Love Family Search! 5/5
Love this app! I’ve found more family members then I even imagined!
It’s great 4/5
I will give it 5 stars once you can actually attach records to living people the new update says that you can now attach records to living people I went to check this out but no you can not it still says private then says you can not attach records to living people and my app is updated so it is on your end please fix this
They messed up my parents 1/5
By mary ann albin
My parents were married and sealed in the temple. My dad was married before divorced then married my mom. Why is this all messed up. I tried to correct my brother mother and it erased all my info. It’s very frustrating
Love the research, hate the freezes and crashes 3/5
I only gave this app 3 stars because it is so unstable. It is an outstanding research tool, when it works.
I am running the latest version on an iPad Pro running iOS 11.4.1, the latest 11.x available.
I run the app in research mode (multiple screens). I start the app, and create three additional screens: tasks, recents, and another tree. At least half the time, the app freezes (becomes unresponsive) within the next minute or two. I kill it, restart it and try again. Sometimes it runs for a while, sometimes it doesn’t. I also find that if I switch to another app for a few minutes, then come back, that Family Tree has crashed and it restarts itself.
There are other times when I try to access the database (such as saving a change to a burial). The black screen with the little twirly thing just sits there. I switch to another app for a couple of minutes and come back. Sometimes this endless black screen finally resolves and I see the results. Other times it seems to crash the app, which then restarts itself when I switch back.
I have had these same problems on several recent versions of the app. Updating the app has never helped, nor has updating iOS helped. If you could make the app more stable, I would give it 4 or 5 stars.
Great service 4/5
By Sergey Saks
Can we expect a fix for album navigation in the Photos app? It’s so hard to not miss photo when you scroll through all of them not being split into albums
Totally awesome! 5/5
I love & appreciate being notified of families names that haven’t been added to my lines before. That & parts of histories or memories that some good person has added in. It has helped me to see & realize how important it is & makes me want to do more to do my part. So thank you, with all my heart for all you do for me! It’s noticed & very appreciated
Great update 5/5
By TSN Jr
The new update makes research and posting much easier. I now use my iPad as easily as my laptop.
Great app 5/5
By Bobo and daisy
You upgrade this so much...it’s by far the best FH app, even if I can’t always catch up. Love it!
Great job very informative
Relatives around me 5/5
By Dave Larsen
Great feature !!
There are a lot of errors, saying they are my relative which is untrue. People are putting in incorrect info.
Great app. Love learning 5/5
By AOA DOC
About my family. This makes it so easy
Love this app! 5/5
I love the emails I get on Sunday mornings!
Great program 5/5
Thank you, change happens regularly to make this program work better, faster and more user friendly.
Unreal sexist modesty restrictions 2/5
The app is difficult to use as far as adding titles to uploaded photos photos, and then, once you’ve struggled with that, not getting them pulled for various restrictions. Like my 70 year old mom at the pool wearing a one-piece bathing suit with a sarong and walking cane. My dad in another photo was showing just as much skin in his shorts and T-shirt but that photo was not tagged.
Someone was attaching family members to my tree that I know for a fact did not belong. Notified FS and was informed the person did not technically brake any rules,really??
I have lost confidence in the reliability of if FS and only use it as a source for official documents. I have removed parts of my family tree and documents that I had personally posted.
Definitely my favorite app 5/5
Open this app from anywhere and view your family tree and details on each ancestor is amazing. My favorite feature is "relatives around me" where you can scan for those around you who also have the app open and find out if you're related. I found several of my friends are distant cousins!
Love it! 5/5
Best product to fill time or waiting time
Tool to the salvation of mankind 5/5
By Howd B
I absolutely love the site. The interface is invaluable to anyone in love with the restoration and its mission.
Entry Convoluted 2/5
Documents marvelous. Search excellent. Maintaining family tree with documents and sources is terribly hard.
I love the new features! 5/5
By McTavish's brother
Multiple screen, Relatives near me, Ordinance Ready, are a few of the newest features. I use to use my computer to do family search, but now I only use the Family Tree app! It’s awesome!
