I or my first cousin would like to request the ordinances of our uncle's wife, Inez D. Cabral, PID LY3W-SPN. She died in 2016. Thing is, our uncle never told anyone in the family who his wife was, only that her name was Inez. He told us she was Catholic and had no interest in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He, however went to the temple whenever he could and was faithful until the end of his life-1997. Just accidentally today I stumbled on her name and birth information in an obituary posted in Memories. I was delighted to finally know and make this info available to the family. As for relatives to give permission for her ordinances to be done, we know of no one. Will it be possible to get permission to do them? Massachusetts is a long way from Utah where many of us live. I am a FamilySearch/Family Tree missionary but didn't know the answer to this. Thank you.

How do I request ordinances for an ancestor who was born in the last 110 years?
Article Id: 858
April 20, 2020
When you reserve ordinances for your ancestors, you can come across a warning that reads, "Permission Required." This means that the ancestor was born within the last 110 years. Because of this, you must receive permission from a close living relative before you can reserve the name for temple work. Verbal permission is acceptable.
The close living relative can be an undivorced spouse (the spouse to whom the individual was married at death), an adult child, a parent, or a sibling.
If no close living relatives exist to grant permission, you can still request permission to do the ordinances. Please be prepared to provide evidence that no living close relatives exist.
For more information on this topic, please consult the Church’s General Handbook: Serving in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 28.1.
Note: Grandchildren can request the ordinances for their deceased grandparents. They should still get permission from a close living relative. However, they do not have to fill out the permission form.
Before you start
- To request permission, you need an email account and a phone number.
- Make sure that the person who gave you permission appears in Family Tree as a close living relative of the deceased person.
- If no close relatives are alive, make sure that Family Tree contains their death information. Attach sources as evidence.
- In Family Tree on the FamilySearch.org website, navigate to the person page of the relative whose ordinances you want to request.
- Sign in to FamilySearch.
- At the top of the page, in the menu bar, click Family Tree.
- From the drop-down menu that appears, click Tree.
- Your family tree appears. Locate the correct relative, and click his or her name.
- A name card appears. Click the relative's name. The new page that appears is the person page.
- Answer the question, "Is the spouse alive?"
- In the Permission Required box, click I Have Permission.
- Click Request (Permission Required).
- On the person page, a series of tabs appears directly below the relative's name. Click Ordinances.
- Fill out the information, and click Submit.
- A message lets you know you submitted the request and provides a case number. Write down this case number in case you need to contact FamilySearch about your request.
Can I do temple ordinances for my aunts, uncles, and cousins?
Article Id: 119
April 20, 2020
You can perform temple ordinances for aunts and uncles to whom you are biologically related. You can also do temple ordinances for their spouses and children. However, you should not do temple ordinances for the spouse’s extended family (parents, siblings, and so forth).
For example, you can do ordinances for your father’s sister (your aunt) and for her husband (your uncle). You can do ordinances for their children (your cousins). You should not do ordinances for your uncle’s extended family (parents, siblings, and so on).
If any of these relatives were born in the last 110 years, please obtain permission from a close living relative first.
When should I obtain permission before performing ordinances for the deceased?
Family Tree says I need permission to reserve ordinances. The 110-year policy does not apply
Hope this helps you. In the help center you will find more articles on this subject.
