    I love this app!

    I have used this app to research my entire family and a number of friends. I have found birth and death records, copies of personal letters and wills, land deeds, land grants for military service, and, oh, the history I have learned. It’s fascinating to read about your ancestry and realize they actually fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Indian Wars, the Civil War (fighting on both sides of the war); even draft records for WWI AND WWII. Or, that your ancestors lived in Europe during the Black Death, when hundreds of thousand of people died. Or that some ancestors were members of the Order of the Knights of the Fellow-Poor Soldiers of Solomon, known as the Knights Templar! I have ancestors from Ireland, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark , Sweden, Switzerland, Russia, Egypt, Iran, Afghanistan, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Doesn’t that make you think! I have actually made contact with a number of people that actually shares my DNA; cousins 1, 2, 3, even 5 times removed. What a trip! I LOVE THIS APP!

    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!

    We know so much about our family now!

    Family Search has made such a wonderful difference to our family. Before discovering it and learning about where we came from, we had no idea who we were! Now we know about the Cherokee in our family who fled to Wisconsin and created a village, we know about the Revolutionary War soldiers and the French-Indian War soldier and even a soldier in King Philip’s War. I even found ship records, letting me know when our Russians came to America and on which exact ship! The app works great; it is often being improved. My only Request: I like to leave tasks to other relatives as it’s fun to do, and also it takes much time to go through the tasks, so would like if I could also view the task list for my exact line (grandparents, not one mixed with siblings of grandparents).

    Crazy how fast you can learn your ancestry

    My parents and family spent decades doing genealogy, it used to take a lot more time and dedication. This app has helped bring genealogy into the 21st century and made learning personal ancestry an easily accessible, fun thing to do. We were never sure what became of one of my great-uncles (I thought he died young) and now I know everything, thanks to military service records and census records. I feel like it’s really honoring him that we’ve got his story straight. We’ve also been able to actually confirm stories our grandmother told us about life in their small town and we’ve been able to piece it all together, especially through historical phone books available online. I was always told that my greatgrandfather was a blacksmith so seeing his name and occupation in the phone book in the 1930s is incredible. I never even knew that existed. You can really just jump on in, whichever branch of the family needs work done, find out your history, get ready for temple work, attach suggested documents, it’s truly amazing. I’ve updated my review to five stars, my last review I gave three stars because the app kept crashing. That’s been fixed and I really appreciate it.

    Their are Angel's in our Family

    This app is incredible in that I can now do virtually everything from my I-phone. From digitizing documentation in my possession to share with others to searching for ancestors and records, merging duplications, attaching sources and documentation, photos, stories and other information. This app has allowed me to connect with family i didn't know existed. Most important, this app has allowed me the privilege of getting to know my family and ancestors and develop a deep connection and love for them as I learn of and share in their joys and and struggles in this life. Whenever I feel alone, sad or depressed I can just open my family search app and I can feel my family cheering for me and encouraging me to keep going and never give up.
