The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing to accomplish its program of identifying the ancestry of mankind.
 
 
 
=== Record Reliability  ===
 
 
 
Church records and civil registration were official sources and are some of the most reliable sources of information available on those who were born, married, or died in the District of Columbia.
