Mobile_App

We live in a mobile world. You should be able to connect with your ancestors wherever you are. FamilySearch has released two new mobile apps that will make it easy to do just that. With FamilySearch Tree and FamilySearch Memories you can add memories and sources of your relatives on the go. Everything you add will sync with FamilySearch.org, so information will be accessible from any device and will be preserved for future generations. Both apps are free.

FamilySearch Tree

FamilySearch Tree is a mobile companion to FamilySearch.org. This app makes it easy to add photos, stories, and audio recordings to ancestors in the tree. Adding or updating ancestor details like names, dates, and relationships is not currently available, but is coming soon.
