Re: LDS Records
In Response To: Re: LDS Records ()
Actually not so. It doesn't matter if you a member or not to be included in LDS records. ALL people in a particular drawer of vital records,ect. are microfilmed and indexed by the LDS. Now If I decided to submit my own data to the church to be made available for all to see and use I can show a particular ancestor as 'sealed' to their spouse, a child sealed to parents, etc. The only way you can be sealed in the laws of the LDS church is to have been a member and then gone thru a ritual/ceremony to be sealed ( to seal the relationship).
