Finding baptismal records

Postby louderma » Sun Apr 26, 2020 3:32 pm

Is there a way to track down baptismal records of someone who has passed? It is my understanding that baptisms prior to the 1980s had the priesthood holder who performed the ordinance listed. I am trying to locate the man who baptized my late father. Any advice?

That information may be there, but I'm not sure as the church would expend the resources needed to locate it.

You can ask your clerk to call support and see what they're willing to do.

Note that even if you do get a name, the church has stopped helping people locate another member.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.
