Matt, as a side note, with the Cora Venezuela Stake organization you posted here, and confirmed on LDS classic maps, was that on : Sunday, October 21st, or Tuesday, October 23rd, or Sunday, October 28th? Much thanks if you can clarify my confusion. Thanks for all your great work here.

Sorry, Matt, for misspell. I meant Coro Venezuela Stake.

Hey, Chris! I am not Matt, but I may have found an answer for you. According to the link below, that stake was organized on October 14, 2018. It is an unofficial, non-Church-affiliated site, but until something more official is posted, I hope this information is helpful to you.

James, Thank you, again! On this blogsite, Matt had listed the date as October 23rd, which fell on a Tuesday, which to me was an odd day for any Stake Conference to organize. Usually Stake conference would be a Saturday or Sunday.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, Chris! At around the time you posted that comment, I was knee deep into what turned out to be a 10-day hospital stay. Surprisingly, if you look back at some other stake creation dates, there are at least one or two which were, for whatever reason, created mid-week. I would have to dig more deeply to ascertain why that occurred in those cases, but I imagine in this particular case, since the exact date was uncertain, Matt used a mid-week date as a place-holder until the correct information was made known to him.
