Where can we find Primary graduation certificates?

Children advance from Primary when they reach age 12. Leaders may give them a certificate of advancement (see Handbook 2, 11.4.3). The certificate is available through the Member and Leader Services (MLS) system, accessible only to specific ward leaders. Have your ward clerk click on Reports/Forms from the MLS menu bar, and then click Certificates. It is also available on LDS.org Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) in Reports > Certificates > Primary Advancement.

I was asked by a member if I could get them a copy of their child’s blessing certificate. It was from five years ago and in another ward. Is there any way to do this?

The original certificate is not saved anywhere.... It is generated at time of printing.
The clerk can print a new blessing certificate at any time before baptism is recorded, however you will need to get the info from the member..... Date of blessing and who blessed the child.
The name of the current Ward will be printed on the new certificate.... I don't know of any way to change that?
There is a place for the Bishop to sign.

And it won't be the right bishop.

In short, all you can do is produce a certificate that "proves" the baby was blessed. You can't really reproduce the original.

A certificate can be printed for any member that is in your unit.
There are 11 types of people. Those who understand Gray Code and those that don't.

Thanks I didn't know that could be done... You have to go to the [print certificates] link in the [Reports] menu rather than the members ordinances details tab in their record.
