Delta Joy Barker Bement said: When we try to reserve temple work for an individual born within the past 110, in the notice reminding that we can only do it if we're the nearest living relative or have permission from the nearest living relative, it would be helpful to include the name and contact information of the nearest living relative according to Family Search if there is someone who is closer in relation than ourselves (maybe it can be like a consent given "Do you want to be contacted as a nearest living relative of someone?", or something. And if there's no one in the system closer than you, then it can say that. Not that that FOR SURE means there's no one closer, but it's helpful.
I was wondering if there is, or could be a way for FamilySearch to automatically notify someone trying to reserve temple work that there is a living relative of closer relation listed on FamilySearch? That way they would at least know there is someone with a closer relationships than their own whose permission they would need to seek before continuing.0
