The only way I know of is to contact Local Unit Support. The only thing I can think of that's available to the local unit (assuming the old address was in the ward) is the membership change reports that gets printed out, or an old ward directory.

The "Members Moved In" report shows a member's previous ward, if they moved into your ward within the past 12 months.

My ward has a have 'transplant rate' like a college ward, with members moving in for a year or two and then out. Many Times the less active members move back to home' but they have been out of the ward long enough that no one recalls where that was, and the sending unit did not know previous address. We have a fair conversion rate, so those that move away and become less active do not have family member records in the ward.

@russellhltn how do I review an old ward directory (hard copies are not saved in our unit); is there an archive or point in time date by which I can find that old directories?

There's no archive that I'm aware of. And it wouldn't help in your situation anyway since the prior address appears to be in a different ward. I think Local Unit Support is your only hope. Otherwise, you may be looking at a "Address Unknown" issue.
