Modern-day prophets and apostles have continually taught the need for Church members to enable the salvation of the dead by performing temple and family history work on behalf of deceased ancestors.
Elder Quentin L. Cook promised, "As an apostle of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I leave my blessing upon you, with a promise that if you look beyond the bonds of time and mortality, and help those who cannot help themselves, you will blessed with more closeness and joy in your family, and with the divine protections, afforded those who are faithful in His service."
It's easy to get started finding names to take to the temple, but once you get going you may have some questions. Did you know that we have a family history center only ten minutes away in Kaysville? And it's open almost every day of the week! You can visit the family history center where there are several people on-hand to answer all of your questions and help you get started.
I went there with my Beehives a few weeks ago to learn about indexing, and my husband and I made a date-night this week out of our visit to the center. It was a lot of fun! In both cases, the people serving in the center were very knowledgeable, answered all our questions and gave us some great tips to help us work toward finding our ancestors who are waiting to receive their temple ordinances.
The Kaysville Family History Center is located at 201 S 600 E, in Kaysville. The center is on the northeast corner of the building, near the stake offices.
Classes are offered at the center on a regular basis, to help you better learn how to search for your ancestors. For more information about classes, go to kaysvillefhc.blogspot.com.

"The purpose of this Family History Center is to provide an atmosphere where all guests can have a positive, inspirational experience connecting to their ancestors, and to help members feel the Spirit as they gather their families and submit their names for temple ordinances."
President Boyd K. Packer said, "There is a feeling of inspiration attending this work that can be found in no other. When we have done all that we can do, we shall be given the rest. The way will be opened up," (Ensign 1975, p. 99).
