    Hi all,

    Iiii know your all probably saying she has a lot of questions!!! And as a NOOB I really, really do! With that said, I thank you all for your patience and replies!

    My next question is, are any of you genealogy enthusiast? If so, are there any genealogy apps for the Ipad2 that have the database stored on the device?

    If not, any suggestions?

    Thanks as always for any assistance!

    Such A NOOB fan

    I use Gedview and Families. Both store databases on the device. The Families app syncs with the PC program, Legacy. Any changes you make to the family file on the iPad are transferred to the PC whenever you sync with Legacy, and likewise if you make changes on the PC. It even transfers pictures attached to your family database. I've been very pleased with both apps. I also use the Ancestry app to access my trees on ancestry.com, but those databases are stored on remote servers so internet access is required to view them.

    Hi Dellboy,

    I am going to delete the duplicate post that you made in the Introduction section of the Forum. Try to avoid double posting, since this makes it difficult for members to follow and/or help you.

    Thank!

    any apps to look up people in cemetery's? I know my aunt is big in the genealogy stuff but doesn't have an iPad. She is always at the cemetery's looking around and looking up people, finding more information on the family, calling people and getting photo's and stuff.

    Would be cool to go to a cemetery, type in someones name and the location of the cemetery and pull up any info on them.

    Dellboy, is your familytree information on your itunes account? Where is it located?
