    ancestry is truly magnificent and informative. I have had a true learning experience about who and were I came from through my searches. It never ceases to amaze me the information and Data I find on my families history. Thank you for such a fantastic app.
  • Best Genealogy App

    By Ribcrickett
    This app is almost as great as’s website. The only thing that could make it better is see the same connections and other information from the hints that you get through the website itself. I get that it can’t do as much because it’s downsized but it is improving. The app is great for someone who can’t sit in front of a computer for hours at a time. I have grown my tree extensively through this app. Thank you Ancestry for continuously improving this tool.

    Helpful but sometimes contradictory
  • Needs a bit of tweaking though

    I find it a little bit difficult to add pics
  • Quattlebaum

    By skquattl
    I’ve always been a history buff and having a last name that is easily traceable doesn’t hurt. There is a FACEBOOK page called Quattlebaum Nation that posts family history items.

    Awesome site
  • App almost as good as online version

    By ShannonsAunt
    The ancestry app is great! Unlike most programs, the app is almost as good as the computer version. Sometimes I find more answers on the app! Ancestry in general is so good, but this app is an added bonus.
  • The iPhone Ancestry App is handy!

    By PhillyManJim
    While I like the full Ancestry app on my PC where I do serious research, I find the mobile app quite useful for reference while on the go. I can even look at old source documents and quickly answer questions posed by family members. I even use this app to update my tree with info from “hints”. I love this app!

    It would be perfect if I could access my ancestry account to research otherwise it is a very useful app for what it provides.
