    Super easy to use. Great views of family members as a list, pedigree, or family tree. Easy to search and add details. Love it!
  • Love this app!

    By MedspaBoise
    I’ve been using this app for years and it just keeps getting better every year. I’d like it even better if they would make it easier to delete people and merge them. I highly recommend this app.
  • Great app!

    It’s amazing the amount of information that is available on this app.
  • Add more features now!

    By Susie Jayne
    I thoroughly enjoy this user friendly app. I use it every day while writing a book on family history because it is faster than toggling to it on laptop. Please add a way to search ancestors homes and graves by location. Also, I want to search who all lived in one place at any given time, in list form. How about a timeline of ancestors birthdays! These features would make the ancestry app more popular.

  • My Lineage

    By Rubyred54
    Ancestry App is so easy and not confusing to work on your family trees. I have 4 family trees. The help instructions are explanatory on "how to do" options! I would love to see an update on "merge by name" by adding which of my 4 family trees have same name I'm merger them on, i.e. Alfonzo Garza: Gonzales Family Tree, Alfonzo Garza: Vialpando Family Tree Thank you
