    Excellent app that allows me to add family members and information about them to my family tree. Still pretty new at it and a little difficulty in using other members’ trees, but great otherwise. The Hints are very helpful and I like how “notes” can be added in the app. This helps me to go back and reference at a later date, the thoughts I put in.
  • So helpful

    The app is good but still lacks some function that is available in the browser app.
  • Family history

    Love it. Finding out a lot about my family history. Only downside is you have to pay for every bit of information.

    Excellent way to fill in the gaps when you have a min. Let’s face it ... it will take time and some dedication to discover your story.
  • Ancestry Valuable for Genealogy Research

    By KokoHost
    A membership with is really worth it if you are into genealogy research, especially if you take the whole package. The app is useful to be able to do research without having to take a computer with you or having a heavier laptop on your lap for several hours. However, it does have a few glitches that won’t allow you to do everything. But, I find they are very few and you can always take care of those situations when you access the site using your computer. By the way, it IS very easy to get wrapped up in doing genealogy for several hours. I don’t recommend using a phone screen; you need at least a tablet sized screen.

  • Great App!!

    By fowlball40
    I’ve been using the app with a membership for over a year, and I still think it’s incredible that I’m able to compare my DNA results and tree to other members in the database. The phone app has many easy to use features, cuts my research time down a lot.
  • Fun and Intriguing
