name wrong in Directory

Postby hillaryjacobs » Sat Jul 16, 2011 3:22 am

My maiden name is listen in the directory. How would I update that information. I just recently started attending church again and my husband is a non-member. I would like to update our informtion and have me listed under my married name and have my husband also put on the list. How would I do this. I tried to update my profile but it would not let me change my name

Talk to your Ward Clerk, he can make those changes.

As stated, you need to talk to your ward membership clerk. He needs to record the marriage in your membership records. Note that it's church policy to record your legal name, so he may ask for some ID to verify the name change.

To have your non-member husband listed on the records, church policy requires that the ward receive permission from your husband to do so.
