I am trying to take my grandma's name to the temple. They appear orange. Why am I unable to request them?
28 September 1932 – 8 December 2019
Hi, thank you for posting your query in FamilySearch Community. The most likely reason is because the temple has a rule that, if your ancestor (in this case your Grandma) was born within the last 110 years, you either need to be her 'close living relative' or you need to obtain written or verbal permission from a 'close living relative'. A 'close living relative' is defined as an undivorced surviving spouse, an adult child, a living parent (unlikely in your case), or a surviving sibling of your Grandma. If your Mum or Dad is alive I would suggest they would probably be the most appropriate for you. If you can get them to authorise you to do the temple work for your Grandma, you should be good to go.
The following link to a Help Centre article will explain the coloured icons and statuses. There should be a tag on the orange icon that gives further clarification. Right click on the link to open it in a different window.

It appears that your grandparents do not have their marriage date entered in your Family Tree.
If you enter their Marriage date adding a source.