Could be a lot better 3/5
Great app with an amazing purpose, but my God it is one of the buggiest apps I have ever used. Every time I want to use it I find myself opening and closing it at LEAST 3-4 times before it'll actually load and work normally.
family history 5/5
best app ever!!!
They’ve made it difficult! 5/5
The is app is easy to use to do all kinds of efficient and enjoyable activities. I’ve found myself having to pry my family away from doing family history! Who has this “problem”?! Until this app, no one did. I imagine it’s one of those which has recently come into being. Either way what a great problem to have. It has added to our family relationships and been a true blessing in my life. They’ve made family history difficult to get away from, and I’m grateful for that.
Memories - photos What do I do? 2/5
By NW USA
Receive hint for two memories (images)
There was no easily recognizable “save” icon or word.
The keys that were there were no very intuitive
FamilyTree is so advanced!!! 5/5
By Lisa H. S.
I am able to do things because it adapts so well with the many different devices I have and the same for my friends!
Amazing App 5/5
By Ronald Nefi Ross
I love how intuitive it is! The app is very well built. It allows you to have so much information and functionality in such an easy way. Good Job! Great App!
So Great 5/5
We are so blessed to know more about who we are.
I prefer the website to the app at this time. I find the website easier to work in.
It's unstable. 5/5
I Love this app. One of the down sides to it is, it crashes when first opening. So I have to close it two times at least before it works properly. Other than that, Great App!
Great App 5/5
This is a great way to see my family tree and a great aid in resourcing my ancestors. It is an amazing tool and a great help.
Rick Plewe 5/5
Family History is really fun with the Help of computers.
De la Fuente Family 4/5
Family Searches has become a long time due. Found my ancestry’s family. This has help where did I came from in the bloodline.
Searching for more as I learn how navigate this family search engines. Thank You
Not as easy as Ancestry. 4/5
By Home Alone 407
Because I want to do temple work I’m trying to grow my tree in this app. However prior to using Family Search, which only began about a year ago, I used Ancestry for about 10 years. Ancestry is so much easier to use.
This only seems to follow my father's line
Works fine for me. I especially like the new edit format.
Love it 5/5
Thanks a lot for all you do.
Keeps crashing. 2/5
Each attempt to open a ancestors info or go to the next generation it freezes, frustrating.
The records went back hundreds of years, very impressed!
Great starting point 5/5
I have never been one to do genealogy but this app has made it super user friendly to help new guys like me
Family tree 5/5
I’m just soooo surprise I found my great grandmother. My grandma came to visit me today. And I was so curious about my ancestors so I decided to look for it and I’m sooooo surprise and overwhelming I can’t believe I found her mom the one she never met because she die when my grandma was a little girl
By Toni Wilson-Higdon
This has been an amazing experience. What I love about this is it loads information for you once the connections are made. All I had to do was go back as far as my great grandparents and it loaded ancestry all they way back to the 700’s. That’s right not 1700 but 700’s!!!! Love!!
This app is educational, interesting and fun to use. It’s a way to travel back in time to see where we came from, genealogically speaking. I’m finding the process of locating and learning about ancestors to be fascinating. There’s a broader perspective of humanity than just who is living today, and this program helps us see how we’re all connected.
Exciting ! Fast ! 5/5
Information is available to you very fast. I only hope that it is all correct. I’ve been searching on Ancestry for the same information for over ten years. My whole family, back to the early 1600’s showed up instantly on this program!!! Now I need to confirm this as best I can.
This site a really big help in my family search. 5/5
This site is a really big help in my family search. Thank yo
Great Research Helps! 5/5
By JAR Having Fun
I get so many prompts and reminder helps from Family Search! I love this!
Like genealogy 4/5
Admittedly, I’m a novice 3/5
I’m sure there’s some stuff I just haven’t figured out yet, but it seems like I’m very limited in what I can accomplish from the app.
Help! How to get Id? 5/5
How do I find the ID number for a person
This is great! Love the stories about family. The only issue I have is editing. If information is put in wrong it is hard to change. And then sometimes the program chooses what goes where. This needs to be fixed.
