So now my membership record says that my wife and I and all of our wonderful children moved here several years ago from a student singles ward with a really big number. Being married with children at the time, I would never have qualified to live in that singles ward in the first place.
Makes you wish they went back to listing the two most recent units on the record (though then Address Unknown counted as a unit.)

We've been through this a few times in our ward.

If you can't request the entire family by head of household, your BEST bet (for all parties concerned) is to request each member individually and then recombine the family unit after the individuals are in your ward.

Don't mess up another ward's records to save 20 minutes.

(Having been on the other side of this... :) )

This is why I try to move individuals myself when they move, so that I can control how they are transferred.
