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.
Family file patrons are welcome at any time.
Learn how to prepare family names for the temple.
Please contact the temple to schedule a group visit. A visitors' center and a family history center are located adjacent to the temple.
