  • Warning: Highly Addictive!

    This app has robbed me of many hours of quality sleep when I find myself in the wee hours just ... trying to ... follow ... one ... more ... lead *yawn*, linking branches to my tree. For an amateur historian & genealogist like me this app is simply indispensable. Thanks!

    Great to find family
  • Updates to iPhone app make it SLOWER AND WORSE

    I love Ancestry but their updates are just making the app (on my phone) much slower and harder to search. Shouldn’t updates improve and make faster?? Come on, developers. We care less about the fancy cutesy touches and simply want an easy to use and fast app. Get to work!
  • Simply the Best!

    By Sirycar
    It’s amazing the amount of information that you can research and collect. Everything is intuitive and eye pleasing. I was amazed to find information regarding my distant relatives in another country ( Mexico ). I’ve tried other sites and apps but they fall short. I didn’t give 5 stars because I think is overpriced and it doesn’t have a way to add videos or voice memos. Otherwise is a great research tool and family tree maker!
  • Great app

    I love this app! My only complaint is the price. I am stuck. I can’t go any further on my tree without going to Europe and that is $35 per month. Too rich for me.
