The Ordinances Ready process is a wonderful help. It just needs to be presented a bit more personally. We should not be thinking of "taking names to the temple." We are gathering names of real people who are very much alive, and desiring to be freed from spirit prison, thus allowing them full membership privileges and the ability to hold leadership and teaching callings for the benefit of the billions of people still in spirit prison who also need and often want membership for themselves. By properly performing ordinances for those that really are our ancestors, we are blessing them with the same blessings we have as members in the same Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and continue the work of the gathering on that side of the veil as well. We are not doing ordinances for "names" - we owe it to them to be thinking of them personally as we go about this work. And we also have a responsibility to verify that they really are in the proper relationship place on the Family Tree before we perform their sacred ordinances.
