Updating pages that refer to Family HIstory guidelines updated at Conference

There are new guidelines for Family HIstory - can you update this page and the links on the subsequent pages? Need to adjust for the addition of Elder's Quorum President - thanks!

  • At the bottom of the page of the URL that you just shared. Click the FEEDBACK link on that page and fill it out and submit. That will get it to the people who work with the lds.org website.

    The Get Satisfaction site here is for FamilySearch. Not for lds.org.

  • If the LDS.ORG site you mentioned had "High Priest Group Leader" mentioned on the list for that main page, it doesn't now.

    But the "Ward Council" and "Bishop" links from that page still mention "High priests group leader". So I did a feedback on those pages just now too.

    But I don't know why the church hasn't got their ducks lined up yet, 3 weeks after the 3/31/18 announcement. Apparently they kept the announcement secret from their own web developers up til 3/31. And correlation needs more than 3 weeks to implement major changes.

  • This is the cookie-cutter reply I just now got from my LDS.ORG feedback input:

    "Thank you for contacting us about the documentation for the recent changes in the Priesthood quorums. Your local leadership will have the information as soon as it is released. We encourage you to contact them.
    Sincerely, Response Team Volunteer JG"

    So JG implies that I should just ignore all LDS.ORG web pages that haven't been updated?

    And I really don't want to trouble my "local leadership" about this kind of detail yet. But maybe I will ask them to pass any updates they get, to me as they get them. Then I will compare those updates to what is still on the respective LDS.ORG web pages, then maybe do another feedback if needed.
    • Several things that I have noticed...

      First, the change is not instantaneous and we were told this at conference.

      Second, the organization of the Elders' quorum, to include all Melchizedek Priesthood holders, is under the authority of the Stake President. He holds the keys and must be the one to set the new Quorum Presidency apart.

      Last Sunday (April 22), we sustained our new Quorum Presidency. Prior to that time, we had still been operating under our previous organization (HP Group and Elders' Quorum) as separate entities.

      Eventually, our Stake President will visit our ward (there are thirteen units in our Stake) and take care of setting the newly called and sustained brethren.

      So, yes. Matters of this nature should always first be directed to your local leadership. They, if there are questions, are responsible for escalating the questions and concerns up through the channels.
