  • I wanted to give it a 4, but gave it a 5 anyway 5/5

    By Bubb36305
    I had too. Very very nice application. I want d to hol back a star as a ransom for a feature I want them to add, to-wit the ability to merge duplicates. That would be super useful, but not worth holding back a star. So it's STAR STAR STAR STAR & STAR
  • Excellent 5/5

  • Great improvement 4/5

    By SydneyRoamer
    This is working a treat
  • Too Expensive 5/5

    By Frost6935@charter net.
    I've been with Family Tree Maker for many years and have enjoyed it very much. I am now using Ancestry and am very happy with it but when you have to get into the World subscription I think it's way over charged, one month cost $39+ month. I will probably get a month subscription because I do have family members in Scotland, Norway, Finland & Sweden. It will probably be worth. JS
  • Terrible Customer Service 1/5

    By Sebastian Williams
    I was very interested in Ancestry. Yet, when my money was running tight, they refused to refund my money for being less than 24 hours after the "Renewal Day" I told "Mary" that I was unable to call the day before because I am a firefighter and I was on multiple calls that day. UNFORTUNATELY they did not care at all and took my money even when I have no intention on using it for this month. THANK YOU, ANCESTRY!!!

    Handy, easy to use but better on laptop
  • Genealogy on the go. 5/5

    By CooperJD
    Data any where any time
  • Wonderful Site, Good App 4/5

    By CBGfoto
    Amazing website, wonderful records. This app, however, is a little less straightforward than I would like. For example, it is difficult to figure out how to switch from viewing one family tree to viewing another. The problems with this app are not enough to keep me from using the app instead of the website. Good app, needs a little improvement, but is definitely usable as is.
  • Ancestry an excellent experience 5/5

    By Harleydane01
    Since being a member of, I have learned so much about my family that I never knew. It's the best site to connect with family and to learn about your past. Had DNA done and even more information popped up. Wonderful.
  • Love it-it's even better than the pc version! 5/5

    By AprilWallace
    Great programming went into this app. It's smoother to use than even the regular pc version. The only thing missing are the same features that I wish were added to the reg version (like hiding some of tree members when you want to view direct lines and also I wish you could separate large portions of the tree and rename them all a once and not Individually. This is not an app issue so I gave it 5 stars.
  • Luv the APP 5/5

    By Ghirt
    Easy to use
  • Good App 5/5

    By Cibmog
    Surprisingly good app!
  • Great App! 5/5

    By Burt22
    This app is better than the website. It is east to add people, add records, and update family on the fly. The best part is that the tree travels with you and you can update when talking to family members. Great app!
  • Love the App 5/5

    By The One on One
    It is easier to use from a tablet. I love the changes,
  • Still some bugs 2/5

    By Rolfsword
    The last update deleted dozens of entries in my tree. Not good!!
  • Always Improving ! 5/5

    By Alexandra Dorian
    Had to cancel my membership, but I've been with Ancestry for 20+ years. I even had my DNA done. Since the very beginning, Ancestry's commitment to the worldwide community has always been impressive. Not only scouring, uncovering and recording lost records, its dogged intent to have the largest and most accurate database of almost everyone that have graced the world for whatever brief time they lived, is....well....staggering. But what has done it for me is something I believe is almost as important as the records, and that is its commitment to its member's ease of use. Throughout Ancestry's lineage as the leading genealogy website, whatever interface they used during it's growth was its focus on making genealogy understandable and easy to navigate. Genealogy can be daunting at best. Even for professional researchers. Ancestry has always made genealogy so accessible and it's ergonomic interfaces intuitive and incredibly......simple. You saw their commitment when they joined the app world. Clearly responsive to each generation, they have been constantly tweaking the app making it better all the time, clearly superior to any of its competitions. When one thinks genealogy, one thinks Ancestry. And as this reviewer is concerned, It's the only game in town.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By DMV58
    Really like the app, it's just right for use on my iPad!

