Putting Names in Family Group that have been shared by others with the temple.
I come across names in my family research that someone else has shared with the temple. I can reserve them, but Family Search will not allow me to place them in my Family Group so that family members can assist in getting the temple work done.
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Just in passing ...
GREAT suggested enhancement.
'YES'; 'Yes'; 'yes' ...
You are not alone ...
This, a MUCH, desired; and, requested, enhancement, since the recent implementation, of "Family Groups" ...
[ By, MANY; Many; many ... ]
As of yet, there has been no advice, from 'FamilySearch', on whether or not, such is even being considered ...
Here, is a recent post, of just x4 Days ago, on the matter ...
'Category' = Suggest an Idea

Family Group App
As I responded in that post ...
Personally, I think and believe, that we SHOULD, be able to "Share", ANY "Temple" Work, that has been "Share[d] with the Temple System", WITH a "Family Group", if we so desire.
As, I would humbly suggest, that in some (in fact, MANY) of such cases, that "Temple" Work MAY possibly; even, get done, MUCH "Quicker", than through the "Temple System".
In any event; UNTIL, a member of a "Family Group", in which that "Temple" Work is "Shared", actually "Reserves" the Work, such Work would REMAIN in the "Temple System"; and, STILL be available for either, ANY User/Patron; and/or, ANY "Temple", to do (ie. "Reserve"; and, be responsible for).
I actually 'see', the BENEFIT, of this suggested enhancement.
In fact ...
I actually 'see' GREAT "Benefit', in the suggested enhancement; especially, as such, would more than likely, 'Hasten" this "Very" IMPORTANT Work.
As such ...
IF, 'FamilySearch' is not "Already" considering (or, implementing) such; THEN, ...
I TRULY hope, that 'FamilySearch', SERIOUSLY considers; and, of course, eventually, IMPLEMENTS this suggested enhancement.
GREAT suggested enhancement.
I hope, that this may help give your suggested enhancement support.
ps: You certainly got my "Up" Vote.
I have been doing extensive descendance research of all my family lines, but because of the 300 name restriction on reservation I was not able to reserve all the names I found. Then someone had the bright idea (NOT) to go down all their lines and reserve the names for the temple. They were like 12th cousins and very remote to family that are very close to me. I have set up a family group with all my siblings, children, nieces and nephews to try and get the work done more quickly. I'm finding I can't reserve and share with my family group names shared with the temple. I can't even reserve and share my 1st cousin 3 times removed because someone who is a 12th cousin came way over to my side of the tree and reserved all my close family names with the temple. This is so frustrating!!!
People, I understand that you feel that sharing names with the temple is a great idea, but you really are making it hard for others to do the work. If you want to share names with the temple just stick to close relatives within 3rd cousin range. Thank you.0
Sorry to hear about how things went. In the future keep in mind that there is no limit to your temple-shared list and any close relative you find you can reserve and share them to the temple as long as your personal list is less than 300. For example, if you keep your personal list empty except for about 200 names all shared with the family group, that gives you plenty of room to reserve ordinances and share to the temple. Then as your family group needs replenishing, you can un-share from the temple and share with the group.
Since you have organized a family group, another thing you can do is copy some of the ID numbers and send them as a group message. Since the ordinances have been shared with the temple, any relative can take them as a 90-day ordinance and complete them.
Also keep in mind that as your family group gets low on certain types of ordinances, since those other names are shared with the temple Ordinances Ready will find them and give them to your family to complete.0
I do most of the research and since there are too many names for me to do alone, my family does most of the temple ordnances. We have many relatives that could have their ordnances performed by family members if I were able to share the "previously shared" individuals to our group. I hope this limitation will soon be removed.0
