Dear Family History Consultants, Family History Center and Extraction Directors, and Priesthood Leaders,
We need to correct some information that went out last week in an e-mail under the heading Helping Youth Register.
Youth ages 8 to 12 can register only if they have parental consent. Consultants should take care to not provide parental consent if assisting youth from that age group (including deacons or beehives who have not yet turned 13) to register. Consultants should not check the parental consent box when registering a youth for an account; only parents or legal guardians should do that. To do otherwise would be illegal and expose the consultant to liability.
Youth age 13 and above do not require parental consent.
We apologize for any confusion our prior communication may have caused.
