Changes in membership records

Postby sfolkman » Tue Oct 19, 2010 4:16 pm

When a membership record is changed, on the next update of MLS, you get a message telling you that and an option to print out the record. Now with new.lds.org, a variety of clerks and/or members of the bishopric may enter a change. If they do not notify the membership clerk of their action, the membership clerk typically just prints out the new record and replaces the old one but is not sure what changes were made.

Here is my question: Is there some way to know what was changed in the membership record, short of looking at the previously printed membership record and comparing?

Thanks.

When the new membership record is sent to MLS, there is a list of the changes that were made. You can review that list to see if it was a phone number change, or address change, or recording an ordinance, etc.

Since the record is sent to MLS, that's where the change notice is sent. There is no way to see the list of changes on the leader section of new.lds.org.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
