One important caveat to mention regarding the Mormon databases is that
everyone upon their death is listed as a Mormon. No, you didn't read it
wrong, everyone is listed as being a Mormon after the fact. Hindu,
Muslim, Zoroastrian, Catholic, forget it, in their records you are put
down for all eternity as having died a Mormon. Just a little reminder in
respect to their much vaunted factual accuracy.
