Errata for Documents, Volume 12

This sheet identifies errors found in Documents, Volume 12: March–July 1843. Minor errors, such as in the format of source citations, are not reported. The errors reported here occur in all printings of the volume and have been corrected in the transcripts, annotation, and reference material presented on this site. This sheet will be updated as additional errors are found. Please report additional errors by emailing josephsmithpapers@churchofjesuschrist.org.
Pages 517–643. 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 7. Readers should refer to the Reference section of the Joseph Smith Papers website to find the corrected and updated information.
