The First Presidency requests custody of the record of monogamous (1896-1907) and plural (1897-1904) marriages which Anthony W. Ivins performed by Presidency authority in Mexico. Now the First presidency has custody of marriage records of three residents of the Juarez Stake who had Presidency authorization to perform post-1890 polygamous marriage in Mexico: Alexander F. Macdonald (1888-90, 1900-1903), George Teasdale (1891-96), and Ivins. However, the First Presidency furnishes this information only to descendants of the marriages performed by Ivins. Through Canadian apostle Hugh B. Brown, the First Presidency obtains custody of the record of marriages performed in Canada by Charles O. Card and John A. Woolf.
