My Mum would love a new cope of her Blessing but does not have internet access. How can I help her get her own new copy? Thanks

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?

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.
