If your ward is similar to mine, a MLS report of YSA would not be very accurate, as a good number of those listed as single are actually married. Inactive members don't typically report when their marriage status changes (this is also the case when they get divorced - the record says married, but th...

Switching between documents

My mother-in-law is using a Kindle (classic) to read scriptures; however she finds it very cumbersome and ineffective for use when looking up references during Sunday lessons. I showed her how my iPhone version of the Gospel Library App is very easy to create separate reference "windows" a...

Check birth date

When I was a clerk in an English speaking ward outside the US, I more than once had trouble getting member records, because the member wrote their birth date in format d/m/y (normal for their country of origin) when I was expecting m/d/y - something for you to check.

I agree 100% with RossEvans. To me it makes no sense to expect a map marker to NOT move based on the system's interpretation of the changed address (even if it's just a correction to the address and not an actual move). Lacking an option in MLS to indicate that it is not an actual move, I would expe...

Out of unit member records are temporary and require information from the missionary's IOS which many missionaries, if any, do not have with them. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't one only need their membership number (and birth date) to create an out of unit record? In that case, the missionar...

First Presidency Approval for Ward Members Outside the Boundaries

I would like to hear about any situations where approval from the First Presidency was granted to allow a member to be in a ward while their residence is outside the ward boundaries. Obviously, reasons such as "the member prefers to be in the other ward" or "the other ward's building ...

I could see this as a potential security issue if the address for the missionary's residence is provided.
Maybe the mission office address would be better.

Is there any reason why the check from the council made out the the troop couldn't be signed over to the ward by the chartered organization head (the bishop), the scoutmaster or the treasurer (or whoever the appropriate troopleader)?

I know from current status of our records that this is not the case. All indications are that they'll remain unless local leaders cancel their membership.
