Finding a member's previous address

Postby richardmace » Sun Mar 03, 2013 3:55 am


Apologies, as I am a brand new Ward Clerk with no previous clerk to contact! I want to send a members record back to their old ward, as they have moved back there. I need to provide the address, and it is the same as their address when they lived there before.

Does MLS keep an audit of people's previous Wards/addresses? I can't seem to find it, and I think it would be extremely helpful in situations like this. Especially YSA moving back to their parents house after University.

Many thanks,

'Bitten off more than he can chew' Ward Clerk.

Eons ago, when I was a ward clerk, I'd move them back with the notation of "regroup with parents". You can probably still do that with a Special Request.

Otherwise, all you can do is move them back to the prior ward (and hope the parents haven't moved while the child was away.)
