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.
The 777 Child 5/5
7th Cousin with Obama and Kennedy
6th or 8th Cousins to current Republicans
Great Granddaughter to Top Freemasonry leaders in England and Early America.
I’m a Catholic AND Royalty
For if God is for us, whom shall come against us?
Interesting & Accurate! 4/5
I have an extensive family tree & decided to give it a try to compare. Seems accurate based on my tree & research!! If you’re surprised to be related to someone that another friend is, it’s probably because America’s population was very small for the first 100 years of immigration. You can always do the research to confirm either way!
Deleted it 1/5
Sign-in is via Facebook which then appears to marry your FB data with ancestry.con data it pulls in your regular email address phone number at FB and appears to pull your ancestry information DNA data. I trust ancestry.com but not this app that may give Facebook access to the data, they I do not trust given their historical gaffs, recent revelations and leader if the movie Social Network was near accurate. A private data breach is not worth knowing if I’m related to a celebrity. Ancestry must clarify if FB gains their data because it appears they do.
Please use my information 3/5
I wish they use the information from my ancestry tree. I only had 3 common relatives from Facebook that already known about.
Will not work 1/5
Just will not work period. I click get started and it never moves. Disappointing.
Why Do I Need Facebook to use this app? 1/5
I don’t see where it says you Must have and use a Facebook account to use this app.
We’re Related 4/5
Fun program - shows how small the world is.
Uses incorrect trees and Send Feedback fails 1/5
My app is giving me matches for people who are not relatives in my tree.
I sent feedback through the app which connected me to Ancestry. The support rep from Ancestry said I need to contact We’re Related... I DID! THROUGH THE APP! I sent that back. They repeated that I need to send feedback through “Send Feedback” in We’re Related. I don’t know how many times I need to tell them THAT IS WHAT I DID.
Your apps are clearly broken and need to be fixed. Your support reps need to listen to customers instead of telling them they are doing the wrong thing.
Waste of time 1/5
This is really a joke app, it’s just a conversation piece to laugh. If you are serious about genealogy, forget this crap and go dig into civil records and family memories.
I have been using this app for a week now, so far it has presented me with very far fetched assumptions and curiously all the relatives presented always connect through the same branch of my family tree, even though I have a tree developed in all branches up to the 7th generation before me.
Join people. This is fun 5/5
Excellent source of genealogy.
Enjoying the We’re Related app 4/5
By Mrs. Soares
Other than the save button not working when turning off trees, it works pretty well. I enjoy seeing all the different names come up of who I’m possibly related to.
A fun app 5/5
If you do ancestry.com, this is a fun add on.
Love this app 5/5
By Word Striken 4
Fun to see what famous people are in your family tree. My whole family has enjoyed it!
By no crash test dummy
App is wildly glitchy, crashes each and every time I open it. Hangs on the opening screen for what seems an eternity then shuts down. I’ve yet to get this app to work.
Cool Ancestry App 5/5
It’s a cool app. The best part is the genealogy hints that tell you where to look on your family tree to determine if you’re related.
If your seriously researching your tree:
It helped me iron out what I thought was a mis-spelling in the lineage; but, it turned out, the two similar surnames married one another. I needed to pull all the records in, not choose between them.
Wish it updated from my tree more frequently.
Great fun! 4/5
I don’t really take these supposed relationships seriously. But their trail can seem to help give some names to TRY when I hit a wall in my authentic research. But it gives some fun conversation points. And can show that people of many colors have shared ancestry, which is something we should own up to. We are family!
By kalme willow
I’ve been a member of ancestry for years and have had my DNA ancestry checked. I use all other ancestry apps except this one and it says unarthorized log in on my iPhone and on my previous Samsung, it would not let me in there either. This is the only app I’ve not been able to use. It gives me no opportunity to register and it does connect my Facebook. What could be causing it to do this? Everyone I know enjoys this app. It’s becoming frustrating.
Doesn't work on iPad pro. 1/5
Just hangs... no signs of life. Seems OK on iPhone X...
I've downloaded and installed this app. It goes through the allowing Facebook access then opens to a blank screen with a few tabs at the bottom. It seems stuck on the hint tab. The app is frozen there. I can't select any of the other tabs.
Fun to see 4/5
This app shows a photo of the possible well-known match, trees of you and your possible match back to the common ancestor and a bio of of that match. You will need to verify the accuracy with your own research, since the app doesn’t list any sources.
Fun app, but one hilarious flaw 3/5
By Alfonso dG
For some reason, even though it lists me as my mother’s son, when I click to confirm the relationship it tries to make her and me both children of myself — that is, we both have me as a common ancestor!
We’re related app 5/5
Best app to maintain family contacts and names for future research.
Amazing app 5/5
You may think this is just a trick to make you think your related to famous people, but it’s not! I looked at every person it said in my family that leads up to someone (and their correct) and then I looked up on google the famous persons family tree and they lead up to that person too so THIS IS A LEGIT APP!!! Download this right now if you want to find out who your related to!
