    Ancestors on Facebook

    Finding friends on Facebook is one thing, but what if you could find your ancestors’ profiles? What would they pick for their profile pictures? Which posts would they like? What kind of stories would they tell?

    Facebook isn’t the only place to find names and discover people.

    “There is something powerful in searching out someone who needs temple ordinances, learning who they are, and then being part of their receiving these sacred ordinances,” said Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “This is how you become ‘saviors on Mount Zion.’ There is a joy and satisfaction that is only understood through spiritual feelings.”
