Non-member Reference

Postby khay5020 » Tue Mar 14, 2017 7:24 pm

Greetings,
I am told that non-member family members could once be added to church records for reference purposes. The LCR does not seem to have such capabilities. Is there any way to add such are reference?

Thank you,

You can add them to what I call the "genealogy" section of a member's records, but by in large, they won't appear in any display or report.

Once upon a time, you could add non-member records - but no more.

If children are blessed in the church (usually as a baby), but never baptized, they have a record that remains unless it's canceled. They aren't official members because they haven't been baptized, but there is a record. I was trying to find the Handbook reference to this, but didn't.

Thanks. I was close, but missed it. I got distracted by the title of section 6, "Church Discipline and Name Removal" and didn't spend enough time in section 13.
