Thousands of converts to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints migrated to Nauvoo in the years 1840 to 1846. They brought skills to Nauvoo which helped establish the city, while other skills such as textile work were not useful on the American frontier. Relatively few British converts were thoroughly involved in the political or religious affairs of the city; that would change as the Saints moved to Utah. Jensen also discusses land and housing issues faced by the transplanted Saints.
