The Family Nexus now offers Premium Subscriptions

The Family Nexus published an update to its popular iPhone app today releasing premium features for subscribers. David R. Taylor, founder of The Family Nexus stated, “We believe family history can be mobile and social. The release of our Premium Features today moves us closer to our vision of making your family history an epic adventure of discovery.”

The free version lets users visualize life events of their ancestors in a map, which is a fun and engaging way to see family history. Premium Features allow subscribers to customize the map experience in new ways. Filter controls allow users to show or hide certain types of events, filter by date range, or isolate a family line by showing only ancestors of a particular person. What is more, subscribers can turn on locations of key places such as cemeteries, churches, and courthouses which can be very helpful when visiting an area.

“These new features are a significant step forward in our journey to make family history more mobile and more social. The positive response of our fans and users encourages us to continue developing innovative new features.”
