Re: Advice for Moving Records

This is one of the toughest parts of being clerk. In some wards you get good help from the ward council. But in normal wards you will get very little help and most of it will come from the RS. Just keep trying. There are several ways to do this. Asking for help, talking to individual leaders,(best l...

Bishops information only in bishopric and church building notebooks....

"Send a Message" Function on LCR

Request that the send message confirmation email include a list of names that the message went to. It would be nice to be able to check back and be sure I didn't miss anyone. Don't need email address simply a list of names. As the sender I had access to those names so including a list of who it went...

800 numbers

Has anyone put together a list of LUS(local unit support) phone numbers where they now go. The number I have been calling for the last decade is suddenly for checking on checks. It will still get me other places as I can always get assistance and have them route me the right place. But it would be b...

Re: Ward Maps

You can also order the maps through the church map department but they would rather you simply printed them from CDOL. They will try and talk you through doing that first. Now those maps show very little detail. If you need maps with more detail you will have to go the long way and create them throu...

Re: Statistics of Pictures in LDS Tools

You probably need to count manually if you want numbers that mean something. Remember there is a family photo and individual photos and some people are doing 1 or the other. So a husband and wife might have 1,2, or 3 photos listed. To know how many adults have pictures up you probably need to count ...

Re: received record with incorrect address

Why? Church headquarters will wait a month or 2 and ship it back to you.(learned the hard way early) Yes, they've started doing that since 2013. I have to wonder how successful that's been. The actually must have started it earlier because I got my first records back in late 2011 or early 2012. Bec...

Re: received record with incorrect address

Back when I took over as clerk we had 2 or 3 dozen families in the ward who's records had been moved in that way. I tried to be sure on my watch it never happened with outgoing records. If that means we sit on records who we know are elsewhere for a decade, oh well. I would not wait a decade. If I ...
