Can I search MLS for spanish speakers?

Postby jsmidt » Wed Mar 04, 2015 3:44 pm

Stake clerk here. My stake president needs a list of members who speak spanish. Is there a way to do this in directly in MLS? And if not, is there a way to filter those members who served missions in spanish speaking countries?

Hi – you can create a custom report in MLS that shows what languages people spoke on their missions. See this thread:

Church records don't track what languages people speak, outside of their mission language – for example, there's no way to know a member's native language by looking at their membership information.
