Take a Name LDS Family History App

Take a Name is a family history app for LDS Church members who want to take their own family names to the temple. It requires a FamilySearch account with access to LDS ordinances. • Find temple ready ancestors—Take a Name searches the FamilySearch tree for your deceased ancestors and double checks that LDS ordinances are ready for the temple. • Request LDS ordinances and print temple cards – from your phone! • Try before you buy, pick your price—Try Take a Name for free! Purchase the app when you're ready via in-app purchase. • Less time searching, more time serving—Take a Name typically delivers dozens of temple ready family names in a matter of minutes. It’s genealogy, but easier! • FamilySearch Certified—Kinpoint is a FamilySearch partner, authorized to submit names for temple work. • Data integrity—Take a Name performs a detailed set of data checks to provide confidence that an LDS ordinance is temple ready. It also excludes names of ancestors with unresolved duplicates. Take a Name does far more than simply scraping the FamilySearch website for green temples! Spend time in the temple with your ancestors instead of outside trying to find them. Genealogy has never been so satisfying!

  • #youhadonejob 5/5

    By allenjandrew
    When Take a Name searches 24,021 names and only finds the 135 ordinances you already reserved... Lol I like this app. I would never have found the like 50 names I did without it - that would have been years of digging. Saved me so much effort.
  • AWESOME 5/5

    By Olsenj10
    This makes things so much easier.
  • No more drudgery... 5/5

    By JimMinMesa
    This app crawls your family search tree and finds all persons that need LDS temple ordinance. What would have taken hours is completed in minutes.
  • Best of its kind 5/5

    By MarathonMills
    This app has been incredible. I showed everyone in my family history class this app and it really sparked a desire to take family history work to the temple simply because it is so easy to use! My favorite feature is how I can reserve temple work within this app which will then automatically transfer over to my FamilySearch account. This app blows programs like Puzzilla and Hope Chest out of the water! The problem is that these software programs are expensive and/or have an interface that aren't user friendly.

    Really fantastic! Shows relationship and filters out work that has already been done! I love it!
  • Thousands of hours of work done in a few minutes! 5/5

    By Stevohio
    Wow. Great app. Works so fast. I’ve seen it find ancestors for people who were absolutely sure all their family work was done. Searches tens of thousands of names and finds what you are looking for. Try it. It works.
  • The Missing Link 5/5

    By clw03
    This App is truly the missing link between Temple Work and Genaeology. Take a Name streamlines hours of manual searching work into one neat, easy search that runs in the background! My only suggestion for improvement would be to allow for more than 100 search results - perhaps as a paid subscription? My queue is currently full as I do ordinance work that is time consuming, but I could be doing other precursory work in the meantime and would pay a monthly fee to have more or more filtered search results. Thanks for developing such an incredible tool!!
  • Finds names truly temple ready 5/5

    By Wspb 2day
    This app is a godsend (literally: sent to us from God!), if you want to take a family name to the temple! Before I go to the temple, I open this app, which finds me a temple ready name from my family. I hit print, stop by the printer to pick up my name slip on my way out the door, & then my temple experience is for someone in my own family tree! There is no other fam hx app that does this. Others may find names of ppl who need work done, but not Family Search certified, temple ready names. You'll love it!
  • Incredible app! 5/5

    By benjaminwilliam77
    Where I'd felt apprehensive to begin family history, this app makes it so easy. The app does all of the work for you. Takes less than a minute to enter your login credentials and perform a search, and the app generated over 20 names and ordinances and outlined how I was related to the individuals. Very satisfying.
  • Simple tool 5/5

    By gpmeder
    Great stuff
  • Awesome! 5/5

    By Penny Crime--TALENNY4EVA
    I found 20 names I didn't know existed! My only problem is, I wish you could do more than 20 names at a time. This app is super easy to use but it does take all day to find 20(at least for me). You can put filters on what you want it to search for and everything. Wonderful app!
  • Fabulous! 5/5

    By GAMSY2016
    What a great idea! We love it so far.
  • Awesome App!!! 5/5

    By Pretty darn awesome app
    My line has had a lot of work done. So it takes some doing to find ordinances that need to be done. Take a Name searched through 82000 records and found around 37 ordinances. An extra bonus, working on the names found by Take a Name must have alerted Family Searches algorithms to new connections for my line because right after working on the names, family search emailed me a new name as well. I've been working with a family history missionary to make sure the names are not just duplicate records. While some were, many are legit names I can take to the temple. Well worth a try!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Geometry Jragon
    This app is awesome
  • Where have you been all my life "take a name"? 5/5

