When I am looking for records on FamilySearch, I have a hard time logging off and doing other things. It’s so fun and there’s so much information.
Was a great app Can't use it. 2/5
Requires IOS 10 and above. Not everyone can afford a new iPhone or iPad. Evidentially the developers have that kind of funds.
This leaves a lot if individuals left out that would like to do the work for their families.
The LDS website will not work with the Safari browse on our newest iPad that is only 3 years old.
Family Tree errors 4/5
I would like an easier way, or way to change errors on my family tree..Some information by myself or another member put in wrong information and I can’t seem to find a way to delete the names.
Annoyed that I can’t view the tree in landscape view. :/ my father’s 17 aunts and uncles don’t fit in screen. 🙄🤓
Great feeling of who I am, I am able to see and then connect eternal bonds with those men and women who have given me life within the Holy Covenant for eternity
AMAZING APP!! 5/5
Definitely recommend this app. Just enter in your first few generations and it will go by itself.

This is like knowing you're family

Total BS, ZERO if you don’t create an account 1/5
By Bonito apps
I downloaded this because it mentioned you could do a search without creating an account. I put in multiple family names, deceased and alive, nothing complicated. These names are found easily on the Internet on other sites. This app however couldn’t find any of them. Just based on the etiology of what the name sounded like, it told me this last name is most likely found in (insert Hispanic countries here), showing me little shapes of countries, and we’re not even Hispanic! So, it generalized where it thinks my family may be from even though not one of them is from there ever, everyone I searched for was born and bred in the US, forcing you now to create an account to look further. Total garbage.
Great App 5/5
Such an amazing app!
User friendly networking tool 5/5
I quite enjoy this app. My favorite feature is the “relatives around me” because it can help facilitate positive bonding experiences with friends.
My 99 Year-Old Father loves it! 5/5
I’ve been giving care for my Dad and he just turned 99. He can’t believe the technology and asks me daily to find out information for him. He says, “Will you look on that “Tree” and look up a name and information for me. For me I love “Find Relatives Near Me”. It encourages me to find out more and more about “Our Family” and those around me.
I have learned more about my heritage and my ancestors and I can see more people on my parents sides and yeah I love this app
It’s a great app and works pretty great but there seems to be a bug when you get to far up the tree. My entire app froze and when reloaded all information was gone.
The best! 5/5

Thank you so much to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for this website. I have been able to trace my ancestors all the way back to Adam and Eve!
I love this App 5/5

Fantastic App 5/5
This app is great because I can do research wherever I am.
Great search site! 5/5
By Texas Cheek
Great site for locating records and ancestors!
Excellent source for historical documents 5/5
Great tool for documenting my family history. Very collaborative and interactive. Love the family document suggestions!
Excellent app 5/5
This free app is incredible! I love finding relatives among my friends from the relatives around me section
Poor concept and design 1/5
Accesses a genealogical pedigree edited as a wiki. Due to the nature of the system, that means that good documented data can be, and frequently is, replaced by unsourced junk, with usually no option to recover lost info, despite assertions to the contrary. This is an iOS app, but you would think it's never been tested on iOS. Copy an ID number? You can't; the text won't copy. Add a child by ID number? You just get a blank rectangle with no edit options. The photo viewer is very disappointing. Even if good resolution photos are uploaded, they look very poor. Navigation is cryptic, sometimes more challenging than a mobile game.
Love it! 5/5
I love the app because when I visit family I just can go to my app and add information!!!!!
This app allows me to connect with my family in ways that I never have before.
It’s very good for everyone
Thank you 5/5

I find it fun to see how I am connected to people around me.
David W. Bascom 5/5
Love family work. This site will help hasten the way for our children.
Continual improvements 5/5
Family Search is an amazing nap. Our ability to do genealogical research it and keep our records neat and complete and permanent is so much better than it was just a few years ago. I look back on how I used to do my genealogy work and it is simply amazing how much faster and better I can do it now. This app is such an exciting tool and I am grateful for it.
Mind blowing 5/5
I have been able to map my family tree back to the American colonies thanks to this app! It’s been such a fun thing to explore with family!

Bam pow whap
I have Mac Family Tree Maker, I thought this would be comparable. It has, unilaterally, put an unknown person on my tree as an ancestor (4 years older than his son) and I can find no way to correct it. I’ll edit this review if Support will load my actual Tree, but until then I will find this Useless.
By Gramma Goller
Adding photos is tedious. Would be more customer friendly to be more like Ancestry.com.
Great fun! 5/5
I love learning about my ancestors and where they all came from. The stories that come with some of them are amazing!! This is my favorite thing to do!
Upgrades are great! 5/5
I love using the FamilySearch App. It is intuitive and helpful. I find it easy to use and now prefer it to using my computer.
Wonderful way to spend my time! 5/5
This is such a smooth app, and so easy to navigate. This is a perfect way to spend my time scrolling through pictures and memories of my ancestors instead of Facebook or Instagram!
App Functionality 5/5
This app is great! Haven’t run into any problems!
Family Tree 5/5
By Ole Man
A fantastic app!
no family records 1/5
didnt have any info of anyone on either side of my family
Love this site except 4/5
I do not like that anybody can change my genealogy most everything else I like about this site
This site was very helpful in finding names close to my direct line. It made it possible for me to find names for my granddaughter to take to the temple. I will help her learn to do it herself.
Love this App 5/5
I have loved loved loved learning about my ancestors. I feel such a strong connection with them and wish I could have known them in person. I can’t wait for the next life to meet them and to know them! :)
Look no further. Taking a break from Ancestry? You’ll enjoy this.
Great app. Improving constantly 5/5
It’s great for researching on the go

So easy to find my ancestors. Don’t miss the good old days of microfilm rolls.
Family Search 5/5
Really enjoy using the Family search program, and reading stories about ancestors. It reminds me of how small the world really is and how we’re all connected!
Love phone access 5/5
By Laura Dee in AZ
I love having the FamilySearch app on my phone as an easier way to add a photo to a profile that I’ve snagged from a relative on Facebook, check information for relatives, or being able to check on ordinance information before heading to the temple.
