App Description

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—Try Take a Name for free! Purchase the app 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!

  • Fabulous!

    What a great idea! We love it so far.
  • Awesome App!!!

    By Pretty darn awesome app
    My line has had a lot of work done. So it takes some doing to find ordinances that need to be done. Take a Name searched through 82000 records and found around 37 ordinances. An extra bonus, working on the names found by Take a Name must have alerted Family Searches algorithms to new connections for my line because right after working on the names, family search emailed me a new name as well. I've been working with a family history missionary to make sure the names are not just duplicate records. While some were, many are legit names I can take to the temple. Well worth a try!
  • Great app

  • Where have you been all my life "take a name"?

    I'm so excited to have this app at my finger tips to get names last minute when needed. Either going to the temple with my wife on ward temple night or doing baptisms with my son and young men. Love it!!!!
  • Great app!

    This app is super easy to use! It's such a great concept. Within a few minutes it had found several names with multiple ordinances to be done. I would definitely recommend this app to everyone interested in taking names to the temple!
  • You can take family names now!

    Painless solution to an all-too-common problem. I thought all my family's ordinances were done, but Take A Name searches TENS OF THOUSANDS of your ancestors (surprisingly quickly) and dig up ordinances that it would take you years to find. DOWNLOAD NOW.
  • Easy to use!!!

    I love this app! I found 21 ancestors needing temple work done in 10 minutes. It is efficient and easy to use for those who may not be completely tech savvy.
  • Great app

    This app found dozens of names that I had missed.
  • Modern Family History

    I was using the app and the interface is so easy to navigate and I have such an easy time doing so. I mean, I'm laying on a couch in the middle of the Rocky Mountains on vacation and I can say I did family history thanks to this app. My favorite part is the internal Google Map where you can see where each ancestor is from and how they are related to you. I loved seeing all my ancestors from Norway and Germany. It was quite an experience and I'm very excited to get these names done. I am a college student and I couldn't be happier with an app that helped me in my family history.
  • Amazing App

    I am completely amazed by this app! It did an extensive search of over 80,000 records and found a number of ancestors who still needed ordinances done. It linked easily with Family Tree and reserving and printing out cards was shockingly easy. I am so excited to finally have some of my own family names to take to the temple!!
