Fun app - have to take a harder look, but hey we are all related somehow 😉
Doesn't work without Facebook 1/5
I don't have a Facebook account, so I to use a fake account to access the app. The results were zero. And now the app is deleted.
Amazing & Fun 5/5
By Fulana Banana
Very interesting and fun to see this information! Just goes to show you that as immigrants to this country and the melting pot process, we’re almost all related!
No longer getting matches 1/5
I’m frustrated. I used to get at least one match every day, and would match with Facebook friends. Nearly the past week, I have not received any matches. That wouldn’t be so odd, if the friends FB that match me don’t match until they match me first. This was never that way, and now it’s frustrating. I’ve broken a lot of brick walls, and it’s frustrating that it suddenly stopped working. It’s also just spinning, Ancestry is telling us to leave a comment on the feedback, but I have friends that have been waiting more than 54 weeks for a response. That’s a bit ridiculous when Ancestry is telling f is to log issues here, but no response is received. Thinking of canceling.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I downloaded this app 3 days again, it still saying “hang in there, we’re working on it”. It doesn’t work.
I DON’T USE FACEBOOK 1/5
Fun App 5/5
Being an avid genealogist, this is a really fun site to show how one could possibly be related to famous people.
Apparently I am related to Bill Clinton Michelle Obama Snoop Dogg and Eminem
App used to work....not anymore. 1/5
By Good Chango
Not sure what’s going on with the app. Suddenly stopped giving updates. Won’t show any of the previous relations the app had found. Not getting response from in-app contact us/feedback. Too bad. I was really enjoying the app.
It’s cool 5/5
I think it’s cool how they find distant related celebs. My family tree doesn’t always match but it’s still cool.
Scans, Scans, Scans scans annnnnddd nothing. Apparently this app has not worked since 9/07/2018. So I wouldn’t suggest downloading.
Can someone please fix this app 2/5
Please fix this app.
Facebook access required? 1/5
By Photo Idaho
Downloaded this app and tried to use it. It requires a connection to Facebook or it won’t work. No matter what I tried, there was no way around the mandatory Facebook connection.
I deleted the app after 15 minutes to trying to use without Facebook. Epic failure.
It’s great for someone like my husband whose lineage goes back to 16-1700s in the US. For a descent of more recent immigrants, like me, whose people came in the 1850s-80s, not so great. Be careful of the matches. Be sure to verify. Found some errors.
Pretty cool 4/5
It is an interesting app. I was surprised by the connections.
We’re Related 5/5
By NY Smarty
It is a thoroughly entertaining app and though I can’t prove the validity of my famous cousins, I hope to one day verify the connections with dna.
It’s a fun app, but PLEASE check the facts before you add the lines to your tree. There is a lot of misinformation in people’s trees that gets pulled into it.
Also, when Facebook was hacked last week, I had to re-sign in. I have two Facebook pages and apparently signed in using the wrong one. Now I cannot get the app to connect to my tree on ancestry as it says it’s attached to another copy of “We’re Related” and I can’t delete the new profile or log into the original one.
Can someone from the app help me? No one got back to me through the app (posted a week ago) and the developer help on here is not working.
They don't use your DNA 1/5
I thought they would compare my DNA to the DNA celebrities have also submitted. Apparently they just want you to promote them on social media. Very disappointing.
I am enjoying the possibility of being related to prominent past and present history makers. I would like some of the matches to be closer than 7/8th cousins.
Requires Facebook 1/5
By Shepherd Commander
I don’t have a Facebook account and refuse to create one; however, this app requires access to it.
We’re related 1/5
By Kevin's Gmom
Recently started requiring Facebook login to utilize app.
I’m shocked to discover I’m related to Michael Jackson, Derek Jeter, Demi Lovato, Kanye West and Bill Clinton— all out of a single line. I suspect I’m related to Jim Nabors as well, but his name didn’t show up and there’s no search available for new people.
Will not work 1/5
Would love to give this app a try but after uploading it to my iPad, it just freezes up upon opening.
We’re Related 5/5
I get excited now, every time I see, We’re Related, pop up on my screen! I love meeting new cousins. I’ve had some really good conversations and made some of the best cousin connects!
Waste of Time and App Space 2/5
By G'ma V
Wanted to like this app, but it has been a major disappointment. Seems to focus on linking you to current celebrities; not significant historical figures. Keep getting pop-up boxes asking for a thumbs up or thumbs down; then when you respond it will not let you enter comments when asked for them.
Not working 1/5
Very disappointed. I've yet to use the app because once I open it the app freezes and my iPad continuously shows the loading symbol. I can't even open the settings where it shows I have a notification. Only thing that "worked" was opening the app.
I can’t even get past the sign in page.
