Karen, It is quite obvious to me why they came to your door. You ordered a book about Mormons. They presumed you were interested in becoming a Mormon. I've been going to the mormon Library and family history centers for 20 years . I have never been visited by them. Go to the family history centers and to the Mormon Library in Salt Lake City, they won't accost you. Zoe

About once a week I visit the local FHC to view films and no one has ever approached me about becoming a member of the church or try to influence me in any way. It must have been a local thing that you experienced.

> I am curious if anyone has visited one of the LDS centers and what their experience was. I have a couple close to me and would really like to view films not available online. Unfortunately, I've kept away because of an experience I had a few years ago. I am a Roman Catholic and have no interest in converting but I have always been fascinated by different religious beliefs. A few years ago I had ordered a book about Mormons off Amazon but it was from an individual seller and not Amazon itself. Within a week, people started showing up at my door. I work evenings so I was not at home but found 3 different notes from members of the LDS church. It was not a random canvas as they had my name. I felt rather violated and that is what has kept me from visiting a FHC. If anyone has visited one, have you been pressured?
