I have a member with a child that is approaching 8, and is scheduled to be baptized next moth. However, this member would like their child baptized in another ward while they are on vacation. Can that be done? If so who does the interview and who fills out the forms? I know we should input the reco...

We have one case in this thread (the 2nd post, from kd7mha) where a temple recorder thought to ask where the records should go, and they went to the appropriate unit accordingly (in opposition of the standard practice that is usually assumed to be true). That's the thing that made me change that to...

We recently had a sister in our ward who was sealed in the temple. The temple recorded the sealing. And then her records were moved out of our ward to her husband's ward -- apparently automatically. Or at least we didn't send her record. The record is moved automatically when the new family is crea...

But, I appreciate the suggestion about working with the clerk and MLS. The bishopric counselor suggested that we send a sign up sheet around. I think I need to indicate on the sheet, the "family phone number to be listed in MLS." It might be better to say "Family phone number to be s...

We recently had a couple of wards order maps from Salt Lake. I was looking at one of them when it came in and noticed that there was a block of text that addressed the fact that there may be uninhabited areas in the ward boundaries but every part of the earth needed to be assigned a unit. I was in ...

A geographical break up is a very logical way to delegate these stewardships and cover every square inch of earth on this planet (which covers every human being). We recently had a couple of wards order maps from Salt Lake. I was looking at one of them when it came in and noticed that there was a b...

Actually using a lookup site to get the IP is less effective than one might think. I just did a lookup of LDS.org and got 216.49.176.33, yet when I type it into my browser I get an error. As a result of shared IP addresses in datacenters most servers also request data on the domain name in your bro...

I suspect that there may be one of three reasons why it does not use LDS Account for sign in. The first is that they have not worked out the issue of giving credentials to non-Church member users of newFamilySearch. The other two least likely reasons are that it has not rolled out to all temple dis...

You lose the personal contact that is an opportunity to resolve any questions, inspire, testify, and express appreciation. There is typically some discussion about the topic and specific points to be covered, length of talk, who else is speaking, etc. that goes on when I have asked someone to speak,...

That's why I attempted to do it myself. The mission office here typically takes 30+ days before a convert membership record shows up in MLS. Having spent nine months in a mission office doing this (before computers), that doesn't seem unreasonable, although it probably seems outrageous from the vie...
