    Update: International Magazines

    In 1846 Dan Jones, a missionary in Wales, began an LDS Church magazine in Welsh. He published 32 issues of the magazine. In 1851 three more Church magazines began publication separately in Danish, French, and German. By the turn of the century, Swedish and Dutch magazines had been added.
