. Thanks for this info and any other info that you find.
