Family History Work Has Power

"Family history work has the power to do something for the dead. It has equal power to do something to the living. Family history work of Church members has a refining, spiritualizing, tempering influence on those who are engaged in it… Family history work in one sense would justify itself even if one were not successful in clearing names for temple work. The process of searching, the means of going after those names, would be worth all the effort you could invest. The reason: You cannot find names without knowing that they represent people…Our interest turns to our fathers – we seek to find them and to know them and to serve them. In doing so we store up treasures in heaven." President Boyd K. Packard, Ensign Aug 2003
