receiving "held" records

Postby colbyj-p40 » Fri Jan 15, 2010 10:47 am

Hello, below is a question I received from one of the bishops in our stake. I am the stake clerk...appreciate any help.
thanks,
***********
"We have a member who has been attending our ward for over a month, we requested the membership records and received the following report. "MIS Rejection - Held Records. This record you have recently requested has a move restriction on it from the prior unit. The prior bishop has been notified about your request. The prior bishop has the option to keep the record or release it. If the prior bishop releases the record it will be sent to your unit. If you have any further questions, please contact your Stake Clerk."


What do we do?"

I'd suggest having the bishop contact the bishop of the other ward. There may be some confidential issues they need to discuss.

To find out who to call, have the bishop call the local leaders support.

What you are encountering is a Move restriction that was put on the record by the current bishop. That bishop has been notified and will probably contact your bishop so they can discuss the matter. Or your bishop can look up the current bishop in the Church Directory of Organizations and Leaders and contact him.