No historical connections 1/5
This app used to give great historical relationships that were interesting and helpful. Now all I get are contemporary connections and most are of entertainers or recent presidents and First Ladies. What happened to the authors, founding fathers, and others who contributed value to our society- or even the notorious ones? A total waste of time now. I’m tired of the Clinton, Obama, Miley Cyrus, Eminem notices.
Great Resource! 5/5
I so enjoy this app. It gives my wo
Apparently we’re all 9th cousins of Carrie Underwood and Abraham Lincoln.
There is no way this is accurate. Said I’m related to Donald Trump, Michele and Barack Obama, said they are my 8th and 9th cousins... also Justin Bieber is my 8th cousin..
Great fun 5/5
Interesting Finds 5/5
I’m loving finding all my distant relatives
The more friends, the more fun! 5/5
This app works well if you have a good basic tree on Ancestry. I have found it valuable in leading me to extended cousins and building my tree. Seems to have a lot of errors at times, but it just takes a little more research in those cases. I find it most helpful to add friends that are also following the We’re Related group page on Facebook. The more friends you have on Facebook who also have Ancestry interests, the more matches you will find. I have more Facebook cousins than celebrities now! Definitely fun to check into. Keep it for awhile to see what happens. It helps to sign out & back in occasionally, and “recalculate” for new matches.
Slow calculating. 5/5
Love the app, but sometimes it takes a long time to calculate and I have a few people I may be related to that aren't showing up in my list on my phone but rather on theirs.
We’re Related 5/5
By Azalea Lady
I love this app!! This app has helped me get through places that I have been stuck on in my family trees for years. I think everyone should try this app. You will love it. !!!!
Fun- I’ve been able to document most of these- it’s been helpful filling in some blanks as well. It also makes me smile a lot. There are a couple of famous folks I’ve documented as relatives that it’s missed- and I have the records- I keep waiting for this app to find them!
Facebook Requirement!! 1/5
This app will not let you use it without giving consent to use your FaceBook. You have to sign into it via Facebook!! Not everyone has Facebook, nor would I want everyone knowing my business.
Very disappointed in this new requirement. Have totally quit using this app.
Very entertaining 5/5
Now quite sure how I’m going to verify the findings but it’s funny as heck!
Easy Does It 3/5
We're Related offers a simple to follow interface. Missing is a disclaimer that the relationship pathways are solely dependent upon user trees, too often fraught with suppositions and lacking solid references. I have discovered over a hundred people in whom I am fairly confident of the relationship, though. It just pays to analyze the pathway after inputting it into your own tree at Ancestry, or elsewhere. The more your tree is built, the more possible matches. It would be nice to be able to do dynamic sorts within the app, or even set up groups to classify the links. Most are distant cousins, but it is still fun to find notables who you otherwise wouldn't have known a relationship exists. Make sure you're logged into the Facebook profile that matches your user tree, though.
Doesnt work...Freezes 1/5
I have tried and re-tried to download this app.
simply put...it does not load or work.
Pretty interesting 3/5
It’s pretty interesting, but it’s difficult to confirm what it says if you don’t already know your family tree.
Very entertaining, but could be better 4/5
This is a great app to store all of your family data and see people who might be distantly related to you! I only have one major issue that I hope is fixed soon or else I won’t be buying an ancestry kit. I wish you could add more relatives on your family tree than just great grandparents. Then the relative predictions would be so much more accurate! If the producers of this app are reading this please make that a mission! Thank you. And I’ll continue recommending and using this app, thanks!
Fun App 4/5
My husband and I enjoy seeing the latest person we are related to. However, I wish it could separate the people from my tree and my husband’s tree.
We’re Reated 1/5
Unable to install. Have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Unable to get help.
Amazing how many people we are related to. If your ancestors came to this continent in the early 1600’s you may be related to most of the presidents and many other politicians, as I am. Not hard to see why families don’t get along when you are related to both Clinton’s, both Obama’s, both Bushes and Trump. Anybody else out there have such a situation?
This is a fun app. I look forward to getting notifications. However, before you brag to your friends or blindly add some celebrity to your tree, do you due diligence. I have found about 25% I can verify, 25% have some type of error in them, and 50% I just can’t easily find the supporting information to tell one way or the other. And I am starting with a massive tree that goes back 12 generations in a lot of cases, so the bad match tends to be in the celebrity’s tree. But since these links are culled from other trees, these rules apply to copying data from other trees in general.
Some improvements I would like to see: I would like to see the corresponding non-direct mother or father for each generation. This would help with verification. Also, it would be nice if I could write and save notes about each celebrity/person of interest. You can mark a celebrity’s tree as bad, but sometimes I am just not sure.
Wouldn’t work 1/5
By Doogie Hauser
Downloaded the app and it wouldn’t let me do anything. Just kept spinning when I clicked the get started tab. So I deleted it from my device.
