.... Donations are accepted at the door of the Temple. A consistent donation by couples being married, who can afford it, would be the amount of the fee required for a civil ceremony. ...

Paid Work. When proxies have to be obtained to act in endowments for the dead, it is customary to pay 50 cents for a male name and 40 cents for a female name. ...

Heir. The full name of the proper heir is required on every sheet. ... The heir should be determined according to the following rule: "The oldest male in that direct (blood) line to have joined the Church in life." If there is no male in the line, who was baptized in life, then the oldest female to have joined the Church in life in that direct (blood) line may be designated as heir, using her full maiden name. If she has been sealed to her husband, then (and then only), add her married name to her full maiden name. ... In sealing the dead, a woman is to be sealed to her first husband; any exceptions to this rule must be by permission of the Temple Presidency.
