* Mormon

Because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was founded in America, there has never really been a mass wave of Mormon immigrants to the United States. The Mormons do have a history, however, of migration within the United States, settling in Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, and Utah. One of the largest concentrations of Mormons is in Utah, where you can also find the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
