TEMPLES, 1962.

1962:  Temple work for non-kindred approved.  

“During the years 1960-1962 the names submitted to the Genealogical Society fell far below the number needed to keep the temples supplied.  It was during this period that the name extraction program known then as the records tabulation program (R-tab) was begun by the Genealogical Society at the direction of the First Presidency so the needed names could be supplied to keep the temples operating.”  (Family Exaltation and You.  The First Presidency, 1971.  p. 21)
