A 20 year effort to investigate the evidence of Joseph Smith, Jr.'s involvement with polygamy and find the truth. The investigation was an attempt to find the truth for one person, the Author. Instead of accepting what others reported, both pro and con, the Author was determined to find the truth for himself by not accepting what other's preconceived and obviously biased results concluded. What the Author discovered was astonishing. The Author encourages his readers to also not take his word, but encourages the reader to validate the allegations for themselves.

Searching for TRUTH is always an endeavor worth the effort. When looking for confirmation of one's religious beliefs it can be inspiring or disappointing. It can be gratifying or vexing. One who is a seeker of truth must be prepared for both emotions. Searching for the truth means accepting it when it is found. This book brings a perspective from someone who is a seeker of truth by means of gathering the information, which is available, reviewing claims of witnesses, historical data, discussions for and against. After weighing the evidence, for oneself, instead of just taking another's word, the truth can be determined and recognized. In the final analysis, one must, and will, decide for themself the path they will follow. I encourage you to seek for the truth for yourself. Don't take someone else's word, don't take my word. Use this book as a guide to help you find the truth for yourself. Use the scriptures and pray for knowledge and wisdom as is written in James 1:5. Remember 1 Thessalonians 5:21-"Prove all things, hold fast that which is good."

The focus of this book is a study on Baptism for the Dead.
Specifically, I want to propose the following questions. Where and why did it start? Who practiced it? How was it conducted? Is it commanded by God for the ultimate salvation of all mankind? How did Baptism for the Dead come to the Utah LDS Church and did Joseph Smith, Jr. play a role?
As I got further into the weeds, one main point became clearly important which was who had control of the Church periodical in the 1840s known as "The Times and Seasons." Here was important information that when compared with other alleged, authentic documents there was discrepancy and conflicts in the documents.
