Changing Name In Church Records.

Recommended Posts

If a person changes their name via deed poll (I'm thinking of doing so) is it possible to change past church records to the new name. Has anyone heard of this being done before?

I have already had two last names...I was adopted. Three if you count taking upon me the name of Christ.

If you have your ward clerk change your name for you, your file will carry your newly-changed name wherever you go. The Church identifies you by your membership number, though previous aliases are probably still kept for genealogical purposes. Or, if you'd rather keep the old name and have the new one be your preferred name, that's a fairly easy change as well. I do this kind of stuff all the time.
