As I understand it, the LDS believe that if they baptize their ancestors,
they will all be reunited in heaven. (They don't baptize all the dead in their
records, only those they can prove they are related to.) It's this belief that
motivates much of their genealogy efforts, but genealogists who don't believe
this still benefit from those efforts every time they use FHC films.
