Change LDS Account after remarriage

#1

Post by chrispalombi »

We just got married (24 March 2017 in the LDS Temple) and my membership information has been updated to my new name. I now would like to update my user ID and password for lds.org and family search, but cannot find the help info needed to do so. I have contacted my ward clerk and he has verified that the membership record has been updated to my new name. However, when I log in to lds.org, I still need to use my old name and password and therefore, get my previous name and information. Family search still shows my previous married name and I want to change it to my new married name.

I believe you can go to ldsaccount.lds.org and change your user name. You won't be able to change your last name, but that doesn't appear anywhere else.

Log into FamilySearch, click on your username at the top right and select "settings".
