Member's Responsibilities

Church Handbook of Instructions
1 - [Members] Receive their own Temple ordinances and help immediate family members receive them.
2 - Hold a current Temple Recommend and go to the Temple regularly.
3 - Participate in Family History work.
"Members should identify their own kindred dead, request temple ordinances if needed, and provide these ordinances by proxy if possible. As a beginning, members should try to identify three to five generations of their ancestors...
"In addition to the three basic responsibilities outlined above, members may participate in many other aspects of temple and family history work. The additional work a member does depends on guidance from the Spirit, personal circumstances and abilities, and direction from Church leaders. All members should be engaged in some aspects of temple and family history work throughout their lives."
(Church Handbook of Instructions, Book 2: Priesthood and Auxiliary Leaders [1998], 262-63
