It searched my entire tree in about 20 minutes, which pretty impressive since I’ve medieval genealogy in my tree. It found 11 names. Unfortunately, 9 of those names had multiple duplicates, including one woman with 10!!! in Family Tree. The other 2 that it found, included an ordinance that requires permission before it can be done. The other name needs more research because there’s evidence that this is not her maiden name.

If this were about cleaning up your tree and making it as accurate as possible, I’d say that this is a great tool for that. However, finding ordinances, I’m not so sure. If more members were careful about checking the information, I’d feel more comfortable recommending it. Temple and family history work isn’t just about seeing how many names you can find. It’s about learning about yourself and your family as you search out your ancestors.

Biggest Pro: Takes you to parts of your tree you’d never see otherwise.
Biggest Con: Can’t really determine what’s a duplicate and what’s not

Very much quicker than searching through all the lines that you add to your tree to find those that you can submit to the Temple - really good

Biggest Pro: speed of finding people
Biggest Con: can’t think of one

Super great program! It finds all the ordinances that still need to be done with my family and it searches super far back and it is truly amazing to see all these great people I am related to!
But for several hours now, I have been stuck in this eternal loop and I have been wondering if it will ever end…But I legitimately think it is stuck and wont move on and I’m really sad, just in case there is still family that needs to be looked at and they are missing out from this program.

Biggest Pro: Searches really deep into your tree to find those that still needs ordinances completed.
Biggest Con: Serious malfunction in getting stuck in an eternal loop and can’t discover more of the family at a certain point.

This is very exciting to extend your family lines so far back but on quite a few of my lines I ended up in an eternal loop that just added generation after generation of the same name. Hope you can fix this. It is quite a hassle to free yourself from this occurrence so be prepared to watch and stop as soon as it gets started.

Biggest Pro: Instant access to lineage you have never seen before…

I love how quickly this program searches for information and links names

Biggest Pro: quickly finds duplicates and ancestors who need temple ordinances
Biggest Con: figuring out how to find the duplicates is not an easy process
