I read a post you posted about being willing to share some ward histories and I need to see some examples, Thank you so much. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sent. Please let me know if you have any questions. There is not a lot of "prescriptive" direction - I think that is on purpose to allow different wards and stakes to compile histories that are appropriate to their situation. Your Stake Clerk would be the one to answer specific questions of items your stake requires.
As you will see in the examples, sometimes we have more and sometimes less - usually depending on the personality of the organization leaders in what they submit (if anything) to me, as Ward Clerk, to compile. It would be great if we had a ward historian who loved to compile this information, but we have never had anyone in that calling in the 20 years we have lived in this ward.
