FamilySearch - Tree App Reviews

Not Good

Dont bother downloading it. I cant even login once you set up account. Keeps giving error message. Very frustrating!



Finally offline access to my tree

So glad this app now has the ability to add people to my tree. Thanks! I also love the way it searches my tree for hints.


The update is great - the only glitch is pressing back from when you look at a record, it doesnt seem to go back to the search results list, it just loads for a while. I like the new feature of being able to add alternate names.

Doesnt work at all

My account wouldnt get verified no matter what I did. The whole "use your email to get your account" idea is awful. Why cant you just create an account without having to go to your email and everything?! Its really stupid. Unless you are really lucky and it works for you, dont even bother. Its pointless.


It would be awesome to merge duplicates on the app and show it under ancestors with tasks.


This app does not allow the indication of same sex couples.

Good to know

Good to know it does not include same-sex couples since they are not relevant to an ancestry search.


I love this app so much!! So easy to use! Highly recommend it!


Love it so much its so helpful it lets me see all my family and its great for LDS familys!!!!!!!!! :-)

Great app

Wonderful and its free

Not gay friendly

Need to realize some spouses are same sex.


Its really helpful to find your family history

Wish I could rate zero

Takes fifteen minutes to make an account before u can even start.

Crap app

Theres no WRONG PASSWORD when signing up for an app you just got. All I wanted to do was learn about my family, but I guess I have to feel guilty about THAT, too!!!!

Awesome! And improving!

The app has improved much over the past couple of years. The Ancestors with tasks feature is very helpful for my research. This app is also very useful if you want to show people your family tree or need it as a quick reference. I still cant use the app as much as I want to for research, but it keeps on getting better.

Such a great app!

Its so nice to have an app, so you can work on family history on your mobile device.


Keeps track of your family tree from the browser version. No problems, very easy and simplified version.

Family search

Very good and convenient!

Not what I thought

After downloading my gedcom file, with 140+ members, I learned I would have to add them one by one, then link them, on the tree. Downloading helped the church, but not me. Fine app for someone starting a new tree, not good for someone who simply wants accessibility & portability for family gatherings.
