However, your example was an unusual one, where the preferred name doesn't change the first name, but rather changes the last name. That's quite rare, and there is no one in our stake that does that, so I can't confirm whether or not the problem you are seeing is unique to a change in last name for...

The place it truncates the list seems to vary, but there's definitely some sort of bug which leads to incomplete downloads. For two of the wards in my stake, I got the complete download, but for others, I got varying portions of the ward included in the download -- always starting at the beginning ...

Sure. Just use http://new.lds.org/maps , login, and on the "My Ward and Stake" tab (the one with the meetinghouse icon) select "Entire Stake". Then click on the icon to the right of the "Households..." heading that looks like a green down arrow. That will give you a CSV file containing the lat/long...

In my case, I'd plug them in to ArcGIS 10 to generate stake geocodes.

Not at this time, and I haven't heard of any plans for such. I would hope that such tools would be available at some point, but for now, the only tools for boundary realignment are found in Stake MLS. At the very least, would it be possible for assistant stake clerks like me to extract lat/long dat...

Is that the case now? It wasn't a few months ago.

Linking donor records

As long as every ward you donated in 1) had you membership record while you were there 2) successfully linked your donor record to your membership record, then you shouldn't have to go chase down your statements from each ward individually any more! Meanwhile - and I know this isn't CUBS-related - ...

At a stake conference in 2006, our visiting General Authority said that ward clerks should sit on the stand at sacrament meeting, and stake clerks at stake conference. That is what we have more or less done since (even in chapels that don't have a clerk's desk) but I'd still feel more comfortable se...

Maybe the rule of thumb should be to only make them HoH when they firmly declare that they have moved 'out of home' and are working or self supporting or marry. But if they are going home to get their washing done or to eat a proper meal that mum makes, then surely they shouldn't be HoH, in my opin...

I like this suggestion, but if the returned child is on a mission (or about to be), I would group them with the parents. My general rule of thumb for becoming a separate household (when I flag it for the wards as stake membership clerk) is the September 1st after the 18th birthday. Exceptions inclu...
