Finding friends

#1

Post by luvmy8dz-p40 »

Is there a way to find member friends, converts, acquaintances, etc. who I have lost track of? I am specifially referring to people I taught and baptized while on my mission 20 years ago (Dang I'm old!!!) and have since lost track of.

The Church does not have a service such as you are asking about for the general membership. The roadblock to that is personal privacy. If the person does not live within your own stake then you on your own.

Have you tried finding your answer on the ChurchofJesusChrist.org Help Center?

It's a bit of a long shot but you may want to try mission.net. It is a great website centered around missions of the Church. Each mission has it's own website where old companions, converts, and mission families can interact.

I'm already registered on that site--no luck so far.

If the individuals whom you baptised still live in the same area - a possibility - then you might try getting in touch with the current Bishop of the ward/branch. You can obtain that information, including mailing address and phone number from the Church's On-Line Directory.
