I saw that my sister has not been sealed to our parents since 2003, 18 years now. Can I be the substitute to stand in as being sealed to our parents on her behalf?
Because you are a sibling, you will not need to get permission to request the SP for your sister, Da-Thao Thi Chu LCRX-GPV, who has been deceased since 2003. You will, however, need to merge the duplicate record that exists for her before the request button will be activated.
The system shows that Da-Thao Thi Chu LCTZ-W1J is a duplicate record. If you review the LCTZ-W1J record and don't believe it is a duplicate that needs to be merged, you must still mark it as Not a Match. Until all duplicate records are removed either by merging or by marking as Not a Match, you will not be able to reserve the SP for your sister.
If you are not familiar with merging duplicate records, please review the following knowledge article which explains how to merge by ID number
Because this question is related to completing temple work, we will be moving the discussion to the Temple Help Center Category. Please don't be concerned when you see that it appears as Closed in the Other Category after it has been moved. Click the title and you will be directed to the discussion in the Temple Category where you will see it is still open and active.
If you are a female and have a temple recommend, yes, you may.
How do I request ordinances for an ancestor who was born in the last 110 years?
Article Id: 858
April 20, 2020
When you reserve ordinances for your ancestors, you can come across a warning that reads, "Permission Required." This means that the ancestor was born within the last 110 years. Because of this, you must receive permission from a close living relative before you can reserve the name for temple work. Verbal permission is acceptable.
The close living relative can be an undivorced spouse (the spouse to whom the individual was married at death), an adult child, a parent, or a sibling.
If no close living relatives exist to grant permission, you can still request permission to do the ordinances. Please be prepared to provide evidence that no living close relatives exist.
For more information on this topic, please consult the Church’s General Handbook: Serving in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 28.1.
Note: Grandchildren can request the ordinances for their deceased grandparents. They should still get permission from a close living relative. However, they do not have to fill out the permission form.
You cannot request this permission in Family Tree Lite at this time.
You receive an email about your request no matter what the decision is. FamilySearch Support does all they can to reply in a timely manner. Be sure to check your junk mail folder when you look for this email.
