Ability to access web sites that would help in locating members

Postby haslams » Sun Oct 11, 2015 10:30 am

I appreciate all that the church is doing concerning all the filters that they have placed on our systems, but in doing so you have blocked our ability to use such urls as whitepages, people locator, and other sites that as clerks we have fewer resources to use in our attempts to find lost records or to find where a member has moved to so that the records could be moved to their new ward or branches, this is very frustrating and limits our abilities.

What are some of the sites other wards have found useful when trying to locate members who seem to have moved out of the area without anyone knowing? We are getting ready to make a push to move those records of people in this situation.

The wiki article Locating members has a good list (albeit somewhat out of date in places).

I've submitted a few sites to our filtering provider for them to be allowed.

I'm going to repost this as a new thread, but does anyone here have insight on purchasing a 'subscription/license' to the website BeenVerified.com and using it to assist in locating members?

It's always nice to see someone magnify their calling, but that's beyond what we've been asked to do.
