Larry Richman shares a letter he received from FamilySearch about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' new direction of handling family names at the temple. It explains, in part, that “The Family History page and a few other pages discussed below introduce you to four basic areas of focus as you learn how to teach members. These include the following: 1. Learn the Doctrines of Temple and Family History Work. This webpage provides scriptural citations and quotes from the brethren explaining the basic principles of why members of the church do family history research and temple work. There is also an excellent video titled 'The Turning of Our Hearts' that helps explain what can happen when these principles are applied.
