Why Family Historya

“All of our vast family history endeavor is directed to temple work. There is no other purpose for it. The temple ordinances become the crowning blessings the Church has to offer.” — President Gordon B. Hinckley, Ensign, May 1998, page 88.

How To Perform The Temple Work For Your Ancestors

From the comfort of your home (even if you’re in your pajamas):

a)  Go to the FamilySearch website.

b)  Start connecting your family.

c)  Check to see who needs temple ordinances.

d)  Select which ancestors to submit for temple work.

e)  Print a Family Ordinance Request.

f)  Perform the temple ordinances — smile, take the Family Ordinance Request to the Temple, and perform the Temple ordinances (if you don’t want to do the work yourself, just click a button in Family Tree and the Temple handles the rest).

It couldn’t be easier.  Just follow these steps using FamilySearch and you’re all set!


That’s it.  You’ve finished the  beginning of a Great Journey!

You’re registered on Family Tree, you’ve organized your stuff, you’ve got your Internet browser set up, you know how to research your family, and you know how to easily submit names for temple work.

We hope we’ve helped make Family History easy, fun and enjoyable for you by giving you the tools and instruction you need — and we wish you Godspeed and great success as you provide saving ordinances for your ancestors and their families.  And we know you’ll receive the guidance of the Spirit as you prayerfully engage in this great saving work.

And, remember, if you get stuck anywhere along the way, we’ve got fabulous Family History Consultants in the Stake Family History Center and in each ward to help with these challenges.

Now, one last thought:
The Lord will open doors and help us in our family history work
— after we have done all we can do.

a“If we will go forward with the research work the way will be opened on the right and on the left. You will be astonished to find avenues open. The dead know where their records are, so you are to search until you have gone as far as you can. When you have done all you can do and have reached the limit, what will happen? As always in the past, man’s extremity is God’s opportunity. The Lord never helps us while we can help ourselves. This is our day. We don’t expect Him to do miraculous things that we can do ourselves. When we have done our utmost, then will come God’s opportunity.” — Elder Melvin J. Ballard, “The Inspiration of Temple Work.” The Utah Genealogical and Historical Magazine, Vol. 23, Oct. 1932, pp. 148-149
