Many church members are relying on applications like "Hope Chest", "Take a Name", etc to help them "find names to take to the temple". While somewhat helpful in finding those "green temple icons", using these types of programs are also fraught with problems. Realize that Family Tree is filled with duplications and other errors, resulting from decades of multiple and often conflictual data submissions. Just because the application tells you that people are ready to take to the temple, this is NOT so. Countless ordinances have been redone countless times on the many duplicated individuals in Family Tree. It is up to us as church members to validate the accuracy of the "Person" information, remove the duplicates, etc. Besides…would you not want to learn more about that ancestor ("name") that you are going to do temple work for? They are NOT a "name", but a person that actually lived, had their life challenges and successes.
There are much better ways to research or find ancestral names for temple work. If you would like some help, please feel free to contact your ward consultant, or also visit us at the library for help.
