How to Edit Family Name (Directory list)

Postby tubaloth » Mon Apr 25, 2016 8:54 pm

Getting ready to print a Ward Directory.
We have a Husbands record in our ward, but the wife is in a different ward.

But from some reason, the family name is showing the Last name, then a comma, and the wife's first name.

I see this when I print the Directory, but also when I do an export, there is a column called family name. (shows last name, wife name)
I don't see a way for me to edit this in LCR, or in the Directory (where I see it is wrong). I can't seem to update Family name. Maybe I need to do this in MLS?

Any idea?

I assume it's because they are separated. You need to contact CHQ to have them suppress the record. Unless something has been added, there's nothing you can do in MLS or LCR.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

For now, the household name can only be edited in MLS.
