How do I change my LDS.Org Account Last name?

Postby wigglesandgigglesut » Sat Oct 07, 2017 1:23 pm

I got remarried, and I want to change my last name on my LDS.Org Account Name, in the settings for LDS.Org.

On my church membership, my last name is correct.

However, on LDS.Org, in the Account Settings, and on Family Search, my name still has the last name of my ex-husband.

Please help me figure out how to change my last name.

Thank you.

I would like to know this, too. I created my account before I married my ex, and after I updated my records with my divorce, it still showed his name. I tried talking to my membership clerk about a year ago, and he couldn't find the fix. I too have since remarried in the temple, and it still shows my ex's last name on my account.

The ward clerk will need to contact support for a fix. I don't think it can be fixed by either one of you directly.
