  • Many years user

    By allisonk55
    I have been using Ancestry for many years, first at the Library, then purchased and gifted, now free because I’m LDS. It just keeps getting better and better! It helped me so much! What I would please like to know is why I am being charged for records if I am a member?

    Love using it! Works beautifully. Lots of fun, too.
  • Better than desktop in some ways

    By Markfarkl
    In looking at your hints, you can select hints for direct ancestors only. The desktop version does not offer that functionality. My only criticism is sometimes it freezes after accepting a photo hint.
  • Addicting!

    I love this app! It’s clear & intuitive. I can review hints at anytime, look at the source records, & add them to my tree. I rely on it to look up people wherever I am & it’s invaluable at family gatherings (like Thanksgiving!).
  • Easy to use and very effective

    Easy to use, effective, very helpfully all the way from finding relatives to creating a print out of your ancestry

    I love the app, it’s great because it is easy to you, it is convenient too, you always have your phone or tablet with so when info comes along it is at your fingertips. When I have the time I still use FTM.
