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!



  • Almost perfect

    By Dylansdad75
    This app has been truly helpful and my family uses it all the time. I bought it since it it so good. The only thing that could make it better is if you could select multiple names and then request them. Also, once reserved, if you could print multiple names per sheet of paper instead of one per sheet. My work around has been to request them one by one on this app and then go into Family Tree and print all of the ones that I’ve reserved, since Family Tree let’s me print multiple names per sheet. Keep up the great work!
  • What I’ve been looking for!

    I’ve always found it quite hard to thread through my family tree for family members who still need ordinances done, but this app has truly helped me find those lost family members that I now can do the work for. I thought I was caught up until I did the search on this app and found I have many family members ordinances that I still need to finish! I am so grateful I found this app & hope to spread the word to my young generation who would also find this app helpful and easy!
  • Enabler! :D

    This app has enabled me to take over 250 names to do baptisms over the last few months, and I will surely use it for other temple ordinances when that’s an option. I currently use two LDS accounts to find names for - mine and my stepfather’s - and while this app isn’t built for account hopping, it’s not a big ordeal nonetheless. In response to an earlier review concerned about the 100-ordinance limit: that’s the number the app will let you have reserved, total. Because I cannot perform ordinances beyond baptism and confirmation yet, it was necessary to unreserve some sealings and such to be able to reserve more baptisms. I am so grateful this app exists! I will be using the (optional) donate feature very soon. Thank you so much. Many of my ancestors owe you. :)

  • No duplicates

    By bgroovytwo
    It found three names and I do believe they were not duplicates.
  • Great Model for How Gospel-based apps should work

    By PhoenixFF
    I like how this app is free but allows the user to donate to support its development. I believe this is a great model for Gospel-based apps. Consider a donations button instead of in-app purchases, you can keep 30% that Apple would otherwise take.
  • Amazing!

    I open the app and I say “oh I have a. Family searh account” but then I don’t go to lds church so I made 4 new accounts and I still didn’t have anything
  • Outstanding app for finding names

    By Bro Lunt
    Just what I hoped would come to help me find family names. Save lots of time. Like that you pay what you think it’s worth to you. I payed a little extra to help get this app off the ground. I would recommend it to all LDS users. Give it a try for free and see what it can do help you
