  • Deeper Features! Add merge dupes please.

    By spudfish
    It will do almost everything that can be done on the desktop!
  • A wonderful tool for growing my tree.

    By steppmom5
    I love that I can work on my tree any time, anywhere. It works fast and so smoothly. I sure didn’t know what I was missing.
  • Great Journey

    By GeorgiaE
    I didn’t expect what a wonderful journey I would have joining Ancestry. It’s so weird how family lose contact with each other. I never thought I would find my slave ancestor. There was a surprise around every corner.
  • Great pastime

    By KevoTheCEO
    I started off as a skeptic, not knowing what to expect. I began with a few names I had from my family, piecing together what little I knew. After a few days of plugging in names and dates, I started to get a leaf here and there. From that point on I was hooked. I spent three months putting my family tree together. It was a proud moment for me; a hobby it became. I would definitely recommend ancestry to anyone who asks.
  • Handy

    I love this app because you get to know your families past and start your family tree wherever you want.
  • iPad app not great.

    By Bishoujobunny
    So I was using the app on my iPad after a very long break (over a year). Every once in a while the app would crash my iPad and cause it to reboot on its own. Annoyed, I checked and there was an update for ancestry, so I got it. Now the app will not even open. It acts like it will, loads for a bit, then closes. Very irritated because the info is too small on my phone and carrying around my heavy old MacBook Pro is a hassle. My iPad is updated to the latest version as well.
  • Good Information

    By JMD6224
    Like to use this app to find my ancestors. Lots of information.
  • Tracking ancestors

    By Mimi's$
    Started genealogy in 1979. Paper and pens gave way to computers. This app is so very easy to navigate. I’m loving finding facts that support the family stories.
  • Can’t merge

    By Michelle Gaps
    Since the update, I can’t seem to be able to merge any of my duplicate ancestors. What happened to that option?? It seems harder to use now.
