Oh man, requiring the form....! I've let parents send me the info by text rather than fill out the form. I've let Bishopric members just report to me that it happened and who performed the blessing or ordinance. This is going to be painful to require forms. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. But, I'm guessing they're doing it because they want parent signatures on the docs.simataas wrote:I appreciate all the knowledge passed on in this thread! I was able to create a record for a baby blessed today in our ward, print out a blessing certificate, and then move the baby out of the ward and into his father's household in their home ward. It all worked seamlessly.
Interestingly, LCR has recently changed to require a "Child of Record" form be uploaded to create the record and record the blessing. A "Baptism and Confirmation" form is similarly required for recording baptisms now; even for 8 year old members of record that are BIC and baptized in their home ward.
(Why don't they send out info to clerks that these changes are happening? It would be good to know in advance.)
