Inspiration Facebook is a hub of connecting people from whole world and Familysearch is hub for loads of family data.So by merging we can connect unnoted family members in facebook and get a huge data source for familysearch to drive in unregistered people.
What it does
It allows users to sync their family data and facebook.It injects family member suggestions ,places suggestions etc into facebook page getting persons family data from family search if already the person's heritage is available.If not it creates person and write backs the data available in facebook like name,DOB,place,interests and also creates family tree by using the Groups of person in facebook.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
To work with chrome extension getting the api's work in background.To create a person in familysearch by getting facebook data of person is bit tricky to get, process and send whole lot of json/xml data at once.
