Relative Finder

 Relative Finder

 

When it comes to family history, many people enjoy the thrill of discovering long lost ancestral lines. But what about U.S. Presidents, European Royalty, Constitution Signers, LDS Prophets, and other prominent people.    

Thanks to a BYU-developed application calledRelative Finder, which is now officially certified by FamilySearch.org’s Family Tree, you can find out just how closely related you are to past and present prominent people.

In order to access the application, users must have an account with FamilySearch. LDS members can sign in with their membership number, and non-LDS must have previous genealogy completed on the website. Signing on to Relative Finder is a two step process. When you click here on www.relativefinder.com  you will be presented with a log in page. Next click on the “log in” and you will next be presented with the FamilySearch log in page. Once you are logged into FamilySearch you can start finding relatives among pre-made groups including important historical people.
