Enjoy the freedom to go anywhere with the FamilySearch
Mobile App. You can use the app on any mobile device; Phone, Tablet, and IPad. You can attach sources, upload memories, map your ancestors, view your fan charts, etc, etc. If you are a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you can get names for the temple with the Ordinances Ready Feature, take your phone to the temple, and they will print your cards for you.
Scott Hill is a retired Chemical Engineer. He enjoys doing family history and especially loves the programming side of it. He has been teaching himself how to program mobile apps. He has a few mobile apps in development that he hopes will be up and running in the next few
months. One is a Family History app for children to get to know their ancestors. Another one is a matching game that his younger grandkids love to play. He has 6 children, 24 grandchildren and one more on the way.
