Descendancy Research On the Go with the FamilySearch Tree Mobile App
Have you ever spent an hour at the doctor’s office waiting for your turn, wishing you had something more interesting to do than scanning Facebook? Try the FamilySearch Tree Mobile App! I just discovered the “Descendants with Tasks” feature and it’s pretty smooth.
You can go to an ancestor, view their profile, and click the menu button to see the “Descendants With Tasks” option.
There you’ll see a list of all that ancestor’s descendants who have “tasks” – either record hints to attach (blue icons) or temple work to reserve (green temple icons).
When you click on the blue record hint icon, you can view the transcription of the record and decide if it could be a match.
If you think it could be a match, then click “review” and go to the side by side comparison view.
From there, you can add facts and attach the record as a source to the Family Tree. All from your mobile device!
