You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Descendants and Spouses

    Please add spouses to the Descendants search results or add a Descendants and Spouses search option.

    I frequently find record hints in FamilySearch that are only on one spouse even though both people are in the record - marriage records for example.

    • add the ability to subscribe to search results

      It would be very useful to be able to subscribe to a given search. For example, I might want to know when new source hints are available for my ancestors or when there are potential duplicate descendants of a given ancestor. You could email these monthly. You don't have to include all the results in the email, maybe just the first 10 then have a link to findarecord.com to run the search.

        • You should have a way of hidding multiple ancesters.

          you should make check boxes to hide multiple ancesters instead of trying to hide one ancester at a time.

                  • Seamless transition from FS to FindaRecord.

                    Be able to enter FindaRecord from FS, as a helper, without the need for person being helped FS pass word.

                    This inability is pretty much a deal breaker when attempting to prepare an effective session with the person to be helped.

                        • Let select the number of descendants generations from our ancestors

                          Now we can select the number of generations of our ancestors and their children and grand-children. But I'm a megalomaniac and would like to search ALL the descendants of my ancestors. Could it be possible to select de number of generations descending from our ancestors?

                          Please, think in us the megalomaniacs.

                                My grandfather had a step-father and he is added to FT, but I'm not interested in searching the ancestors of his step-father, only the ancestors of his biological-father. I think it would be nice if we could select to search only among biological ancestors.

                                  • Auto-Load Next Record Hint

                                    I have enjoyed working with record hints. I like to pick a 3rd great grandparent and work forward in history attaching as many records to all of my cousins as possible. In order to do this I usually have the start person as the 3rd great grandparent and have findarecord search for all hints for 6 generations, I then go through one at a time.

                                    My idea: what if there was a way to have the next record hint automatically load as soon as I have completed the last record hint? Take out as much of the navigation and loading…
