MRN recovery process

Postby lisamcbride » Tue Sep 06, 2016 9:59 pm

I became an LDS member back in 2009 when I was baptized in Florence Oregon. I moved to Reno, Nevada but haven't been active in the Church. I recently began researching my genealogy and I want to access the family tree and family search tools online with member privileges but I don't have access to my MRN. I thought I attached it to my LDS Account when I set it up in 2009 but the system keeps asking me for it whenever I request info on these sites. I do not know which ward I'm in here in Nevada. I haven't been to church for sometime. Am I still eligible to access my MRN number from a ward clerk? How do I locate my assigned ward? Can't find my baptism records or anything. Help

maps.lds.org will show you what ward you belong to. Once you make contact and request your records, then they'll have your MRN.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

Thanks for your help but I was unable to access maps because I don't have my MRN number associated with my LDS account. I was able to get my Ward information through another website and now I just need to call them or stop by. I'm sure they will help me. Thanks again for your post.

That's good but for anyone else who encounters this thread, you don't have to have an MRN on your LDS account to lookup up the ward for your location. In fact, you don't need an LDS Account at all. Simply go to maps.lds.org (with or without logging in) and enter your address and it will tell you the assigned ward for you location.
