Pages 501–603. A number of updates and changes have been made to the reference material. The updates correct factual errors, add additional information, and remove biographical information that, while possibly accurate, could not be documented in primary sources or the most reliable secondary sources. Because the reference material supports all published volumes and all documents published on the website, the Smith Papers staff will not keep a record of the specific changes made to each entry published in Documents, Volume 3. Readers should refer to the Reference section of the Joseph Smith Papers website to find the corrected and updated information.
