  • Information

    By Don't use this site, ever
    Gives a good deal of it! Sometimes hard to follow. Would like more info on my other parent - although I know it would be difficult as it’s the Uraine.
  • Very useful!

    When with family or friends and the conversation about relatives comes up, this app is great! Just take out your phone/app and show people the tree, the connection, the history It’s all there!
  • Improving

    By The Smith Vineyard
    There are still many functions unavailable in the app, but it’s still very good. It is unsatisfactory that has not made it easier to access public information like birth records, marriage records and divorce records...
  • I’d give it 10 stars

  • Amazing

    By Epyogi
    Ancestry is amazing. While the app is not as user friendly as the website, it’s still pretty great. Learning about my family has changed my entire perspective. Highly recommend- but for the full experience you should use the website too.
  • Awesome App!
