Update to the Mormon Migration Site

The Mormon Migration database is a project of Brigham Young University professor Fred E. Woods, compiled with the help of many research assistants and colleagues. Mormon Migration is a very useful resource, similar in its scope to the Mormon Pioneer Overland Travel database. Here is a description of the project:
About the Mormon Migration Website
The website has just been updated. The new features I've noticed:
  • A new, clear, beautifully-designed format
  • The ability to submit additional information to be included in the database
  • Images of the passenger lists for each voyage
  • Social media tags
  • A more easily findable list of abbreviations
  • The bibliography is not new, but is also more easily found, and is worth mentioning due to its exhaustive nature
This is an amazing update to what was already an amazing database.
