Finding members

Postby zaneclark » Fri Dec 28, 2018 10:00 am

Every year our bishopric sends out a Christmas letter to the ward. It has 2 purposes, the first is to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and the second is to find which addresses are still valid. So far, the bishop has given me about 40 returned letters and I have been plowing through them to find a correct address. I have found one trick which has proved helpful when people search services can't find them. Every persons record has their parents listed. If the either of the parents are members, it gives the unit number of their current ward . Clicking on this number brings up the basic information on the name and location of the ward, the bishop, and his contact information. I send emails to the bishops asking them to contact the parents in the ward to see if they can help in finding their son or daughter. Most bishops respond and I have been able to send out some records to new locations.

I have tried that method as well, but with limited success. I had a subscription with, which I think was pretty good, but I have switched to to see if it yields better results. I use these services mainly for personal use, but they come in handy for my calling as well.
