Going hand in hand with this increased temple activity is an increase in our family history work. The computer in its various ramifications is accelerating the work, and people are taking advantage of the new techniques being offered to them. How can one escape the conclusion that the Lord is in all of this?Author: Gordon B. Hinckley, Source: “Welcome to Conference,” Ensign, Nov 1999, 4
The first principle is that our efforts to promote temple and family history work should be such as to accomplish the work of the Lord, not to impose guilt on his children. Members of this church have many individual circumstances—age, health, education, place of residence, family responsibilities, financial circumstances, accessibility to sources for individual or library research, and many others. If we encourage members in this work without taking these individual circumstances into account, we may do more to impose guilt than to further the work.Author: Dallin H.

Our grandparents watch—and wait—for us to identify them, be linked to them, and provide temple ordinances for them.Author: Elder Russell M. Nelson, Source: Ensign, May 1998, 36
