Pacific Island Guide  > Step 10. Submit names to the IGI

A.  Enter the person’s information into Personal Ancestral File (PAF) or a similar
computer program.
This step is necessary because the computer needs to receive the information so our ancestor’s name can appear on the Ordinance Index, which is a computer file. Most LDS Family History Centers have volunteers who can help us with this step.

B.  Learn how to enter ordinance information into TempleReady.
The Temple Ordinance Index and TempleReady software are available at LDS Family History
Centers.
If we are a member of the LDS Church,we can access these on the World Wide Web at
www.familysearch.org. We will need our membership number and date of confirmation to
register. We can get these from our ward clerk.

C.  Decide who will provide proxies
     • If we arrange for or do the work ourselves, it will be handled as Family File, and we will get
cards for each person. We can keep track of these cards ourselves and have friends and family help us complete the ordinances.

     • If we tell the temple to get the proxies, it will be handled as Temple File. This means we lose
control over the names. They may be sent to any temple at any time, and we will not know when or where the work is done until the next edition of the Ordinance Index comes out.

     • In order to arrange to do temple ordinances, we should contact the temple nearest us and ask for
their assistance. It is different in different parts of the world.
      • If we say we will provide proxies by sending names to the Family File, we are responsible to do
the ordinances ourself or make arrangements for friends and family members to help us.

         -If we have limitations of age, health, distance, or lack of friends and family, we can ask the temple personnel to help us.
         -The temples request that we do the ordinances soon after we send them in because space for cards is limited in the temples.

          - If a card has been in the file 2 years, the temple staff will release the names to be done by other people unless we make arrangements with the temple office.

Step 9. Obtain and search other records  <  Previous  |  Next  >  Step 11. Share what you found