    By LJpMcC
    I love having access to ancestry on phone, it's amazing!!!!
  • Review of ancestry by Tiplew 5/5

    By Tiplew
    A great website to discover your family that you didn't know you had. Sometimes I find it hard to maneuver around, but that's usually when I have a last name with various spellings of the last name. I have found unknown live cousins, I didn't know I had, that I have never heard of. It's nice to get together and share information.
  • Addictive 5/5

    By Lovemyharley
    I love having "ancestry " on my phone. It allows me to do searches from anywhere, doctor's office, work on breaks, etc. Con- that's easy - it allows you to do searches from anywhere 😉
  • Family 4/5

    By UmmAbdulkhaaliq
    I just found a cousin on here I guess it works. I think it would work better if I paid the money.
  • Have Enjoyed 4/5

    By Sheco52
    I have enjoyed using this app very much. I do find when I want to make a complicated entry or correction then the web site is better. However, this mobile app is so much quicker and when I am at an appointment waiting or just half watching tv I can pick this up and address new hints and add new info quickly. I love that it is so handy and I do not have to make notes and wait to enter when I get home. Also when I'm visiting a relative I can pull up their info and fill in some blanks while we visit. It is so handy. Do get errors to often mainly when off site. Would like to see that improve.
  • Great for a quick view 5/5

    By MindyM_Ky
    I prefer my laptop for doing serious research. This app, however, is awesome when you just need a quick look at an ancestors family. Or checking out the latest hints. I also find it easy to maneuver when looking at DNA matches. Great job Ancestry!
  • OK not great 3/5

    By Fyrfytr11111111111111111
    Gets the job done but it is hard to compare documents side by side when you need to. If you have the information memorized or written down this will work great for you. I love it otherwise in all other areas!
  • The app needs some work 3/5

    By MJR5783
    I love what I've been able to discover about my family on, but the phone app is not as easy to maneuver.
  • Love Ancestry 5/5

    By Carey’s iphone/Mac
    Convenient and easy to use. Love the photos I find from others
  • The BEST ancestry search tool 5/5

    By Wordsmithqueen
    This app has been the key to me continuing to research my family lines. I continue to be amazed that I have such ease with this app. I highly recommend this app. I have tried others but was not as impressed with the records banks nor the ease of use.
  • Love it. 5/5

    By Musicmaker62
    To go from the days of sitting in a library for hours on end, or a courthouse, to today being able to take my family tree with over 20,000 people wherever I go in my pocket is truly wonderful!
  • Having fun with Ancestry 5/5

    By Chauncy58
    Found out way more than I thought It's fun try it
  • I Love it 5/5

    By 702T
    It's helping me learn my family tree which I've always wanted to do
  • The best app for genealogy 5/5

    By GailRam
    I love the Ancestry app. It has helped me with my genealogy research and is a very useful and fun way to organize your family tree!
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Criddler
    I can sit on my sofa and update my family tree. I can review hints of birth certificates and marriage documents right from my phone. Plus I have my tree at all times if I see family. Cool!
  • Family tree now truly portable 5/5

    By Jimmyboy bobsters
    I had been working on my tree during breaks on my iPhone. However this is just amazing. Thanks for the updates!!!
  • Great 5/5

    By Kynnyth
    As think it's as good as it can be on this platform.
  • Very handy 5/5

    By Sinsinatus
    Have been using for over a year and they keep adding functionality that actually helps. The upgrades haven't been just flair. Great app for impromptu research sessions or just a portable way to share you research. Would like to see them add functionality from the Shoebox app in the future.
  • App has taken me a long way 4/5

    By CoralCruiser
    First the app seems to be better than any other apps I've tried. This app and a little additional research of gotten back to original pricing and 1350 near Nottingham England. As others have mentioned it would be interesting to have a map tool that would let you see where ancestors had lived and showed their movement overtime. The app adds some historical events of relevance but it would be nice to pick and choose from other historical events that might have more relevance to your family.
  • Works well 5/5

    By Estbnr
    Works well.
  • Good for on-the-go 5/5

    By blabala
    I usually use Ancestry on the desktop, but sometimes the app is so nice to have on my iPad or phone. I noticed that apparently some people that DNA kits for their Christmas presents, because suddenly I have more matches for first cousins! I just noticed it on my commute today, and will write them right away.
  • Functional and convenient 5/5

    By Dr. Jekyll
    I've had this app for a while, and it has gotten much better over time. It is convenient and easy to use, does everything I need it to do. Yes, there's a benefit to using the website on a computer, but no need on a mobile device.
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By Stevenson2013
    Just started using this app and have put together my family tree back to my great grand parents. Fun and insightful!
  • Connecting with family 5/5
