Do Temple Baptism, and Conformation need to be performd for the dead, prior to performing the Initiatory, or can they be performed out of order?
"Vicarious ordinances performed out of sequence are valid, but they become effective only after the prerequisite ordinances are completed."
"The FamilySearch Family Tree website enforces the correct order of individual ordinances: baptism, confirmation, initiatory, and endowment."
"It is preferred that sealings be done after individual ordinances, but it is not required. Family Tree does not enforce the order of sealings for deceased persons. A deceased couple can be sealed before their individual ordinances are done. Likewise, a deceased child can be sealed to deceased parents before the parents are sealed and before the parents’ individual ordinances are done."
"If a sealing ordinance was done out of order, you should simply make sure that the rest of the ordinances get done. You do not need to report the issue to FamilySearch Support. Nor do you need to redo the sealing. The sealing becomes valid after the individual ordinances are done."
Is it possible to find an ordinance date if it is not showing in familysearch ? A friend of mine who has been deceased for a few years does not show a baptism or confirmation date. I Have been told by her sister (Parents are deceased) that she was baptised at 8 yrs old. Her siblings that are also deceased have been baptised.
