  • Just love it

    Can’t afford a genealogist so this is perfect...

    This a direct move to my family tree on Ancestry and I really enjoy being able to share my posts to family and friends. It's also easy to get to my DNA results and show them to my family. The app is really great.
  • Bad app got worst

    By broncorat
    No way to export matches. No way to filter New Hints. No way to know how many matches I have. No way to know how many new Hints I have. No way to filter out Private trees. No way to filter out empty trees. No way to select Viewed from the match page. No way to deselect details in match page. Not way to set how many matches to show per page. Spend some money developing a better app and less on Ethnicity Estimation. Don’t tell me to open a help ticket since developers never look at the suggestions made.

    Gave Me The Edge To So Many Folks and Relatives I Did Know I Even Had In My Past. They Spelled My Name Correctly As Well.
  • Better than not having it.

  • A Fan FOR SURE

    By benddahlke
    Am involved nearly every day with trying to connect my family to the old country. . .still working on it. This ap is a little slow with a large tree like my own (20,000 people). But still love it.
  • Easy and convenient

    Great way to do family history instead of getting on social media on my phone!!
  • Much better

    I had used Ancestry to trace my family tree 15 years ago and found it to be a head spinning experience. Keeping track of information as it became ever more convoluted was difficult. With the app all the data collected is retained in one place and the timeline stories really help me to retain what I have discovered.
