Temple shared names - others tying up names so I can not unshare and do ordinances
When I do research, I share with the temple and when my siblings and I can do temple work, I pull names out and print them. We do from 4 to 12 endowments a month, besides baptisms, sealings, etc so are actively working on getting the ordinances done
Now for the problem. Several people have gone into my list and secondarily reserved the temple shared names for themselves. Many have gone undone for as long as this is an option. I write to them asking them to release the name so I can do the work. I hear back on very few of my requests - therefore the name just sits there frozen.
PLEASE make it possible for the person that shared the name with the temple to pull it out and print the card and do the temple work. I spent years doing the research and now am being hobbled at doing the temple work by others just adding names to their lists. I would't mind at all if they were actually doing the temple work but nearly all my names are tied up and none are getting done. I do not have hundreds/thousands of names either - mainly just those direct line ancestors.
ALSO - I can not un-reserve names that others have tied up. They are glued to my list! My husband has recently passed away - I have some male help to do temple work, but not as much as before. I would like to release (un-reserve) some of the excess male names so that others can pick them up and do the work. While someone else is piggybacked on the name - I am prevented from doing this
I feel like I have lost complete control over my list and all the time and effort I have put into the research. I feel very frustrated and helpless with this - and it is not the feeling one should have in participating with doing temple work.
