  • Search by City, birthday, cemetery, etc would be great!

    By 7Blake8
    This is a great app to use especially when on the go and meeting people/family. If the search option would allow other identifiers (city, cemetery, birthday, etc) that would be great. You would be able to visit/research that specific area which helps minimize back tracking!🙂

    I use them all. This search action is by far the most outreaching app.
  • Cool but

    The app is cool but when you select a leaf it sometimes ask for you to sign up when you already are.
  • Fantastic!!!

    I got a free trial and typed in my fathers name. Instantly a picture of my Dad appeared that I had never seen before !! I was hooked and now have over 5000 relatives I didn’t know about. Just do it. You won’t be disappointed.
  • Love it!

    It’s very user-friendly; the only issue I have is that I will see a “leaf”/hint, click on the name and find zero hints! That kind of drives me nuts! Other than that...

    This app no longer works on my iPhone X. I can’t sign in and it keep saying contact support. It’s been over a week and nothing has been done to fix the issue. I don’t expect a response to this message but please fix this issue ASAP. I have five accounts I manage and accessing them on my phone is important. Right now I have to go online and using it in Safari is terrible. Carrying my computer everywhere is not an option.
