We’re related app 5/5
I love this app! It has really helped me in my genealogy.
We’Re Related 4/5
Good leads for researching lines but must be checked. About 35-40% if mine are correct ; another 30% have issues, but are still issues.
Functionality is not the best. Completely lost about 40 leDs once and have to delete and reload each time I want new lead now.
Pretty cool! 5/5
By Babalouie Music
Pretty cool app that puts a lot of possibilities at your fingertips!

Even though I don’t fully believe, all of this I realize that it is truly possible, and it also is a lot o fun.
Nasty Mandatory Link to Facebook 1/5
By Property miser
Have used this app for 2 years and found it a valuable resource to build my tree in Ancestry - to which I pay a hefty annual subscription. The app helped substantially expand my and keep my interest in subscribing to Ancestry. With the May 2018 update there's a mandatory linking of your information to your Facebook account. Ugh! Not a great time to share even more info online. Very disappointed!!
Crashes and loses everything 1/5
Do far this happened twice: Something causes the app to crash ad it prompts me to set it up. Of course all the connections it had made are gone and so it takes weeks and months to rebuild it. So, worthless. I see that other people have had similar issues, reported them, and heard nothing back. So, we have a buggy app with no support. Not good. Maybe I’ll try it again sometime but for now there’s really no point. I hope everyone else had better luck with it.
Why doesn’t it work 1/5
Have tried to download a few times, keeps locking up and does nothing. Frustrating
This app is mostly BS 1/5
I liked this app until it started throwing in a bunch of democratic politicians as possible relatives.
Facebook Dependent 1/5
It would be nice if the description of this app included the fact that it doesn’t work unless you have a Facebook account.
Great app 5/5
I’m very pleased with the app. Rate it 5 stars. Not sure though if it looks through one tree per site visit though or all.
Fun diversion 3/5
Unverified information from public trees but still fun. Don’t like that a recent update now forces login via Facecrook login. What was wrong with using my Ancestry login? Deleted the app.
Why do you all of a sudden need access to my Facebook. There seems to be no way to opt out so I am finished with it.
Irritating and aggravating 1/5
So aggravating so very aggravating when you can’t link your Facebook profile with a different email address to an ancestry account with another one it is literally so aggravating
Entertaining, but extremely inaccurate 2/5
If you know another person who uses this app, you can compare your daily “celebrities”, and you’ll quickly see you and your friend are getting almost the exact same ones. They may be a few days apart, but if this app can find any way to say you’re related to someone, no matter how improbable, it will make the connection. It doesn’t matter that the given date of birth would make a woman FIVE YEARS OLD when her alleged “offspring” was born. Out of the 40+ celebrities this app has given me, even a cursory attempt to verify the connection has shown all but 4 of them are completely inaccurate. Even if you give the ancestor pathway a thumbs down for being inaccurate, the app still continues to send you more notifications using the exact same wrong information. If you’ve been using it already, see if these names look familiar: Marilyn Monroe, Barack Obama, Lady Gaga, George Washington, Kanye West, Chris Evans, Abraham Lincoln... these are only a few of the ones my friends and I have all gotten.
Also, there is supposed to be a way to compare your family tree to that of a friend on Ancestry, it doesn’t work. Regardless of how many times you and your friend send invitations to each other and accept them, no one ever shows up on your list if friends using the app. There is no support for this app, either. Zero.
Why the Facebook link required? 1/5
I enjoyed this app for quite some time until recently when I can no longer get into the App without allowing it access to my Facebook. Why is this now required? So it went from a 4-5 star rating down to 1 and I will likely be deleting it
WORKED GREAT, BUT SOMETHING HAPPENED WITH LAST UPDATE! 4/5
Worked great until a few days ago when the app made me link again to my FaceBook page. Problem is I have 2 and it won’t let me link to the correct one. It wants to link to my business page. On my iPad it works fine because it gave me an option of which page to link. Please fix! Thanks.
Others in some of my genealogy groups are having the same problem.
How about Email??? 1/5
I don’t have Facebook!😢😡
Looks really fun 4/5
Love ancestry. Got this app but it’s not working. Unless it’s the weather interfering or something 😭hope it works
I could care less about 9th cousin 3 X removed. Then when I have to join Facebook to use the app. was when I didn’t need it.
App for whatever reason wont work on my phone 1/5
This app worked on my iPhone 5 but won’t work on iPhone X. My internet is working fine my Facebook is fine. Contacted everyone but no one has an answer on how to fix it.
So Facebook can have more data... 1/5
REQUIRES a linked Facebook account to use the app. Nope.
App no longer works 1/5
App no longer works since the recent update. It’s broken.
Twelve years of family research 5/5
By Cyber Security Group
The App is based upon members of your family tree, I’ve ever taken a DNA test and it is spot on,I’m related to everyone famous, could not believe at first, so I kept at it researching day in day out and all I can say is WOW!
Won’t Open 1/5
I’ve tried several times to open this app, but nothing happens. Waste of time.
