Next of Kin
My father's second cousin Charles gave me much of my genealogy years ago. Charles and I were close through genealogy work. He himself was born in 1928 and as such falls under the 110 years or next of kin rule. He never married, his parents are long gone, he had only one brother gone also. I would like to get his temple work done but don't know if I am close enough kin without searching for someone - anyone - who might be closer.
