About this app

Take a Name is a family history app for LDS Church members who want to take their own family names to the temple. It requires a FamilySearch account with access to LDS ordinances.

Find temple ready ancestors. Take a Name searches the FamilySearch tree for your deceased ancestors and double checks that LDS ordinances are ready for the temple.

Request LDS ordinances and print temple cards – from your phone!

Try before you buy, pick your price. Try Take a Name for free! You can purchase the app when you're ready via in-app purchase.

Less time searching. More time serving. Take a Name typically delivers dozens of temple ready family names in a matter of minutes. It’s genealogy, but easier!

FamilySearch Certified. Kinpoint is a FamilySearch partner, authorized to submit names for temple work.

Data integrity. Take a Name performs a detailed set of data checks to provide confidence that an LDS ordinance is temple ready. It also excludes names of ancestors with unresolved duplicates. Take a Name does far more than simply scraping the FamilySearch website for green temples!

Spend time in the temple with your ancestors instead of outside trying to find them.

Genealogy has never been so satisfying!

When it works, its great! Developers seem to respond in about a week, which is helpful. Occasionally it can get stuck (especially after an android update 🙄 which I blame android and t-mobile, who went from being behind on updates to hyper updating way too often). After my experience with the developer, I'd say, if it's not working, let them know. They seem reasonably responsive and oriented to get it working. This app is super resourceful coordinating work across the globe quick & efficiently.

Need to change login info to not say "LDS or Family Search" login, because those are no longer in sync, but should just mention Family Search login only. Currently not working. After inputting login info it fails to load and goes back to login page, but with no error. (Wrong password gives an error). Please fix.
