Perhaps this should be feedback that in the case of the prior unit being "Address Unknown" it would be very useful to always have knowledge of the 'prior prior' unit as you say. There is no one to contact if the prior unit is solely Address Unknown.

I let the developer know already.

In the case of the OP it was several years ago, I don't know why you would be contacting the prior unit then, but I agree it would be nice to show still. With the change they made if the address unknown and the unit before that was within the last year you would see both.

LCR 3.4 did not show when the previous unit for a member was "Address Unknown." It jumped over the address unknown record in the history and showed the unit before that. LCR 4.0 now provides that information.

Hmm, crazy. It must have been in unknown address for roughly 5-minutes. I guess that is actually more concerning then. As the Ward Clerk if I need to contact a prior Bishop and they have been in the Ward I won't see the prior Ward if they were in the Unknown Address File.

You will see the prior ward if they have been in that ward within the last 12 months. Otherwise the GSC should be able to provide the bishop with the prior unit in the rare cases where it's needed after more than a year.
