Membership record received- Send back to prior unit?

Postby crookloren » Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:44 pm

I just received a membership record that was obviously sent to the wrong address. Another person with a similar name is living at the address, which is in my ward, and I already have his membership record. They are definitely not the same person, and there is no known connection between the two. Can I send the record back to the previous unit?

Who is the prior unit? If it's not address unknown, I'd call them. Otherwise they are likely to send it right back.

Yes, I called, but the phone number is no longer in service. Phone number from the CDoL. Can I send it back to them without an address to send it to?

Sure. Just give a unit number.

Alrhough I think I'd try sending a short note in place of the address: "received with no address".
