FamilySearch App Gallery Part 6

See Part 1 here. Part 2 here. Part 3 here. Part 4 here. Part 5 here.

In part 2 we learned the App Gallery is broken up into 5 categories.

The final and fifth category is Tree Analyzing. The programs in this category help uncover areas of your family tree that need more attention. Don’t we all need this? There are 38 apps (as of 2/23/16) in this category for you to use!

These are some of my all time favorite apps to use! I hope you find some great use out of them also.

Find a record

Find a record is my go to program doing family history! It’s my to-do list without having to write a to-do list 😉 When I only have a few minutes this is my go to. I’m planning on a post just on Find a Record so look for that in the future. Find a Record will search your tree on FamilySearch for issues in 6 different categories. It even gives you details about what is wrong so you aren’t searching for it.

puzzillaPuzzilla may look like a funny web but it’s a powerful tool in family history. I love looking at puzzilla for descendancy research. It’s a great way to see where family members may be missing at a glance.


Relative Finder is so much fun! This program shows you who you are related to. It has pre loaded trees for famous people through out history. Because this is a BYU program it does include LDS historical people, pioneers included. The other fun feature is you can make your own group and invite friends to see how you are related to them!

What interesting things did you find using these apps? How did they help you expand your family?

      Nicole! I have followed you for a while now, it’s a pleasure to have you visit! It’s not very often you run into another mom genealogist let alone a blogger. Thanks for coming!
