Older LDS General Conferences

by Larry Richman on January 11, 2012

Looking for older LDS General Conference talks? Here are 4 sources:

1. Conference.lds.org has conference talks back to 1971 in text, and more recent talks in video, audio, PDF, and EPUB in many languages.

2. BYU has a collection of General Conference talks that lets you search the 24 million words in the 10,000 talks given from 1851 to 2010 in English.

3. The Church History Department has scanned all the General Conference Reports in English since 1880 and placed them online in the Internet Archive, a non-profit Internet library.

4. BYU’s LDS Scripture Citation Index (scriptures.byu.edu) has the text from conferences from 1941 to the present. You can search them or check references in all conferences to a given scripture passage.

Then there is scriptures.byu.edu which has GC’s from 1941 to this day. One can also search them, or check references in all conferences to a scripture passage.

Niklas, I’ve added the BYU reference into the text of the article above. Thanks.

Where are the October 1866 general conference talks?

It doesn’t look like the 1866 is online yet. You could contact the Church History Library to get a copy. See http://churchhistorylibrary.lds.org
