How To Add Sources Using The FamilySearch Tree App

This is just a quick tutorial about how to add sources using the FamilySearch Tree App on a smartphone. I use an Android phone. I'm assuming the FamilySearch Tree App works the same way on an Apple phone too, but I don't know for sure.

If you haven't installed the FamilySearch Tree App yet, you can do so by going to the Google Play Store and searching for FamilySearch Tree. You can also just click HERE.

So, let's begin. Open the FamilySearch Tree App on your smartphone.

Here's the FamilySearch Tree App home screen.

Choose an ancestor from your pedigree chart.

You will then be taken to that ancestor's Details page.

See the little blue circle near Amanda's picture? That tells me there are record hints.

Click on the blue record hints icon. You will be taken to the list of record hints.

Click on the record hint you would like to review.

Scroll down and click on "Review."

The Record Review screen will appear.

If this is the correct record for your ancestor, click on the blue paper clips and then scroll down and click on Attach. It's also a good idea to include a reason why you are attaching this source in the box provided.

That's all there is to it. You've just attached a source record for your ancestor.

To return to the Detail page for your ancestor, click on the X next to Record Review at the top of the screen. 

The FamilySearch Tree App makes it super easy to do family history at any time. How fun is that?!

Thanks for reading!
