Can a clerk update his own personal record?

Postby abarrett-p40 » Tue Mar 23, 2010 4:15 pm

I'm recently called as an assistant ward clerk. I'm curious if I am allowed to update my own personal record? Am I allowed to update my own children's Ordinance Records?

As long that task is within your normal scope of duties, I can't think of any reason why not.

If it's not within your normal scope of duties, then I think it would be better to ask that person who normally does it - just to prevent confusion.

Records are only useful if they are accurate and up-to-date. If you see they are missing info or have old out-dated info and have the access and responsibility of taking care of ward records, yes. No one who uses that info would complain about having it updated.

I was membership clerk in three different wards. The first time, I corrected my place of birth to "Manhattan, New York, New York" because "New York, New York, New York" had confused a few people over the years. All three times, I sent off my own record because I was about to move.
