View Completed Temple Ordinances with New FamilySearch Update

The new completed ordinances list makes it easier than ever to keep track of the temple ordinances you perform for your ancestors.

Your completed ordinances list shows the most recent 3,000 items of temple ordinances that you reserved and completed in the last 25 months, plus the current month. The list includes both the names you reserved and printed yourself and the names you shared with the temple.

The update provides a more efficient way to store, sort, and refer back to the ordinances you have performed, without using paper to do so.  However, if you a prefer a hard copy, you can also select and print a list of the completed ordinances.

Three Ways to See Your Completed Ordinances List

You can find your completed ordinances list in three ways:

  • On the FamilySearch website, click the Temple tab (viewable only if you are signed in), and select Completed in the drop-down menu.

  • In the Family Tree mobile app, view the completed ordinances list under the Temple tab, found at the bottom of the screen, and then select Completed.

  • View completed ordinances in the temple notifications list. To view temple notifications, click the bell icon in the top right corner of the FamilySearch website, and sort by Temple.

Simplified Temple Notifications

Temple notifications about completed ordinances are also simpler. Instead of naming the person and providing ordinance details in the message, notifications link to your completed ordinances list, where you can see and print details.

Temple notifications about completed ordinances now disappear after 7 days. Even after the notification expires, the completed ordinance information does not. It remains on your completed ordinances list.

  1. Ordinances List
    May I be so blod to ask
    “What in the earth are you talking about?”
    Do I need a Doctorate degree in “Family Search: to understand??

    1. Hi Sara! Thank you for your feedback. You can print this article by either using your browser’s print function or at the top of the blog article you can click on the printer icon and print from there.

  2. Thank you. I so needed this as my memory fails me sometimes and I think I have done some when I really haven’t.

  3. Is there a plan to allow access to all the ordinances you have performed?
    Looks like it only lists 2 years. How would I print the entire list?

    1. Hi Mike! Thank you for your question. The lists is a rolling two years. There isn’t a feature to extend that back. This feature also only shows you the ordinances that were completed for ones that you had reserved. There is no tracking ability to show who actually completed the ordinances.

  4. The reference to “the Family Tree mobile app” gives instructions for iOS. Android users should note that the Temple feature is found in the main menu in upper left corner of the screen.
