Re: High Priest ordination for over 40's

Re: Child record duplicates

Yes, I did that yesterday. I just wonder if any other clerk has been successful at converting a "linked" child into a child of record?

Re: Stake Calendar Upload/Inputting

The calendar is designed so that members of ward councils and stake councils create their own events on the appropriate calendars. The stake should never have just one person create all events for all stake organizations. When I was the stake executive secretary, I asked the stake council to create ...

Re: Child record duplicates

The Help Center contains this article: https://www.lds.org/help/support/create-membership-record However, I fear that MLS will simply create duplicate children. The children currently have "linked" records, which I need to convert to membership records, so they will be treated as children ...

Re: Child record duplicates

If a child already has a record then you should record the baptism using Membership > Ordinances from the LCR menu and select Baptism and Confirmation from the drop down.

Re: Baptism and Confirmation Records

I assume you have tried to look up the member by name and birth date on LCR (Move Records In: https://www.lds.org/mls/mbr/records/request/find-member I think your only way forward is to send a message through MLS to membership support, and give them all the information you have.

Re: Automatic Payments

As a member of the stake audit committee, my personal opinion is that if the bishop receives a check without a donation slip, then he, his counselor, or his clerk should contact the member to verify which donation category/categories the member desired. If they do that consistently, eventually the m...
