Two records created for same person

Postby rgoodman » Thu Jun 28, 2018 10:10 am

When child of record was baptized at age 10 the mission created a new record so now I have two records for this individual. How do I delete one of the records?

Thanks,

I'm not sure about LCR, but there is (was) a function to delete in the event of a duplicate.

Select Membership > Merge Duplicate Records from the menu in LCR.

I needed to merge a child with two records with different birth dates and when I merged from Membership > Merge Duplicate Records, it gave me a success message saying "The request to merge duplicate records has been received. Please wait a few days for Church administration to perform the requested merge." Thanks for the timely post!

I have a stray record for a child that was accidentally created by a previous clerk the family has since moved out and I am unable to delete the stray old record from system. I am unable to merge the record since there is no other record to merge with... Please help.

You will have to call Local Unit Support to have them work the issue with you.
