Baptismal ordinance not entered

#1

Post by lsholland »

A boy was baptized, but ordinance was never recorded. He's nine now. Pictures of his baptism exist. What's the correct procedure to get that info into mls and make sure that it actually happened?

I believe Handbook 1 contains the answers you seek.

Handbook 1: 16.1.10 explains what to do when there is no record of an ordinance, how to gather the necessary information, and obtaining permission from the bishop to record the ordinance on the membership record.
