To keep up with all the names that needed temple ordinances from the efforts of Genevieve and others, in 1981, the Thomas Tolman Family Organization established a family file at both the Ogden and Salt Lake Temples. At this time, the Church allowed families to set up a family file at the temple where relatives could pick up a temple card for one of their ancestors and perform temple ordinances. By 1994, there was a Tolman Family File in 18 temples and a cousin assigned to be custodian of the family file for each temple. Today, you can reserve names in FamilySearch and print out the temple ordinance cards at home. You can also share names with other family member or you can share them with the temples worldwide.
