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!

This app is so simple, it gets exactly the type of names you want, and I don't really care that I had to wait an entire day because I didn't have to leave the app on for it to work, they even make paying optional. This app is so helpful, really simple, and understands if you don't have the money. I would recommend this app to anyone doing family research. This app saved me hours upon hours of family history work. Thank you take a name for being a great app!
