Ward Historian vs History Specialist

Postby xigiff » Sun Nov 29, 2015 4:44 pm

Ward Historian vs History Specialist, is there a difference? I am at the Stake Level and working to get information out to those in the wards on how our stake would like to assemble these over the next few months. With that, I am reaching out to the wards, and finding some have callings called Ward Historian, and some have History Specialists.

The standard name of the calling in the Church systems is "History Specialist." "Ward Historian" would be a custom calling created by the clerk in a ward. However, my guess is that their assigned responsibilities would be similar or the same.

If you have access to CDOL, see which ones are custom callings (orange text) and which are standard callings.

Also, on Leader and Clerk Resources – custom callings have an asterisk to the right of the calling name in Callings by Organization.
