In Knowledge Article id titled: : "Can I request proxy temple ordinances for a friend?" it states the following:
The First Presidency stated in a letter dated on February 29, 2012: "Our preeminent obligation is to seek out and identify our own ancestors.
Those whose names are submitted for proxy temple ordinances should be related to the submitter.
My question is what does the First Presidency mean by "should be related to the submitter" because technically I am related to everyone in Family Tree?
Example: Victor H. Anderson G4ZG-T51 is my paternal Grandfathers brother-n-law. His ordinances have been reserved by my 9th cousin on my mothers side.
Is this situation in compliance with the First Presidencies direction? My opinion would be no. If this was an infrequent occurrence I would chalk it up as an
honest mistake but I encounter this more often than not.
