  • Surprisingly full featured, and very easy to use

    I assumed that to do anything complicated would require the use of a PC. But I’ve found I can do anything I’ve wanted via the iPhone app... and it’s amazingly easy. Well done!
  • It's my go to research tool!

    I love this app - it rounds out and balances my subscription to the entire Ancestry website. I use it on the go every time I have a free bit of time!

  • Simple and addictive

    I have learned more about my family in an hour then I knew my whole life. The application is very simple to use and informative. Hopefully there are abundant records for your family. Oddly enough I can’t find any records for myself. I definitely recommend.
  • Love Ancestry

    By Lynn in Georgia
    I am very grateful to have had the experience of using in finding out about the history of my family. For those of you who have relatives who wont share or cant share stories about relatives, WELL THIS IS WHERE YOU GO! I have really enjoyed the experience. I have made many friends that helped me to fill in the gaps of my search. In turn, I have been able to assist others whose searches were at a dead end...together, we are ALL A FAMILY. Thank you ancestry ❤️
  • Improved GREATLY in last 2 years, love it now!
