"Simple, fun and interesting"

"Having to press the back button is time consuming for this activity. Then you have access to the match button. If I tap on the word block where I am to verify the match I am able to type in the correct letters. I was not even going back to the edit button to type in the correct letters. Did it save the my work or send it to the next person? A little bit more instructions would help. If you are using the computer to write instructions, the usumtion of knowing all steps is not serving well. Thanks"

"Love this app and how convenient it makes it to index; however, I haven`t been able to index for the past few days, because an error message keeps appearing when trying to load names."

"Every time I try to use this app, I get an error. Every single time. All it says is, ``Unfortunately an error has occurred. Please try again later.`` It doesn`t even give troubleshooting information or a number to call."

"Why not tell us which countries are available BEFORE we install? It is just irritating to install, and then find all the countries available are ones that use a different language from me, so I`m more likely to be wasting my time looking."

"It`s fun to use. Features I like include the ability to zoom out and see more text. I have two features to request: the ability to go back to a previous name, and the ability to change the contrast and balance of the displayed image. One thing that wasn`t clear to me at first was that the ``enter`` key on my keyboard was meant to be used for entering ``match`` after editing."

"I love the app, along with the computer online version. It`s a great way to pass the time, asking with helping others learn their genealogy. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because some places aren`t available. For example, within the United States of America, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Iowa are not there. I`m sure there are more, but these are the ones I noticed. Otherwise, great app."

"If social media cannot remember your saved password and keep it secure from breeches caused by being compromised on social media platforms by other medias sincing or copying your passwords on every website you sign-in to; The demand more ways to ascertain all of your private information by alledging they cannot remember your passwords, is a farce to cover up the facts that it is META and Google, as well as all other media, is gathering all persons identity to supply The Mormon Temples for Satan."

"Frustrating. It has assigned me to a language that I don`t speak, and doesn`t have any option for changing the language. Crazy making."

"This app is incredible! It is so very easy and quick to be able to contribute to family history by indexing. It literally takes maybe 2 minutes to do 20 names. I love that I can just do a few here and there whenever I have a minute."

DESCRIPTION
Historical records—like immigration papers and birth certificates—can help people learn interesting and valuable insights about their family.

Problem is, many of those insights are locked away in documents that are not easily searchable.

FamilySearch Get Involved provides simple tools to unlock the family names in those documents so they can be searched online for free.


How it works
FamilySearch uses sophisticated scanning technology to find ancestor names in historical records. Most of the time the computer can recognize the correct name. But it can’t always get it right.


Using FamilySearch Get Involved, anyone can quickly review names in historical records and verify what the computer found or flag any errors. Each name that gets corrected is a person that can now be found by their living family.

• Help people find their ancestors online.
• Focus on a country that is important to you.
• Give back to the genealogy community.
• Use spare time in a meaningful way.

Even correcting just one name makes a big difference. The names you will see in the Get Involved app are real people that have been lost to history until now. With your help, these people can be reunited with their family across generations.
