I am so glad that these people can now be 'found' by family members. I can imagine how exciting it would be to find your ancestors especially with them being slaves. I was in the Temple years ago when one man was doing his families Temple work. They had been slaves and the spirit was so wonderful. It just made me feel so happy for them. That is great it gave inmates something hard but positive to do. A huge labor of love by many.

Wonderful article and it is great to see the work of the Lord moving forward. Yes, this is not about names and dates, this is families and individuals and knowing they made a difference in someone's life. Even years after they have gone.
