Out of Unit Child record update

Postby sdarbyj » Sun Jun 05, 2016 3:45 pm

First I am a new clerk. I've searched the topics but am probably not using the right terminology.

A member gave me some updated information for her inactive daughter. She was recently married. and I have her and her husbands new address and marriage date as well as her husbands birthdate.

1. How do I find out where the daughters and husbands records currently are?
I can find them using the out of unit member tool but don't know if I should add them as an out of unit member

3. Is it possible to record their marriage, or should the ward clerk in their new ward do it?
4. Since they are not in my ward how do I get their records forwarded to their new ward?

I have tried emailing the daughters YSA ward clerk, still waiting for a response. I sent him the name and address where she moved?

It should be entered in by the clerk in the ward where she lives currently. Since she's no longer a YSA, you might contact the non-YSA ward in the area where she lives and ask them to pull the records into their ward and record the marriage.

An alternative might be to use the "Special Request" feature in MLS to send the information to CHQ.

I have done this before with great success. Provide the parent's name and membership number, and the information for the Child that should be updated/verified. Membership support in SLC can see them and update their information.

In the case of the OP, he can just attache the Special Request to the mother who appears to be a member of the ward. CHQ should be able to find the daughter's record from there (assuming the daughter is recorded as a child on the mother's record).

Agreed, but I tend to give all the information I have available. If I give them more information than they need, they can just ignore the rest. If I assume I can guess what they need, I may not provide something I have but is vital to assisting them which can cause them unnecessary work.

While I'd rather error on too much over too little, I'd want to be careful that too much doesn't cause confusion.
