Recently I wrote about the Take a Name app which helps LDS members find family names who need ordinances performed at the temple: Find Family Names for the Temple with the Take a Name App. A friend commented that we need to be sure to verify these names that were found with the app before taking […]
At RootsTech in February, a reader pointed us to a new app for finding family names for the temple. It’s called “Take A Name” by Kinpoint. I tried it out, and it’s pretty great! Within about 15 minutes, the app scanned my tree and found 70 names and 174 ordinances. It also told me how […]

She encouraged the family history center directors and consultants present to use the Spirit and their experience (or lack thereof) to help people accomplish […]
Today I’m introducing Alana McCormack, my newly discovered cousin from London, England. Actually, Alana discovered me!
