Why require iOS 12 on iPhone only?

This previously working app stopped working due to a recent change at FamilySearch (I presume). It says an update is required. When I try to update, it requires ios12. Why? I am running iOS 11.4 on both my phone and iPad. The iPad version continues to work and does not require an update or an OS upgrade.

And by the way, it is way too early to abandon iOS 11 support. Most apps will maybe not support new features until you upgrade, but it is rare to not offer a few versions with downward compatibility. Shame on your developers for letting this happen.

Hi Deborah, this app should work with iOS 11. We haven't been able to replicate this issue. Please send an email to with screenshots and details and we'll look into this further for you.

Serial Memorial makers

I don’t like these people using my tree to make my family’s memorials. As another
Commenter said it’s creepy & some of these people are very rude & unhelpful. If you know the info is incorrect you want it changed. So is documented & some may be because you knew the person & know it’s factual.
Knowing you’re owned by ancestry why can’t you make sure that Memorial makers are family members. The woman who got nasty with me is not a family member. She created wrong info for my great great grandmother off of a cousins tree in New Zealand. That guy is by marriage & he will not even change the info on his tree. I have proof of our family & these two are wrong. At least make it easier for us to get our family away from the people.

Amazing volunteers connecting family

This application is really the best. It is a community of volunteers, working together to memorialize grave markers for everyone!
It allows families to connect, by linking, even if they are in different places and provides a causal user benefit if they just want to know who came before them. It allows people to personalize the memorials, add photos, and to- with a small fee- purchase a memorial without ads and unlimited photographs.
No other cite is as valuable a resource for helping people who are working on family history.
Thank you so much for those who have made it and for those who work so hard to make it wonderful.
