From the 100-year history, “Among her many accomplishments, while serving as family genealogist, was the enormous task of completing, for temple work, thousands of names contained in six large moveable files. These files were a collection of family group sheets that evolved from every conceivable source over a period of seventy years. She made several master indexes with cross references so that when the names were separated from the family group sheets, as they were typed onto temple cards and after the ordinance work was done, and the cards returned to her, she then was able to find the individual names and record the data on the original family group sheet. This process ensured that no deceased person was missed.”
