Great app


I highly recommend this app. I have been using FamilySearch for a little over two years, and it's helped me trace my ancestry back over 2400 years. It is easy enough for a middle schooler to work- and I would know, being one! The best feature is the "find match", which allows you to enter the names and birth/death dates and places of deceased relatives and looks for names others have entered that look similar. This helps hugely if a distant relative has also been 'genealogizing' and puts their work on your screen. 80% of the time I've spent on FamilySearch Tree has been reading family history that distant relatives entered that I never knew I had! I experienced some issues when I tried to enter names of relatives in manually while in landscape mode, but after shifting it to Pedigree and entering them there everything worked fine. I love this app!

Wonderfully Useful!


I love that it is searching for documents concerning my ancestors all the time and suggesting them. Then in those moments of free time when I may have previously spent minutes scanning Facebook or Instagram, I can now be attaching documents to my ancestors and search for other documents to better compile my family’s genealogy; our family history!

Being able to see the memories and photographs that others have shared is great too! It’s allowed me to see photos of my grandmother as a youth, something I hadn’t seen before.

There’s a new function under the settings menu called “Map My Ancestors” which creates a map of your ancestors’ life events. Who needs 23andMe or other DNA testing, right? Well, it’s not quite the same, but this is free!

Family Tree

Pokey reader

I am so very excited about the Family Tree App! It was introduced and explained to us in Stake Conference last night. One of the things we did was locate relatives within 100 feet. Many, many names came up, including several people in our Ward! Of course we were distant relatives, but how fun to know of that relationship!! We were also taught how to add pictures which will automatically be shown everywhere that person is listed on family tree. It has SO many great features!
