Ancestry opens doors 5/5
My initial review on ancestry was a little underwhelming, but as I construct my family tree, this app is indicating hints and adding documents. I'm literally learning about my family as I go.
So Easy 5/5
This app is on all my devices and my info is always with me. Automatically updates across all devices. Works great with Family Tree Maker for Windows. Does same functions as windows version.
Amazing App 4/5
By Bob The Tech Guy
Ancestry has opened many doors in the course of my search for my family's history. I have had many questions answered and even more questions raised. The whole idea of accessing my family's history via the Internet is amazing. I wish the fees were more affordable for those of us on fixed income. I took one star off for pricing.
I LOVE IT! 5/5
I’m a 10 year old girl who LOVES family trees. I know that my family is mostly Western-European and (on the paternal side) Jewish. I want to know who I am and Ancestry has helped a lot.
Anyway, I’ve been using the website for a long time. I just got the app today and it’s been amazing. But, like the website; it does have one flaw. I don’t like the fact that it can’t automatically add anything to your tree...
I’m trying to do the royal family tree (with ALL illegitimate children) and it’s pretty hard! Please make an update with a setting (that you can turn on/off) that can ask you if you mean a certain person and you can say yes or no. If you click yes it will auto-fill that person’s Birth, Marriage, etc.
Please make this update! It will help A LOT!!!!!
App crashes when it opens 5/5
App crashes all the time.

Great App 5/5
So wonderful to have everything with you and easy to se!
I love doing genealogical research and the app is a quick way to do it. I wish it had more features like the full site does, but I guess apps have limitations. So fun to discover your ancestry and the history surrounding it!
Great app 5/5
Adequate companion to the website if I am away from my laptop and need to do some research
Love Ancestry! 5/5
I love the Ancestry app. It’s just as easy to maneuver as the desktop version. I love being able to connect leaves & branches on my family tree!
Quite reliable information. Great!
Handy complement to desktop version 4/5
This app is precious to me for having helped me to piece together where I come from. It’s been quite a journey !!!
Great app 4/5

Love how ancestry keeps updating and making family history more and more accessible!
Pretty good 5/5
The regular ancestry.com works better, but this is ok in a pinch
Fun and helpful 5/5
When I️ was a kid, I️ enjoyed hearing stories from my grandparents about their childhood, their families, and what life used to be like. Now that my grandparents are no longer living, I️ still enjoy the adventure of learning about their families. I️ have discovered so much about the jobs, land ownership, number of children, etc. of my ancestors. I’ve discovered military service no one in my family knew about.
Is the app perfect? No. There are so things that are easier through the website on my laptop. But using the app on my phone is a great way to pass the time waiting at a doctor’s office, in the airport, showing family history to friends and family, etc.

I really love this app and the latest update is really good.
It’s getting better 4/5
It’s definitely better than when I first downloaded it. Love the new features and functionality. It was a surprise to see the relatives suggestions. One feature I’m still waiting for it’s the merge function of the website and a “duplicates search”feature. With those two the app quite complete. I also like the improved dna section. Looking forward to more features added in the near future.
I’ve been a member of Ancestry for quite a few years... and I’m loving this App.. I would recommend it to all who do Genealogy.
Great way to add photos! 5/5
It's really quick and easy to add photos to profiles through the app.
What happened to saving the hints 4/5
Previously I was able to save the hints and apply to my ancestors. But now, since I haven’t renewed my membership, I cannot. I take a break from my ancestry occasionally but would still like to add hints now and then. What happened?
Great app 5/5
Great for on the go information when talking to others
Easy to use 5/5
Grateful to be able to carry my family tree
By John Scott Hoff
This is the ultimate “go-to” app/site for anyone with a genealogy interest. It is easy to access & find ancestors.
By Love it more & more
I love the site. It’s so interesting finding my relatives. It’s so hard to pay so much for only 6mos. The time goes by so fast.
I find it very easy to use.
Great app to keep your ancestry close at hand
Good info 3/5
I hate that they try to make you pay for looking at records, especially thing that are public record and you can find with an internet search. I like that family members can add to your tree.
Good for my ipad 4/5
The app is good on my ipad, but I feel like it is kind of hard to navigate when using the search tool.
Handy for reference on the go. 4/5
Take your tree to the library or a conference on a tablet.
So addicting 5/5
Once you have a leaf...you want to know the whole tree!!
A superb tool for finding your past and enriching your present.
Commercial Truck driver 4/5

I like using the app, I like that one doesn’t have pay to use the app. It let me put my family information that had, and it let me see the matched information.
Easy to use. 5/5
Great mobile app..
fun to have but limited 3/5
you’ll need to do the “real work” of chasing ancestors with the full program on your desktop. the app lets you check new hints, but commands and functions are limited—and limiting
Filmore Varner SR (MO) 5/5
Great App Easy To Work With!
Not bad 3/5
Not bad for some quick fun but it is missing alot of the desktop functionality. A few things are easier on the phone. Using the app and desktop site together works the best
Thumbs up 5/5
Ancestry App 5/5
By Trench mom
Easy to use and navigate.
Use it frequently! 5/5
When ever I am away from my home computer I can always access this app instead of having to wait until I get home.
Essential family research tool 5/5
I have been a family researcher for many years. The app is very easy to use. It allows you to investigate each hint and make decision of wether to accept or reject the hint. The app makes it very easy to share you family tree with others.
Ancestry usage 3/5
I am thrilled with the records I’ve found. Ancestry has been a huge help in finding my ancestors. The site was given three stars because, records I found when I was a paying customer, are not available to me now that I don’t have a subscription. I believe records that I found should be always there for me. I should not have to pay to see them
By Barbara McDoodlebutt
Ever wanted to research your family this is the time it research’s the name and adds hints plus even estimates help
Great app 5/5

Easy going 5/5
Just started using the app as an adjunct to my laptop. So far it is pretty good. Thanks.
Great app 4/5
By Reagy Kat
Great app. Wish it was compatible with other raw dna results from other companies. There are some glitches but I’ve learned a lot from ancestry.
Very useful 5/5
It is beneficial to have family tree info while on the go. When visiting with relatives, questions frequently arise concerning genealogy. This app is very handy in those instances as well as when doing on the go research!
Too much info not all correct 3/5
Somehow it repeated two names in my tree but titled them a different title and I could not delete this. Also I am a little overwhelmed with the relatives I think I will have to cut down on listing everything because it’s taking up too much room on my phone.
