Description

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! You can 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!

    The take a name app doesn't work well for me. When I search up male baptisms and confirmations I get females and many males that their work has already been done. Also, it comes up with a random number of names, sometimes more and sometimes less names. Maybe it is just my device but only a few of the people's names haven't been done.
  • Love But...

    I truly love the concept of this app. I used it for the first time and was super excited that I could reserve a name, make the card a pdf, and get it printed at the temple in a couple of minutes. It made temple work feel so easy. BUT, it only works if you are sure all information is correct on your family search tree. I realized this when I told my friend about this app; she got her name printed only to realize that there was a possibility of a duplicate on her family search. Fearfully, I looked back at my family tree and noticed that the name I was provided by the app was actually one that had an unresolved issue. She had 3 different sets of parents written on her bio. So I don’t even know if I did the correct ordinance for her. I HIGHLY advice anyone using this app to verify on their family search before reserving and printing the name.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!!
