I have had several times when I have a dream, or other impression, that a family member on the other side of the veil is wanting their work done. And by going to familysearch or ancestry.com I am able to find their names and get them ready for temple work. I am usually able to feel their presence guiding me as to what I need to do to find the whole family.
I absolutely have been pinched by the Spirit of Elijah like I never thought it would happen. I was able to provide my very much catholic grandmother with the name of her twin sisters that had passed away way before she was born. (Thank you indexers!). She never knew their names and barely knew of their existence. Through her permission I’ll be able to get them sealed to their parents next week.
If I was born in a hospital in Louisiana in 1945 and do not have a birth certificate even at state levels, my last name must not be what I was raised with. Any suggestions?