    By ETG2
    I'm so excited to have this app at my finger tips to get names last minute when needed. Either going to the temple with my wife on ward temple night or doing baptisms with my son and young men. Love it!!!!
  • Great app! 5/5

    By sclaybrook
    This app is super easy to use! It's such a great concept. Within a few minutes it had found several names with multiple ordinances to be done. I would definitely recommend this app to everyone interested in taking names to the temple!
  • You can take family names now! 5/5

    By 2KGamerForLife
    Painless solution to an all-too-common problem. I thought all my family's ordinances were done, but Take A Name searches TENS OF THOUSANDS of your ancestors (surprisingly quickly) and dig up ordinances that it would take you years to find. DOWNLOAD NOW.
  • Easy to use!!! 5/5

    By VenessaP
    I love this app! I found 21 ancestors needing temple work done in 10 minutes. It is efficient and easy to use for those who may not be completely tech savvy.
  • Great app 5/5

    By 3200runner262
    This app found dozens of names that I had missed.
  • Modern Family History 5/5

    By Drewbiedoobie58375
    I was using the app and the interface is so easy to navigate and I have such an easy time doing so. I mean, I'm laying on a couch in the middle of the Rocky Mountains on vacation and I can say I did family history thanks to this app. My favorite part is the internal Google Map where you can see where each ancestor is from and how they are related to you. I loved seeing all my ancestors from Norway and Germany. It was quite an experience and I'm very excited to get these names done. I am a college student and I couldn't be happier with an app that helped me in my family history.
  • Amazing App 5/5

    By Wesee135sites
    I am completely amazed by this app! It did an extensive search of over 80,000 records and found a number of ancestors who still needed ordinances done. It linked easily with Family Tree and reserving and printing out cards was shockingly easy. I am so excited to finally have some of my own family names to take to the temple!!
  • Love this! 5/5

    By Kargar44
    Take a Name is super easy to use. If your family search account is open and you are linked to your generations, this app finds the names of ancestors already on your family lines who are missing ordinances for you. "All of my family history is done" so it's hard to sift through the many ancestral lines to find someone to do work for. This does the hard part of searching! I do a bit of research to make sure the names it finds are accurate and not duplicates or otherwise erroneous. Super easy to reserve the name cards. Also a good tool to see when someone else has added family names to your tree so you can find sources and do additional research. Love this app!

    I love the app it is really good
  • Works good but some issues 4/5

    By JeffPhx
    Great app but does not seem to be working 100%. The issue I am having is when I start a new search I select that I want to search for "female", "baptisms & confirmations" and "20 names". When the search is complete I end up with 100 names which are a mix of male and female names, none of whom need baptisms. I am using iPhone 7 if that helps. I tried it after updating the app on 7/14/17 and still have the same issue. Thank you.
  • So Helpful 5/5

    By IIAlexandraRoseII
    I've been told for the longest time that all of my families work was done! It took probably 45minutes for the app so search 6,000 names and find 20 I can take to the temple! So grateful and lucky to have found this app I would not have the patience to search 6,000 names!
  • Hard sell for donations are annoying 3/5

    By cybercow
    Good service but the hard sell is very annoying. If they were transparent about their costs and how much money was rolling in, or if they didn't push so hard, it wouldn't bother me as much.
  • This app is a blessing! 5/5

    By Jbrink4e
    I'm so grateful for this app! It makes finding names for the temple so easy. I can finally easily find names to take to the temple and make the ordinances feel that much more special!
  • Best family history app yet 5/5

    By Smileykylie321
    It takes seconds to start and searches thousands of names! What a blessing it is to have found this app it's technology at its finest. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone involved in it.
  • Wow! What an Incredible App! 5/5

    By Fitzylady
    So glad to find out about this app. I have found no family names for temple work previously. This app found them for me while I was doing other things! I was easily able to reserve the names and there is a simple way to print the names. Much thanks to the developers!
  • Great App for Basic Searches 5/5

    By Badchessplayer
    This is great for finding names. The one thing it doesn't do is vet the names. It found several names that just needed the endowment, but the sealing to the spouse had somehow already been done, clearly an issue. But it also found several names that actually needed ordinances for sure. Overall, easy set-up, simple function, quick, and easy, even on a Sunday.
  • Awesome! 5/5

    By Tedge1234
    This is a great app to find family members that need their ordinances done. It was easy to set up and easy to navigate.
  • Fast and easy 5/5

