dbo:abstract
  • La Société généalogique d'Utah (Genealogical Society of Utah) est un organisme à but non lucratif créé par la Corporation de la Présidence de l'Église de Jésus-Christ des saints des derniers jours et consacré à la recherche généalogique et l'histoire familiale. Les saints des derniers jours considèrent que leur première obligation est d'accomplir, par procuration, les ordonnances du temple pour les membres décédés de leur famille afin de leur permettre de recevoir les bénédictions de l'Évangile. Cette volonté a motivé la définition de la spécification GEDCOM et la recherche d'actes anciens, notamment grâce à la technologie du microfilm. (fr)

Members of the LDS Church believe that tracing family lineage is essential for special religious ceremonies that seal family units together for eternity. According to Mormons, this fulfills a Biblical prophecy stating that the prophet Elijah would return to "turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers."
