Mormon studies, autobiography, Jane Manning James
The following transcription of Jane Manning James’s autobiography is provided in light of the essays and reviews found in this issue on the recent film Jane and Emma, so that readers can examine a major primary source on which the filmmakers relied. A transcription of this autobiography was previously published by Qunicy D. Newell. The following transcription and annotation are taken from James Goldberg’s “The Autobiography of Jane Manning James: Seven Decades of Faith and Devotion.” BYU Studies staff verified the transcription, added sections that had been omitted, and modified the annotation to fit our desired format. As in Goldberg’s original transcription, the original spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and paragraphing have been modernized and standardized. Those wishing to see the images of the original document can do so freely through the Church History Library’s online catalogue.
