*'''Historical References:''' The term "Mormon" will remain when used in proper names such as the Mormon Battalion or when used as an adjective in such historical expressions as "Mormon Trail."
*'''References to the "Mormon Church":''' To clarify to the general public that “Mormon Church” is referring to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a parenthetical reference will be made. Example, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church).
*'''Previously Named Published Sources:''' Reference References to other websitesbooks, articles, databases, and collections and books that include "LDS" or "Mormon" in the title of the book, collection, organization or company will remain in the Wiki or Wiki article title.

*'''Organizations and Websites:''' Organizations and websites that are not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that continue to use "Mormon" or "LDS" in their title, will remain in the Wiki. For example, ''Mormon History Association'' and ''LDS Genealogy'' website.
