  • User for many years

    I started using ancestry when it first came on the market. I am a genealogist. I’ve seen it improve and get better over the years. I’m proud of my work, but I would never have accomplished so much without Ancestry. It’s top notch!

    I love the app. I like to use it when I’m away from home but have tons of ancestors.
  • Great on the phone

    Not the best on my iPad (glitchy with tree and zooming) but works great on my iPhone.
  • Very Illuminating Indeed!!

    I’m enjoying every aspect and capability of the app. I ‘found’ an entire part of my maternal family that I never realized existed!
  • Good family tree app

    Love how user friendly this app is!
  • Beneficial but not great.

    By stepe66
    App is adequate but could be better. For example, each profile should have a facts page with links to sources. I do use it on my tablet when I’m on the go. It’s great to be able to make connections when I’m away from my computer and the house.
  • I Love this app!
