Ordinance tab missing

Postby jschmeltzer » Wed Sep 09, 2015 7:52 pm

i have a (inactive) male member who is the head of household. His ordinance tab shows correctly. There is also a female and child in the household who are also inactive members, there is no marriage information entered, which is why I indicated inactivity. The male shows as single member, the sisters are associated with the household but do not have an ordinance tab, suggesting they are not member when they are.

Anomaly, and would greatly appreciate understanding.

Are you sure they were baptized? They might have only been blessed. A blessing wouldn't show on the records, but would have triggered a "child of record" created for them. And they would have stayed that way until they turned 18 and the procedure outlines in Handbook 1: 13.6.2 is done.

You should at least be able to record a marriage for the male member so he gets off the SA/YSA lists. You need to do this in MLS. Funny thing is I used to home teach a sister married to a non-member (her marriage wasn't recorded on the church records), so the SAs were emailing her. She thought some of the singles activities sounded like fun and considered going to them with her sister.
