    Is there, or is there in the planning stages, a way to get a digital copy of a deceased ancestor’s partriarchal blessing?

    Thank you.

    Larry Brasher, you may request a patriarchal blessing of a deceased, direct-line ancestor. I don’t know if they email a digital copy or if they mail a paper copy. you could always scan the paper cou to digitize it.

    My birthdate in my Patriarchal blessing is wrong ,what should I do?

  • Larry Richman April 14, 2014, 12:33 pm


    I would suggest you talk with your bishop about this. He sould know what to do, or he can find out from the stake patriarch or stake president.

    I know you can get patriarchal blessings for deceased ancestors but is that if they were only members?

  • Larry Richman August 27, 2015, 6:35 pm


    The deceased ancestor would have had to be a member and received a patriarchal blessing during his or her life.
