Here’s a list of 4 family tree maker apps for Android which you can use to create a family tree. Apps for creating family trees won’t always do everything for you, leaving you to just type in your name, and hoping that the app will do the rest. Some will do that, but for the most part you’ll have to do your own family history research. Family tree maker app is just a great app to keep and organize info that you find.
Let’s see the apps we found.
Ancestry is an family tree maker app created by the very popular Ancestry.com website. You might already have a profile there.
Both the website and the app are great because if you’re a US citizen, chances are good that the website already has some information about your family. 9 countries internationally are also supported. This makes family tree creation a lot easier. Even if there isn’t any info, family tree can be easily created using the app, see image above. Just add boxes for family members, fill out their info, add headshots, etc.
FamilySearch Tree isn’t that feature rich as the Ancestry app is. For example it doesn’t have the full functionality that would let you create family trees from the app.
Family trees have to be setup on the website. You then login into the app and there view the family tree, change info. Via the app it’s also possible to search for people. What’s great about FamilySearch Tree is that it focuses more of it’s record gathering efforts to the international scene, so if you’re outside of US you might have more luck finding your family origins with this service.

MyHeritage features global historical records, but it requires a subscription to access that data.
Even without access to historical records, this family tree maker app can still be a lot of help, because it lets you create family trees and organize data that you find. It actually has a more intuitive interface than the Ancestry app.
Family Tree is a very simplistic app, which doesn’t have a records database. It’s just a family tree maker.
A small drawback is that the app only allows you to go three generations back, to your great, great, great grandparents. You can add basic info about family members, photos, etc.

Creating a family tree was the easiest with the MyHeritage app. Like I already mentioned it’s my favorite app because of it clear and understandable interface, which won’t take a lot of time to figure out. Ancestry and FamilySearch Tree are also good because they give you access to at least some kind of database of births/deaths to help you get started. Try a combination of FamilySearch Tree to find people and MyHeritage app to actually create the family tree. As always leave a comment down below with your thoughts and suggestions.
