  • I Love It

    By Mrs. Nikitin
    I am glad that I decided to go on I was able to find relatives I never knew. It is so a beautiful thing to be reconnected with family. It is truly a blessing.
  • Ancestry Questions Always Amazing

    By GaBred
    Having watched for a number of years now its rather amazing how it’s evolved over time. So much more information is available today than when I started. My only complaint is the cost. I’ve got tons of family members who’d love to use the app but simply can’t afford it. If it was made more affordable more of them could add information and make my tree much more fun and useful.
  • Love it

    By Banaeen
    I love the app. It is like finding new treasures around every corner. It is so enjoyable to get lost in the research of learning about your ancestors. I highly recommend this app!
  • Can’t cancel during free trial

    By Kbeadnell
    Thought I had canceled during free trial wasn’t able to cancel even after I found out I was being billed, called customer support and no help. Ended up having to call iTunes Store to cancel. NOT WORTH THE “FREE” TRIAL!
  • Super App

    By Ashers Dad
    Great info on your family history!
  • Better than expected

    By Geekfourfood
    The app is better than I expected. I find it so much easier to review/accept tree hints. I am hoping that searches are easier as well.
  • LOVE this App

    By Gypsyveg
    I use this app all day nearly every day and I love it.
  • works great

    By melz828
    I use this the most compared to the ancestry website. Its always logged in and ready to go and super easy to navigate. There are a few things you can't do here that you have to do on the website but that makes sense so you have a second layer of protection of accidentally deleting or moving your hard searched for stuff. I have looked at other genealogy sites/apps and this is the best.