Requires Facebook 1/5
Enough said. I’m already paying for an Ancestry membership. I shouldn’t have to join Facebook to use the app.
Great use of app 5/5
This app is awesome! Not only has helped me find out who I’m related too but it has also, helped me fill in some of the blanks I have had. Thank you, it has been a great tool as well as very
Love but I can’t log back in!! 2/5
I love this app and found out Julia Roberts is my cousin but for some reason it logged me out and won’t let me log back in. Please help and fix this.
Fun and interesting 5/5
This app is so much fun because you see who you are possibly related to- both people on Facebook who are your friends and famous people both current celebrities and older famous people. It’s fun!
Requires fb login 1/5
By Thunder Dream
This is why I uninstalled. I distrust fb logins.
Interesting leads 5/5
The suggestions are not always accurate, but it does provide some interesting leads an information in their links that they provide to different historical figures and celebrities.
Nice to have confirmation 👍🏼 5/5
Several of the relatives were a confirmation, there are a few surprises for sure. All in all, it’s an enjoyable app that will make you smile, or totally knock your socks off!! Loads of fun to share with the fam jam 🎉
By Beautifully Younique
Mind blowing. This app is. Found out Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, Darek jete, and few others are related in some way. Pretty cool actually. I never would have imagined.
Must use Facebook to sign in 😡😡😡 1/5
What they don’t bother to tell you on this page, at least I didn’t see it anywhere, is that you have to have a Facebook account. Would not let me sign on without it. I do not use Facebook and do not ever plan on using it.
Spinning, spinning... 1/5
Open App, spins, spins...crashes. Rinse and repeat. App support link goes to a not found page. And yes, I have a fully paid Ancestry account with all the bells and whistles.
Distant family members 5/5
By deb unger
This app help me find many distant ancestors who I have been searching for that was without any luck because no DNA trace.
Won’t open 1/5
Just locks up.
This is a fun app. Interesting & surprising results. Would be nice to know if a professional genealogist did the family tree for the people listed. (Maybe it says in the small print somewhere I didn’t read yet).
All I get is a blank screen 1/5
I’ve downloaded the app twice, and all I get is a blank screen. I try to click on the icons, but nothing happens. Very disappointing!
Only login option is through Facebook! Why? 1/5
I avoid apps that want me to login with Facebook. I don't understand how logging in with Facebook would show me who I'm related to. From comments I've seen, it shows the same celebrities for everyone.
We’re related 4/5
By Moi Moi Moi
This is such a cool idea. What I don’t understand is why the app doesn’t just pull our tree and tell us. Instead we have to start over. My tree has over 4,000 people on it. I don’t feel like recreating it! No matter who I choose, I get the same matches. So yes, it’s fun, but I am waiting for refinements.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Blank screen and crashes. Glad the app is free.
Great idea - but they have killed it 1/5
By TT Karo
I loved this and shared it with many, encouraging new interests in genealogy. However, NOW the app is demanding you open it through Facebook, which opens all your friends - totally unaware that you have done this - to something THEY did not ask to be a part of. I have been a full member of Ancestry for many years, but I refuse to force my friends into this. I DO NOT recommend this program to anyone now. I warn them about it. It’s not enough that we open our personal family history to the world and pay for the privilege. Now they want to kidnap your friends list too. I don’t think so.
Needs to sign in through your Facebook account 1/5
Needs to sign in through your Facebook account. No! Not doing it.
For now 1/5
Doesn’t work for me I don’t use Facebook other than that looks cool
Great app 4/5
I really enjoy this app. Have been having fun with searching and verifying lines they suggest i might be related to. I would suggest maybe adding in how you are able to determine a match to a cousin via a female ancestor without a last name. How are you able to make that connection? I haven’t had a chance to enjoy this app in the last 2 weeks as i haven’t had any matches come in. I’ve gone through the steps of what should have fixed the app, and still not getting matches. Hopefully issue can be fixed so i can enjoy this wonderful app again :)
App problem to connect 5/5
By jim horn
Have been using it for a couple of months. Was providing good entertainment of possible famous people. All of a sudden the app has a problem and wants to start all over again with a setup today. Was working fine yesterday. Anyone else had this problem?
Can someone please fix this app 3/5
Lots of bad information 2/5
I’ve gotten about 80+ “matches” but most of them were wrong based on erroneous information put into ancestry. No one has parents who were 9 or 10 years old when they were born. A child born in Virginia did not have parents born and died in Rhode Island and all other siblings born in Rhode Island. I did have some real matches which was great but it took hours to verify each one
For fun 5/5
Not sure how accurate but fun
Very fun 5/5
I did a DNA test, got a membership through ancestry, and have been tinkering away at our family tree. This app truly answers the question “am I related to anyone famous?” I verified the research by entering the people onto my tree on my laptop while having this app on my phone, and it all pans out. Michelle Obama is my 7th cousin :o)
