Recording baby blessing from a previous ward

Postby jeffwiseman » Tue Jun 08, 2021 10:24 am

I am the membership clerk. We have a member who said their child is not in their records. They blessed their baby in 2019 (in a previous ward), but it was not recorded by the previous ward. How do I add that record now?

I don't know as you can do much about the unrecorded blessing, but as long as you have the parents permission, you should still be able to create the record.

But first, I'd verify there is no record. Try doing a move-in based on the name/birthdate. It's possible it was created, but never linked to the parents. IF that's the case, you'll want to link them rather than creating a duplicate record.

Simply doing a "pull" of the child's records should be sufficient, but that doesn't find anything, it might be the case that the old ward entered an incorrect piece of data when creating the record. Assuming the record "pull" isn't successful, contacting the previous ward clerk and seeing if they know anything about that, doesn't hurt and can help avoid the curse of duplicate records.
