Log into FamilySearch, click on your name in the upper right corner, go to "Settings". Select "Contact".

I tried to do this and when I go to save my new address, it spits out an error and doesn't save. Any advice?

Address Change in Family Search

How do you change an address in Family Search. It doesn't seem to come from membership records. I am inquiring for my grandson who lived in Japan years ago and when he prints out temple cards, they always show his Japanese address and not his local home address. How do we get this changed.

There is no place under Contact Settings for Address.

Funny, I see it.

The fields are: Contact Name, Email, Phone Number, Mobile Number, Address, Country.

Are you looking under Contact Settings at Settings.ChurchofJesusChrist.org, or at FamilySearch.org?
At FamilySearch.org, you can see/update your address by signing in, clicking on your name (top right), then "Settings", then "Contact" (tab towards the top).

No place to change or update my address. My temple cards print with an address I had in college. No place to change address. ??

Make sure you're using the website. The mobile app doesn't have a place to change contact information.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.