    By BYUbrigham
    I don't review apps. Like ever. This has made the hardest part of taking family names to the temple... going to the temple. After I got a bunch of names, I logged in under my wife and she got a load of names from her side too. No family trees on this app, just hunting down people that need work done. Get it and use it.
  • Best app ever!! 5/5

    By Blake 1909
    A must have for all LDS families
  • Very Cool! 5/5

    By oneofthe2000
    I have long felt I needed to get involved with researching my ancestors. This app has truly helped give me the motivation to get started and commit myself to this project. I urge all to "purchase"(donate to) the app. I can only imagine how taxing this app must be on its servers. So if people can donate they can increase bandwidth and speed up the app. Overall though great work!
  • Works great! 5/5

    By GeneZero
    I always thought my grandfather had done all our names, this app found dozens for me to do. I am not an expert and wouldn't have found these names by myself.
  • Love ❤️ ❤️❤️ 5/5

    By David A Stone
    So easy, just know your username and password, click go!
  • Truly an amazing time saver. 5/5

    By Cinderellie Ellie
    I got pretty involved in family history a couple of years ago, but after floundering through Norwegian records from the 1600s for several months I felt lost and discouraged and eventually quit. When someone recommended this app to me I was skeptical of finding any names, but I tried it. It took several hours and 20,000 records, but it found 5 people who need ordinances--and perhaps more importantly, it got me excited about family history again. Now, when I get stumped in one branch it can show me holes in other places--in addition to saving me the weeks or months of manually combing my family tree. Thank you to the developers for creating such a useful and time saving tool for family history!
  • Must have app! 5/5

    By Geysser
    This saves hundreds of man hours…that's if you know what you are doing. My wife was flabbergasted. It is well worth a donation!
  • Amazing, Easy to Use 5/5

    By disneylemon13
    I've wasted my life trying to find names to bring to the temple on family search. So once I tried the app, I found names reserved them, and printed them out, all within 30 minutes! Hallelujah!!!
  • Simple, powerful, and indispensable 5/5

    By Travis2189
    Take A Name searches FamilySearch for your ancestors with incomplete ordinance work. Tap a name; tap to reserve; tap "print" to print name cards. Boom. Done. Almost too easy. I come from long LDS lines and had never done ordinance work for my own ancestors because I couldn't find any available. In seconds, Take A Name found my 8th great-grandfather, born in 1660, and today I began his work. Take A Name really shouldn't be an app. It should be a feature of FamilySearch. But since FamilySearch doesn't do that, Take A Name fills the gap and provides essential functionality.
  • Never before so easy 5/5

    By Antaerak
    This app is a perfect example of technology making finding temple names easy. Phenomenal.
  • AWESOME 5/5

    By bnewby1
    Such a neat app, I have spent hours searching for names at the family history center. This app does all the work for you.
  • Awesome app!! 5/5

    By Lionhouse92
    Everyone needs this app!! All your excuses for not taking names to the temple will fly out the window. This makes it so easy!! No more guilt in not doing the work for your ancestors!!!
  • This App 5/5

    By claytondb
    This is what FamilySearch is missing - an easy way to find names to take to the temple, and being able to say you only want to find people who are missing certain ordinances is a great feature. They really nailed the workflow.
  • Whoa! Thank you! 5/5

    By jrwagz
    You guys really nailed this app! It's perfect and efficient! I'm very happy to pay a few bucks to support your development and server costs, keep up the awesome work!
  • Great App. The easiest way to find names for the temple! 5/5

    By Brain Clay
    I'm a stake temple and family history worker and am familiar with many apps and tools for finding names for the temple. This is the best. Everyone with a full or partial tree can now bring their own family names to the temple. If you are LDS, get this app.

    By Kennasvea
    I've spent hours in the past trying to find family names and have never been able to find anything. In just a few minutes this app found plenty of ordinances for me to do. I'm stoked to finally be able to do family names at the temple!
  • Great app! 5/5

    By MAlpine
    This has been really useful and has made searching for names so much easier, even exciting.
  • Outstanding, useful, well-designed 5/5

    By joseph644
    I'm surprised someone hasn't solved this problem before. The app is easy to use and finding names is now a very quick process. I really respect that they let you pick your price to buy after you try it out (and they even let you unlock it for free if you check "I Really Can't Afford It."
  • Great app 5/5

    By Evangchr
    Great app! Totally better than anything else on the market right now. I got to meet one of the developers at rootstech and they're really great people.
