    I have found my Swedish Grandfather’s family and am exploring my Grandmother’s family. So many 2nd and 3rd cousins I didn’t know. Very exciting.

    This app works good. It is useful when you don’t have access to your computer, when you think of something you want to add or look up.

  • My review

    By Bethel Ave.
    Mostly easy to navigate, I have found info and links beyond my expectations! The cost is a bit high, however.
