Finding divorced members in YSA

Postby kmshafer » Tue Sep 05, 2017 7:07 pm

With changes in who can serve in the temple, the YSA bishop of our ward would like a list of all members in the ward who are divorced. Is there an easy or efficient way to do this in LCR or MLS?

You can do a custom report in MLS. Since I am not at our ward computer I cannot give you the details.

It looks like you can set up a report with:
"Marriage Status" "is" "Divorced".
"Age" "is or is greater than" "18"
"and Age" "is or is less than" "31"

You'll have to click "More" after entering the first "Age" line to get the "and Age" line.

However, like a lot of reports, this is only going to be as good as the data behind it. It's not uncommon to find less active marrieds on the "YSA" list. So it's not a stretch to think you'll have less active divorcees that show as married or even single. Then there's the question if new converts who were already divorced would have an accurate membership record.
