Update Your Account


There are many resources available to assist you in your calling as stake indexing director. Make sure you are making the most of all of the information and reports available by updating your email address and preferences. You can do this yourself:

  1. Visit www.FamilySearch.org, and sign in to the account you use as stake indexing director, which is most likely the same as your LDS Account.
  2. Click your name in the top right corner, and then click Settings.
  3. Under the FamilySearch logo in the top left corner, click the tab labeled Contact.
  4. Click inside the email box, and update your email address.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the blue Save Changes box.

You may also want to change your preferred language:

  1. Go to indexing.familysearch.org
  2. Click Sign In.
  3. Sign in with your indexing username and password.
  4. In the top right corner of the page, click the down arrow next to “Languages.”
  5. Select English from the list. (This step is necessary to reset your language preferences for notifications.)
  6. Again, click the down arrow next to“Languages.”
  7. Select your preferred language from the list.
  8. Click Sign Out.

Once you finish these steps, your preferred language will be noted on your profile.
Additionally, in order to access reports in the coming new indexing system, you need to do a couple things. First, talk with your ward or stake clerk to make sure your name appears next to the appropriate indexing calling in the Member and Leader Services software (MLS). Your ward or stake clerk will be happy to make sure you are properly accounted for in the Church system so you can access these reports.

By updating your preferred language and email address, you can continue to receive important indexing communications. If you run into any problems making these changes, you may contact support.

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to your calling. We encourage you to visit the stake indexing director website on LDS.org. Here, you will learn more about new resources and how to magnify your calling to help hasten the work in your area.
