Legacy of Sacrifice: Missionaries to Scandinavia, 1872–94

By Ruth Ellen Maness, Shauna C. Anderson Young and Susan Easton Black

It takes courage to accept a religion that requires sacrifices of the heart. The nineteenth-century Scandinavian converts are a commendable example of this courage. They gave up worldly goods, standing in the community, and sometimes their lives for their newfound beliefs. As a family history resource, this compilation contains vital information, scrupulously researched, about each of these valiant missionaries. Other features include explanations of surnames in Scandinavian countries, a pronunciation guide, and photos.
