  • So much fun!

    I’ve enjoyed adding 400 relatives to my family tree, going back to the late 1500’s. It’s been fun and telling to find new people and facts on Ancestry.
  • Good app

    By Astro-computer
    Very good app, IF you are an Ancestry member. Sometimes it might be necessary to go to the web page, but this will do most routine things.
  • App crashing

    By NothingToday
    Since the app was updated recently it now refuses to open on my iPhone 6S running iOS 11.1.2 Hope the developers can repair the ancestry app soon. Disappointed it was not available to me at thanksgiving dinner with extended family.
  • Growing family tree

    By Gensolo1971
    Ancestry app has helped me to keep track of my growing family tree. I just wish finding out clues didn’t cost me. Getting a document, yes. Just knowing what the info is, no.
