Neato! The LDS Church is putting yet another information resource online. According to this article, members will be able to download scanned copies of their patriarchial blessings. I’ve still got my original paper copy, and I don’t have any ancestors who received blessings of their own, so I don’t need any of the site’s capabilities. Regardless, it’s wonderful to see how well the church is embracing technology to make its stored data and records available to members. This kind of self-service technology is a super-hot topic in the business world already. As with so many other things, smart people trying to do the right thing have adapted it to serving the Lord.
Update: looks like the initial announcement was premature.
