The generations on either side of me link me to my past and my future. My view of family history involves revealing the roots and the branches.

Throughout this blog you will find perspectives related to the doctrines of temple and family history work from revealed revelation given to living prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS - Mormon).

Our Family Names Are All Done

“I have heard some members say, “But our family names are all done.” It is all right to say such a thing as long as you realize you are only kidding

"Of this, Elder W. Grant Bangerter has said: 
Your genealogy has not all been done. My own grandparents performed ‘all’ the temple work for their deceased relatives fifty-five years ago. Since that time our family has discovered sixteen thousand others.” - “What Temples Are For,” Ensign, May 1982, p. 71. 
– George D. Durrant, “Genealogy and Temple Work: ‘You Can’t Have One without the Other’”, 
Ensign, August 1983.


  1. That's so funny: as long as you realize you are only kidding!

  2. It is true -- genealogy is never done!
