Member requesting previous ward membership trail

Postby kevindurr » Sun May 08, 2016 11:35 am

Seeking help. A member is seeking a history of each ward she has belonged to over the previous 10 years. Anyone know of how I would be able to generate a print out for her?

I'm not aware of any way of doing this. It's possible that CHQ might have this information but I wouldn't count on it. I'm not sure why they would retain more than the last one or possibly two units. But you can try calling Local Unit Support and asking.

I believe the Membership Department will know where the record has been, but that is not an indication that the member has been in the same location as the record. I can think of a reason why a member would be trying to get addresses for the last 10 years. But I don't think membership record information is the best way to do it.

Yes, records can sometimes take detours and scenic routes.

As can I, but I suspect the request is being used to help jog/double-check the memory.

We don't speak much any more about journals and histories and those types of things, do we? [smile]
