non member civil marriage and member civil marriage

Postby tnhood » Sun Aug 31, 2014 10:31 am

Question one, have a sister that was married to a non member. How do I get her new name to show in directory? As of now her husband is head of household and she still has her old name from past divorce. Also, two have a member married, but his wife still is listed under her previously married name.

You need to update MLS.

Note that there are three fields involved:
  • Full Name - this is to match the member's current full legal name
  • Preferred Name - which is what is printed in most lists
  • Household name - Found in the Household record. This is the name the household will be grouped under.

Recording a Civil Marriage in MLS will lead you by the hand to answer the essential questions.

In the case of a non-member, it's the name as recoded on the member spouses' record. NOT the name as listed in a non-member record in MLS.