Surprisingly correct 5/5
I just downloaded the app and got five matches with minutes. All five matches were on my father’s side and I know the family tree is correct. If indeed the family tree of the famous person is correct, it’s kind a neat to know who I’m distantly related to.
The least impressive part of this is the famous relative part. You can track how you connect to that common ancestor, and it fills in huge holes.
Support isn’t responding. 3/5
Having trouble getting support to respond to me.
Finding to WHOM I’m linked in time is AWESOME!!
Needs work 2/5
I was having fun with it at first but then when I added a more detailed tree to the app it erased all of the new relationships that had shown up. Now two days later it’s slowly adding them back only one per day which is extremely annoying. It’s stupid that I have to wait for it to update them all back when it stupidly only does one a day. Just give me all of them not one a day.
It is so fun to discover those persons with whom you share an ancestry. It gives a sense of pride of the good type, encouraging me to be my best self for my own descendants.
Another Facebook Data Collector? 1/5
Try logging on to this and seeing if your personal data gets vacuumed into a Facebook server and you name surfaces after another breach? Several years ago Ancestry had similar software, being able to trace your name and link it to popular personalities! They deleted the software claiming it wasn’t accurate and had too many flaws. With some genealogy and Cemetery websites data companies are collecting your personal history and selling it on the other end making millionaires out of these fraudsters. When legislators get involved none of them know how the App works...Truly the Blind Leading the Blind!
It’s ok 3/5
By Nick eye
Would be more legit if it went on Dna matches instead of the family tree because too many incorrect matches have been made because some people do not have their tree set up correct with the correct people in it so it makes incorrect connections.
App will not open 1/5
This app will not connect with Facebook and allow you to sign in. There is no troubleshooting either. I’ve downloaded it and deleted it about ten times and I get the same error authenticating message every time. Fix your bugs!
THIS APP IS GREAT! 5/5
By Digging Roots
I am really enjoying this app and learning of the people it finds for me that I am related to. It finds names that I may never be able to because of the time and effort that it would take me to find them if I ever would. I am so grateful for their effort in my behalf! Anyone that is interested in their family history will enjoy this app very much!
RUBY ESTEPP TIMMONS
Easy to navigate and fun 5/5
By Judy in Hawaii
I was delighted to learn I might be related to Michelle Obama.
Really? Facebook? 1/5
Just deleted this app and gave it one star, for ONE reason. It will no longer let me log in unless it’s through Facebook! Seriously? With all the junk about Facebook apps and privacy? No thank you. A fun app I’ll live without now.
Genealogy Fun 4/5
Fun to get results that aren’t proven or verifiable but the best genealogy laugh. We really are all connected.
By Sister Cousin
we are all related! If you go back far enough we are all brothers and sisters… So treat everyone as a treasured member of your family…
Really liking this now that I have some historical matches! 5/5
I had no results for the longest time, but just got about six since yesterday. Most are through the same branch of the family, but it’s great to see the possible relationships with names I’ve heard of for most of my life.
Why FB to login now??? BOOOOOO! 1/5
I was loving this app until it logged me out and tried to force me to login with FB. Umm, no thank you. Why can’t I sign in using email anymore? Major fail. Disappointed. Deleting app.
We’re definitely NOT related 1/5
I don’t know what kind of algorithm this app uses, but the ‘matches’ it’s come up with for me are pretty absurd. For example, it matched me as a ‘6th cousin’ to famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The issue is that she is black, and I am very, very white, which is confirmed by my Ancestry DNA test. I would love to be related to this woman, but the science says otherwise.
As for the other matches, I can’t find anyone in my tree (which is extensive, going back to at least the 15th century) that jibes with the trees of the alleged relatives that WereRelated has suggested.
I think it’s kind of a scam.
Rating based solely on my experience. 1/5
The concept of this app is entertaining. However I’ve had this app for a few months now and I still don’t have ANY relatives? Two of my friends have endless pages of possible well known relatives. I have zilch. I have a family tree started and did the AncestryDNA kit and got those results. But absolutely nothing on this app.
It's fun! I love it! 5/5
THIS APP DOESNT WORK 1/5
By Jern Ricks
First thing after I sign in I go to relatives and there is nothing!!! Then I look into the categories section and it says stuff like I'm related to 2 presidents or First Ladies, doesn't say who they are either!! This app apparently needs a lot of work and is not useful at all.
Will not work 1/5
App will not even open!
Won’t work 1/5
I downloaded the app, signed in with FB acct, and it just goes to the relative hints page and thinks... Have uninstalled & reinstalled several times with no luck. Not impressed!
Learning History on Family 5/5
Enjoyable experience learning all my history on my families, today, past, it's wonderful.
Please add a gmail login or email or ancestry account some people don’t have Facebook Please consider
We”re Related is lots of fun! 5/5
I am having a lot of fun with it. It is showing additional possible ancestors. Have fun!
Doesn’t Work 1/5
I have loaded this app several times on my iPad but after loading it does not open. Only spins
