Priesthood Ordination Records


Post by f253880 »

My son is on a mission in Manchester, New Hampshire. They had a Catholic Priest who was converted and recently baptized in the ward he was serving in ([Member name removed] - Burlington Vermont). He had asked my son to see about getting a priesthood lineage record from my son Elder {full name removed] who performed his ordination to the Melchizedek priesthood. He wants the priesthood ordination record from my son, going all the way back to Joseph Smith (Joseph Smith receiving the Melchizedek priesthood from Peter, James & John). He has seen other members display this special ordination record within their homes and would like a copy of his record dating back to Joseph Smith. How do you go about getting this record? Please advise, and thank you for your assistance.

Your ward clerk can provide you a copy of your Individual Ordinance Summary. Most of your ordinance information is also available to you in the Member Tools app and in the Directory on However, neither one provides a easy way to print that information in an easily readable format (at least not one I know of). So if you want a printed format you'll probably want to ask your ward clerk or membership clerk.
