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. Youll love it!
Take a Name LDS Family History App Reviews
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!!
Where Id 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.
I found 20 names I didnt 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!
What a great idea! We love it so far.
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. Ive 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!
This app is awesome
Im 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!!!!
This app is super easy to use! Its 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!
This app is so simple, it gets exactly the type of names you want, and I dont really care that I had to wait an entire day because I didnt have to leave the app on for it to work, they even make paying optional. This app is so helpful, really simple, and understands if you dont have the money. I would recommend this app to anyone doing family research. This app saved me hours upon hours of family history work. Thank you take a name for being a great app!
Painless solution to an all-too-common problem. I thought all my familys 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.
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.
This app found dozens of names that I had missed.
I am from Salt Lake City and live in Alberta. I come from pioneer lines on all sides and finding any ordinances to do is near impossible and if one pops up someone else grabs it fast. The app had to search over 2500 names before it came up with even 1 ordinance to do; in the end it searched 9,435 names and found 95 ordinances which is a thrill to someone who never gets to do family names. Glad I found it before the rest of my family or I would not have had a chance. : )) Would have never expected more than 5-10 ordinances!! Then tried it for my 84 year old mother and it searched 12,434 names and came up with 61 more ordinances!!! Didnt expect that! Thought I might have gotten them already. Great app. Worth every cent!
Works really well!
It takes a little while to find, but the names all work.
Thank you for this app!!!! Family temple work for millennials is going to boom! It will make my life easier too when I need to grab a name before I head to the temple. Ive already got my names ready for a trip to the Houston temple next week. I LOVE that this connects straight to your Family Search account. Doesnt get any easier than this.
Makes taking names possible for the modern temple goer. Pros: - Removes need to manage physical temple cards. - Finds names for kids to take for baptisms the night before. - Finds a family name to take 5 min before leaving for a session and print the card from your mobile. - Reserve responsibly and with context. Improvements: - Search is slow. Family Search... you listening? - Add goal dates/reminders for reserved names. - Add calendar integrations. When will you do this name? Push a Name/names to a calendar event. - Add assignments feature to become a family facilitator of the work. Assign a name to anyone in your family via SMS/email. Set a timer on the delegated assignment and track whether they did it in the background by background polls to Family Search. Auto expire an assignment. - ....
So much of my family history work has already been completed by others (research & completed temple work) that it has been hard for me to know where to begin. Within one hour of clicking the search button, 17,000 of my ancestors records had been searched and Take a Name found 20 individuals that still need temple work done for them. With a few more clicks I printed the temple cards at home and had them in hand ready to take to the temple! I also now have 20 new starting points to begin researching from to find more of my ancestors ?
I love this app. I am in love. The TEMPLE!!
