Since the clerk or bishop should see the document, and since the bishop saw the document or he would not have been authorized to perform the marriage (in Oklahoma), I would think that the requirement has been met in this case.

The bishop reviewed the document and then asked the clerk to update the record. Works for me. [grin]

I can agree with that. When I was a clerk, normally I'd use my best judgment but if there was any question I'd ask the Bishop. I'd say 90% of the time the info came from the Bishop or the individual directly, so there really wasn't much question.

I am also trying to find out if there is a way to generate a report of Members who have Died.
Anyone know if there is a way to see or get a report of Member who have Died?

Typically when a member dies, their record is removed from MLS. If MLS doesn't track the action (like it does for move-outs), then I don't see how you could create a report except to go over all the transactions that were printed out/saved.

Just for kicks, you could do the move-out report and see if it has what you need.
