How can I get someone to unreserve or share the SP of my great great grandmother?
Frances Fanny Weigh Ltth Lpb is my g g grandmother. I completed her endowment in Feb 22 2022 in the London Temple and would like to get her sealed to her parents on my next visit in April. However, this ordinance has been reserved since 2017 and recently the reservation was extended to 2025. I have had no reply to e mails sent to the person reserving this ordinance, is there any way that family search can mediate to allow me to continue this work for my direct line ancestor please? Thank you for your help.
Your question has been forwarded to a specialty team for review and resolution. You may be contacted by that team if they need to gather more information.0
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Just in passing ...
Just for future reference ...
Here is a "Knowledge Article", in 'FamilySearch':
Someone has reserved an ordinance that I want to do
Where, it states, among other things:
What to do if the person doesn't respond
If you are unable to contact the other person, if he or she does not respond, or if he or she chooses not to release the ordinances, keep these things in mind:
- Church members have 2 years to complete ordinances for family names they request in Family Tree.
- When the 2-year reservation date expires and no progress has been made on the ordinances, the family names are automatically released.
And, of course; as, you are most probably well aware, that the "Period" of a "Reservation", ALSO includes, the 'Ongoing' "Extension", of "Reservations", due to the "COVID-19" Pandemic.
That Said ...
"Technically", there is NOTHING one can do ...
IF, there is NO response, from trying, to contact, the User/Patron, with the "Reservation"; THEN, 'FamilySearch', CAN try, to make direct contact, with the the User/Patron; and, failing any such contact, sometimes 'FamilySearch' will make investigations; as, to whether or not, the User/Patron may have passed away; and, such is NOT recorded, on their "Church Membership" Record, of the User/Patron - it happens.
In this particular case ...
I know, that this certainly may not specifically help/assist, in this case; but, I hope, that this may provide you with, some additional, insight; and, perspective.
ps: Sometime, there is a 'Happy Ending'; and, 'FamilySearch' can be of help/assistance, as a mediator.
