It was good to see everyone at class today who could attend.
One of the things that we learned today was that you can not do any ones Temple Ordinance work that you are not sure has been decreased for 110 years old. (Sorry, I think I said 120.) In any event, I ran across this article and found it is interesting that she is 115 years old and still getting around! Talk about vitamins and garlic!!

Woman among world's oldest turning
115 years young

INKSTER, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit-area woman, a member of a select group of the living to have been born in the 19th century, is celebrating a birthday on Friday.
Jeralean Talley, who was born May 23, 1899, went fishing last year and still gets around on her own with the help of a walker.
The Inkster resident plans to celebrate with family and friends at a local church on Sunday.
On her actual birthday — Friday — Talley is going to the doctor for a checkup, although she says she doesn't feel sick.
But Talley's knees occasionally hurt, her right hand shakes, she has a hard time hearing and her memory comes and goes.
Her answer as to why she has lived so long hasn't changed over the years.
"It's all in the good Lord's hands," Talley told the Detroit Free Press. "There's nothing I can do about it."
Talley is the oldest-living American and the second-oldest person in the world, according to a list maintained by the Gerontology Research Group, which tracks the world's longest-living people.
The Gerontology Research Group verified Talley's age using census data. Japan resident Misao Okawa, 116, tops the list.
Talley, whose husband died in 1988, is cared for by a 76-year-old daughter who lives with her.
Five generations of the family are living in the area, including a great-great-grandson.

Submitting a person for Temple Ordinances:
So as a recap we discussed today how we are able to submit someone for temple ordinance work. Below are the steps.
(1) First go to your family pedigree and find those family who have a temple by their names with a green arrow.
Notice on the base of each individual profile you will find Temple ordinances which are color coded.
(2) So next we go and click on the Temple symbol and see Requested Ordinances.
When you click on Requested Ordinances you pull everyone in that family that needs ordinances.
And the lower half of the page is.....
From this page we see that the only thing that the parents need are Sealings to be reserved.
But when we look at the children see see (referring back to the color chart) that they need all ordinances done. Also, out to the side by Sealing to Parents you see who the parents are that they would be sealed to.
Now Edmund Pierce Mable can have his ordinances reserved right now. But, when we look at Robert P. Marble, we see (Permission Required). You are probably asking yourself Why??? If you look at the birth date, you will see that he was born in less than 110 years ago. Therefore you would need to ask for permission from the closest family family to do the ordinances....this may be you. If you are not the closest living relative, simply uncheck the box by his name. For this exercise, since I am not the closest living relative, I am going to uncheck Robert P. Marble.
Now click continue.
(3) Church Policy. Every time you do an ordinance, you have read this letter which describes the policy on who you can do ordinances on, and at the bottom check that you have read it and will comply with the guideline.
So I check the box at the bottom and agree to follow the policy. When you check the box the Add to Temple Ordinance List will increase in color. Click on this button if you wnat to proceed.
Next it returns you to your pedigree chart.
(4) Viewing reserved Temple Ordinances. You go to the top right hand side of the screen your see the word Temple with a red star by it, and place you cursers over the word Temple. You will see a pull down menu appear.
(a) View all reserved Temple Ordinances you have.
(b) View those that are not printed yet that need to be printed.
(c) View all those that you have printed, (and may need to print again if you misplaced them.)
(d) Viewed shared ordinance on individuals that you are working on with someone else.
(e) View opportunities to do Temple work, takes you to another site in family search.
We are going to choose to print the not printed persons we have reserved.
When you click on Not Printed, you get...
We see Edmund Pierce Marble at the top and want to check his box.
Now click print. Note that in order to print the ordinance sheet, which contains a bar code, you will need to have a free Adobe Reader installed on your computer. Otherwise, you won't be able to print it off.
Note, that if some reason you lose the printouts, you can take and reprint them by going to the Printed button.
Thanks again for Shirley to allow us to use her family history to demonstrate to us how it works.
When you click print this is what you get.....
Note that the Print button is grayed out, which means I don't have Adobe Reader loaded on my computer. If you did, it would be blue and you could click on it to print it out on your computer. If you can't print this out, contact Julie or Joel and we will be happy to print it out for you.
Hope that helps.
We also discussed what happens if someone reserves the person, and that person who reserved it has died. For those type of questions, click on the help button at the top of the web page and follow the directions. They can communicate via a chat type of setup, via phone, or via email. We will go into more detail on this on a later class.
We also went over some Census records and how to glean information out of them. We will be going into more detail about that in the future.
Well, I really enjoyed having you in the class today. Please let me know what you think about the letter, and what you would like to see more of.
