I then access Organizations, HPG and select remove, but then re-assign to EQ. On Fridays, I usually print a single list of of members Moved IN during last 2 months. This output ...

I've created Record of Membership before blessing was given. Several months later, I used "Record Child Blessing". Just be sure to include all existing data using "Find" option which should include existing Record Number. Afterwards, blessing will be noted on existing record. Pri...

Received upgrade to version 2.8.3. By 20 June, every time we'd attempt to backup database, MLS would freeze. Within Windows Task Manager there would appear 2 processes, both listed as MLS 2.8.3, and both listed as "Not Responding". One process displayed a Java Icon, the other, a Blue Dot. ...

Locally Created Records for Non-members

Do check within MLS Help , where, as I remember, one is not supposed to create Local Temporary Records for Non-Members without their permission and without them having at least one in their family who is a Member of Record , usually a spouse.

Is there any way to enter a "multi word" typeface name? I'd like to enter something like, <FONT FACE="monotype corsiva"> Text </FONT>. This results in default typeface. Single word typefaces work OK, e. g. OLDGATELANEOUTLINE, KENDRIC. Of course if one has their browser set to rej...

Internet E-mail vs. Secure Posting to LUWS EQ ONLY N & I Page

Because I-net E-mail is not secure, unless of course encrypted, I think it would be nice to have MLS pass all such updates to our secure Local Unit Web Site (LUWS) to be automatically posted to an Elders Quorum Viewable ONLY News and Information ( N & I ) page. There's already on our LUWS a Gene...

Is someone else within your family also using your same E-mail address? As a ward LUWS admin, I can see that several wives within our ward have probably unknowingly added their husband's E-mail address, although undisplayed within Membership Directory .

MP conferred: [date]

Melchizedek Priesthood conferred date should not change, no matter what other offices
are received after Elder. I've been at this since 1993 and don't remember ever seeing

Places of Birth - Places of Marriage

Following 2 US Government sites have recently been updated. I recommend these to Assistant Clerks for Membership Records. Many of our new members were born outside US of America. On-line search features are easy to use. http://geonames.usgs.gov/domestic/ http://earth-info.nga.mil/gns/html/index.html
