  • This is AMAZING

    By J Ritro
    I had this void for the longest time. I had never even met my grandmother or grandfather. I am learning so much about where I came from. It’s extraordinary.
  • Very Good

    By Ekimac
    The mobile app has improved, but it’s still not as good as the (now discontinued) desktop program was. I so wish it would return. —The following was my review from a previous version.— If I could easily do everything with it that I can with the desktop version, it would be a 5+. That said, it's a great mobile app.
  • Do not trust this company

    By A good neighbor with a warning
    I used this app to view my dna results and it tricked me into paying for their near useless records cache for an absurd sum. This company flat out stole from me and will leave you on hold for hours when you try and call. I have seldom been more disgusted with a company. They are nothing but parasites. All of their competitors offer better services as well. Family search, 23 and me, National Geographic. Do not give ancestry a dime of your money under any circumstances
