1 .Personal Records
You may have your line of authority somewhere in your personal records. Some
of the brethren carry wallet cards with the information. You may have a parent,
a brother, a spouse or other close relative who has access to the line of
authority you are seeking. You can also request the line of authority directly
from the priesthood holder who ordained you to your current office or from
a family member of that person if they are available.
2. Church Records
The LDS church is now supplying priesthood lines of authority upon request and at no charge.
NEW!!! The great news is that if you supply the right information you can receive your line of authority by
email in a PDF format as early as the next day!!! *
Member Services has also traditionally supplied them by mail or fax. Check with them when you place
your request as to the delivery method that best suits your needs.

Because of privacy concerns and in order to locate your records you will be asked to verify some
personal information. The more of the following information you have the easier it is for them to
identify the correct line and the faster it can be sent to you. Not all the items may be necessary.
- Full name of the priesthood holder
- Date of birth
- Current ward and stake
- Current priesthood office held
- Address and ZIP Code
- Who performed the ordination
- Membership record number if available
Member Services will process your request once it arrives, please review it for accuracy. The church may
or may not have your complete record, and it may be possible that some errors exist in the information
they have. If you discover a discrepancy between the church records and your own, please notify
Member Services with the corrections.
