    I love this app!
  • Great app with world of your family history

    I love discovering my family history. Easy to use and life time of family history.
  • App okay, but DNA a waste of money

    By DrPippi
    Both my grandmothers’ maiden names are Norwegian and the original DNA results reflected that history. Then Ancestry updated all the results and completely wiped out any connection to Norway or Scandinavia with no explanation. I’m left with a murky blob of Western Europe and the British Isles. I think they are more concerned with connecting paying users to each other than with accuracy of your genetic history.

  • Unbelievably great results

    I had no idea that I could find out so much about my ancestors. I only wish I could have showed my Mother these results. All the more reason to participate in the US Census.
  • Great App!

    Have really enjoyed using this app to research my family history. We have solved several family mysteries and learned so much about our heritage. I definitely recommend to all.

    The app is fantastic. Very robust and easy to use. I find it a great tool when having family conversations about history and family stories. It alerts me to new findings and details and I can update profiles “on the go” as needed. Love it!

  • Excellent App

    By Mergymass
    A very rich window into Ancestry’s database. You need to evaluate hints and thru lines critically, since user trees are sometimes wrong. But overall it’s a wonderful resource.
