how do I add a baptism to my dads record? He recently passed and I can't reserve other ordinances because they say not available
Looked at the ID# of the father and sent the patron a message regarding Not Ready.
The Article "Missing ordinance and membership information in Family Tree,
Gives solutions when ordinances and membership information does not show in Family Tree
check with your father's unit clerk: The ward or branch clerk must add a death date to the Church record
They may need a copy of your father's death record - funeral program, death certificate, obituary, other death notice
Your question will be forwarded to a specialty team for review and resolution. You may be contacted by that team if they need more information.
Angela, Your father only passed away recently. If he was active in the church when he passed, his ward/clerk will send in his death information. Please give this a little time. This action will probably cause a duplicate with a different ID starting with KW. You will need to merge. Please keep the KW record as the surviving record.
If your father was not active in the church when he passed, please respond to this comment with that information and we will advise. The church probably does not have a record of his death. You will need to provide that. A funeral program, newspaper clip, death certificate, obituary. Then FamilySearch will find his membership and connect the dots. Please let us know which is your situation.
For his baptism to show, his death record must come from the church some way, just adding the death information into FS is not sufficient.
