Do we need special permission to have my grandfather's church membership record recreated?
My grandfather joined the church after he married my grandmother. We have his baptismal certificate. He recently died after years of being inactive. We were instructed to have our bishop pull his church membership record into our ward and then the ward clerk could mark his record deceased. Our bishop has not been able to locate his membership record using the information from his baptismal certificate. My grandparents were divorced in 1972. How can we find his church record or do we need special permission to have it recreated?
