SLG Church members are encouraged to participate in family history activities. Through these activities we learn about our ancestors so that we can perform ordinances for them. Family history involves three basic steps:

1.  Identify our ancestors.

2.  Find out which ancestors need temple ordinances performed.

3.  Make certain that the ordinances are performed for them.

Most branches have family history consultants who can answer questions and direct us to the resources we need. If a branch does not have a family history consultant, the bishop or branch president can provide direction.
