Greg and Jennifer Saylin spend an awful lot of time on the computer. As Area Temple and Family History Advisors in Bountiful, Utah, USA, they are very busy training others to find their ancestors’ names online, and then to take those names to the temple.
“Our charge is very clearly to help people have heart-turning family history experiences that will lead to temple work,” said Greg. “Because, of course, family history work and temple work is the same work.”
In their efforts to bring temple work into others’ lives and to help make it personal through family history successes, the Saylins discovered FamilySearch partner site Puzzilla, and immediately recognized the tremendous tool it is in identifying opportunities—that is to say, ancestors—who need attention.
“Puzzilla is such a valuable resource, especially for newbies, those who feel overwhelmed by family history and don’t know where to start, and for those who think their family’s work is finished,” said Jennifer. “We’ve shown Puzzilla to dozens, maybe hundreds of people, and nearly every single time, they’ve got a name in under 90 minutes.”
