LDS Ward and Stake Directory

LDS ACCOUNT
With the expansions the Church is making to its websites, an LDS account is becoming more and more valuable. An LDS Account allows you to:
  • Access ward and stake information.
  • Login to new.familysearch.org and learn more about your family’s history.
  • Access secure Church websites.
  • Create a profile on Mormon.org and start sharing your testimony online.
  • Access your personal study notebook on new.lds.org.
  • Make purchases in the new online store, coming soon.

STAKE and WARD DIRECTORY
On the Internet go to lds.org
·   Click on Tools at the upper right
·   Click on Directory
     Sign in using your lds account
           
The default is to Households.

Click on My Household. Each member of the family is listed. There is space for each one to have a photo, phone number and email address.

By clicking Edit Profile, you can add this information for each member of the family. You can only edit your own family.  Any information entered is made public unless you choose not to have it made public. 

In that case, only authorized leaders of the ward and stake can view your information.  You cannot add pictures for others unless you are signed in under their lds account.

Click on Photos and notice that there is a space to add a photo for each family.
