Archive Search

As we have been providing Priesthood Lines of Authority for our customers, we have archived all of the information we have received. If you know who ordained you but have not been able to find out that person’s lineage, or you are doing family history work, e-mail us with whatever facts you currently have and we will check our database to see if we can provide you with the information you are seeking.

In the event that we are unable to find any information, the church has now begun to track certain priesthood lines once again. See the instructions below.

True Story

We received a archive request from a woman in Arizona who had not heard from the person who ordained her husband in several years. Through an exhaustive search and help from above, we were able to locate the man and reconnect them. As it turns out, this man and his wife lived in the very same stake in Tennessee as we did at the time!

The Lord does work in miraculous ways!

Requesting Priesthood Line of Authority information from Church Headquarters:

The Church has started a new program where you can contact them for Line of Authority information, as long as the person is directly related to you.

Call 801-240-3500 (or 800-453-3860 toll free), ask for Member Services, and choose option 6, and then option 2.

Be prepared to give as much information as possible.

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Current ward and stake
  • Address and ZIP Code
  • Who ordained you
  • Who ordained them, if known

Member Services will put in a request for your information and mail or fax you what they find.

You may now also email Church Membership with the same information and they will mail your line of authority to you.

Once you receive your information, don’t forget to come back to to order your Priesthood Line of Authority package!!
