Missing baptism and confirmation records

Postby craigturner » Sat Feb 27, 2016 8:29 pm

a family moved into our ward and baptism and confirmation records were not sent in with one of the children. How do I see if the records exist somewhere?

The best way would be to call Local Unit Support and talk to them. But if you have the child's individual record (they show up in places other than on the parent's record), then chances are it wasn't recorded. It's possible there's a duplicate record, so that's worth checking for. I guess you could try requesting the record and see if there's another copy out there.
