Re: Sealing to parents problems

I have cards that show correct sealing to the correct parents is done, yet family search is giving me the message "This sealing-to-parents ordinance is valid, but the parents are not listed because of privacy or they may not match those in Family Tree. Click here for more information". Th...

Re: Intermediate Hymn in the new meeting format?

I think “intermediate hymn” is an outdated and essentially meaningless term. Used in a 2-hour conference session it might make sense, but not in one-hour Sacrament service. My ward is trying to maintain the old ways (e.g. closing hymn in Relief Society) and “intermediate hymn” between speakers in S...

Erasing hard drives with BleachBit

The official instructions in the Help Center for scrubbing a hard drive of a decommissioned clerk computer are found here: Erasing a Hard Drive . But I found the results to be entirely unsatisfactory. The instructions say to use BleachBit to first scrub the free space and then shred all folders on t...

This is as good a place as any until we determine more specifically what you are talking about. But in any case, please note that we are just a commun...

Re: Name Change

OK, so is it going to be Church of Jesus Christ Tools? I'm hoping for something like Gospel Tools. The official announcement only mentioned Gospel Library (keeping its name) and LDS Music (changing to Sacred Music). For all other apps, we just need to wait for announcements, following the counsel: ...

Re: Preventing others from adding names to family tree

If you believe the person was added in error, you could remove them from the parents or delete the record altogether. You can't delete a person that was added by someone else. You can only delete a person for whom you are the only contributor. I wouldn't recommend removing the person from family re...

Re: Intermediate Hymn in the new meeting format?

There's no intermediate hymn mentioned, but there are specific mentions of opening, closing, and sacrament hymns. I would interpret this to mean that as a general rule, there is no intermediate hymn in the new format. I don't see any change in the policy at all. The truth is that "as a general...

Re: obra bicaria

In addition to getting permission from the closest living relative, you must also be related to the person. See the First Presidency Letter of 29 February 2012. You cannot perform ordinances for an unrelated friend.

Re: Did You Know The "Help" Link Doesn't Help?

In that situation, you can use the "Forgot your username" and "Forgot your password" links on the login page to get help. Those links will take you to the Account Recovery page, which is indeed helpful. But it's also interesting to note that once you get to the Account Recovery ...
