As I recall, it's not on the actual membership record. For many years, MLS was quietly discard that information when the record changed wards. I understand that LCR retains it.

LCR doesn't retain it -- there isn't anywhere to record it.

How is a blessing certificate created? It doesn't hold any of that information after pressing print?

No. The entered information is only used to generate the certificate.
