Ward Unit Number

Postby elainajh » Fri Sep 12, 2014 7:15 pm

I think the ward unit number should be available on the ward directory. This would help out members with schooling and also when they move somewhere else.

Welcome to the forum! If you are looking for an easy way to transfer your records, many members ask their "old" ward clerk to print them an "individual ordinance summary," or IOS, which you then can hand-carry to your new area and give to your "new" leadership. You could also ask your current clerk to transfer your records just before you move, as well, if you have your new address. With LDS.org maps, finding your new ward is also easy if you have your address.

Was there another reason you need the unit number?

There may be a use for the unit number in connection with church schools that I'm not aware of but you really don't need your old unit number when you move. The clerk of your new ward really just needs your full name and birthdate. The previous ward is not really useful information when requesting records.

However, as kisaa indicated having an IOS isn't a bad idea. In fact, having a current IOS for their records is a good idea for anyone anytime.
