display non-member children in directory

Postby johnstacer » Sun Nov 02, 2014 9:26 pm

Is it possible to get names of non-member children to display in LDS Tools and LDS.org directory?
I have entered them in MLS and they appear on family records.

If non-member children have been blessed, they will have a membership record and can be shown. Their membership record will stick around after they turn 8, even though they aren't members. I currently home teach someone who has an adult child in college with a membership record, but no baptism (I wonder if this person can connect an LDS account and see everything??)

I believe the children have to be under 8 years old to be blessed. If they're coming to church regularly and the parents and bishop agree, this might be something to pursue.

Good advice. One slight adjustment: being blessed is not a requirement for creating a Child of Record membership record. As long as the child is under 8, with proper approval from the parents, a Child of Record membership record can be created.

Handbook 1: 13.6.2 gives the details.
