Update to parents names

Postby kbhuffaker » Sun Aug 14, 2016 8:42 pm

I have a new member in our ward that was baptized last year. He pointed out to me that the names of his parents on his family record was spelled incorrectly. His parents are not members. I don't see a way to edit his parents names. What do I need to do to correct the spelling of these names?

You may not be able to do that in LCR. Have you checked MLS?
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

Currently that has to be done in MLS still. Select Membership > Individual Record and find the member's record. Select the Parents tab on the left and then use the Edit link in the upper right corner of each box for the mother and father to change the spelling or other information.
