When someone goes to the temple with their family to be sealed while living do they need to take a completed family group sheet with all the details of the family to have it marked and put in the archives?
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Just in passing ...
A couple of things ...
[ 1 ] Speak with your Bishop/Branch President
In the first instance, you NEED to speak, to your Bishop/Branch President.
As, you will NEED a "Recommend for Living Ordinances", which is in addition to a NORMAL "Temple Recommend"
[ For, you; and, the Family members involved/taking part ... ]
Your Bishop/Branch President, should be able to provide you, will ALL, the information, that you need.
[ 2 ] Make an "Appointment" for "Living Ordinances" with the "Temple"
Contact the "Temple"; where, the "Living Ordinances", are to be performed.
The Staff, at the "Temple", WILL advise you, EVERYTHING, that you WILL need to take along.
And, of course, make a "Appointment", for the 'Date' and 'Time'.
[ 3 ] Emotionally and Spiritually prepare yourself and the Family members involved/taking part
[ 4 ] Enjoy the Moment
That Said ...
For reading ...
PRIOR to you Visit to the "Temple" ...
In the "Gospel Library" of the Church ...
[ Either, 'On-Line'; or, "Hard-Copy" ... ]

I hope, that this may help/assist, somewhat.
If you are being sealed to living people, all you need is your temple recommend and a living ordinance recommend. The ordinances are then recorded on your Church Membership record. Later after your death, these ordinances will show up in the FamilySearch Family Tree.
This is for a family with 2 children. Do they need to bring a family group sheet with the children listed along with themselves as parents when they do the family sealing together?
