  • Family Name Cards

    Ordinances for family names must be done in proper sequence. If you wish to complete an endowment for a family name, allow sufficient time to complete the initiatory ordinances before the endowment session. If you are going to do the baptism the same day, you will need to allow even more time.

    Although family name cards are welcome at any time, many temples have reserved times for family names. Please call the temple for an appointment.

    Learn how to prepare family names for the temple.
