Everyone wants to belong, to feel connected to something bigger than themselves. The Family Nexus app helps people make discoveries about their personal heritage! The Family Nexus mobile app integrates with a user's FamilySearch account to automatically plot life events of your relatives on an interactive Google Map. By bringing genealogy to your fingertips in a familiar format like Google Maps it allows you to make surprising discoveries about your family.

The Family Nexus mobile app lets you instantly see all family life events that took place in a particular area, or you can search for a specific individual. Tap a map pin to learn more about the events in your family history that took place at that location.

In addition, the app alerts you when you are near an event that took place in your family history, or on the anniversary of an event of an ancestor.

Unlock Premium Features by becoming a subscriber! Download additional ancestors (beyond the 6 generations allowed in the free version), see people in the context of their family group, access photos and stories, customize your map experience with filter controls and much more!

You will learn more about your ancestors and the events that shaped their lives. Plus, share your discoveries with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter and increase your bond with family members living and dead!

I just downloaded this app onto my iPad and saw nothing but my name and location, Exploring to see what was offered only showed that I needed to subscribe no matter what I clicked on. Yjat was no fun. When I clicked on manage subscription I was kicked out of the app every time. Sounded good but was disappointed with the no-in-app purchase. Too much trouble. MEC

Developer Response

Please contact us at with any trouble you are experiencing. This app requires that you have data in FamilySearch. Regarding the crash in V 1.2 that has been fixed. I recommend you upgrade and ensure you have data in your FamilySearch family tree!

Amazing family history app


I am an avid genealogist and have used a number of different family history sites and apps. I love how easy this app is to use. It automatically downloads your FamilySearch family tree and plots events on the map. Other websites just show birthplaces, but this app shows birth, marriage, death, and burial locations.

I love the alerts and the premium features are really awesome. I hope the developers keep working on this app and adding even more features!

Awesome way to connect family history with places and time


This app has ignited a renewed interest in family history. It has made it much much easier to put it into context for both place and time. I love the event alerts. It's really cool when I happen to be near a place and get an alert that one of my ancestors had been there too! Thanks to this app, I found out that I have a great grandfather who fought in the Revolutionary War. Way cool!
