“Family Tree App: Ordinances Ready,” New Era, Jan. 2019, 44.
Doing temple work for your ancestors is a great way to bring your family history to life. Do you have temple work you can do for your ancestors? Well if you don’t, here’s a really, really easy way to find some family members you can do temple work for. All you need is a phone and an app.
Download the FamilySearch Family Tree App and sign in.
You should be on your home screen.
iPhone Users: Tap the temple icon at the bottom.
Android Users: Tap the menu bar in the upper-left corner. Then tap on Temple.
If you have some ancestors’ work reserved, you’ll see them listed here.
If you don’t have anything reserved, you’ll get some soon.
Either way you should see a green Ordinances Ready button.
Tap on the button and a white box labeled Select Ordinance Type comes up.
From there, pick which ordinance type you want.
Then, magically, a list of ancestors will pop up! All of these people need you to help them by completing ordinances in the temple.
Now you can choose to print cards for your relatives or write down the Family Ordinance Request (FOR) number for each ordinance your ancestor needs to have completed. You can bring either one to the temple.
Really, really easy, right? Have fun at the temple!
