Prior to the recent change of combing HP and EQ the HP Group leader was responsible for all family history in the ward as far as I know. Now that we are combined, is the EQ president responsible in the same way? Is there any statement from church leaders on this yet? Thanks all!

Here are some pertinent quotes from general conference:

Having one Melchizedek Priesthood quorum in a ward unifies priesthood holders to accomplish all aspects of the work of salvation, including the temple and family history work previously coordinated by the high priests groups.

-- "The Elders Quorum," Elder D. Todd Christofferson


I testify that as we move forward with this inspired quorum restructuring in our wards and stakes, we will see a multitude of blessings. Let me cite just a few examples.

Under the direction of the bishop, more priesthood resources may assist with the work of salvation. This would include the gathering of Israel through temple and family history work, working with families and individuals in need, and helping the missionaries to bring souls to Jesus Christ.

-- "Behold! A Royal Army," Elder Ronald A. Rasband

The last (4th) video / link at https://www.lds.org/topics/family-histo ... g&old=true has been renamed from "High Priest group leader Resources" to "Elders Quorum President Resources".

But there are still several places that may still be mentioning "High Priests group leader" rather than "Elders Quorum President".

If the high priests group leader was responsible for something before April Conference, the elders quorum president is responsible for it now.
