Customer Reviews

Great app. Couple of recommendations

Love ancestry. I tried several different sources for making family trees. This one is the best. The only 2 things so far I would like to see changed:
1- I would like to be able to incorporate other people's trees into my own. I've found several other users that have the same person in their tree that is in mine. Usually, extended family members. But would be great if I could move them and all the associated family into my profile tree.
2- would like to be able to zoom way out on the screen to show my entire "bloodline". Right now you can move 2-3 generations back and then you have to click on a grandparent to go farther back. Would like to be able to see all on the same screen.

Good but needs some additions

I really like the mobile version now. I do think there could be two big things added.
1. It would be awesome if the search would allow to search by date, or even just year. Right now, you can only search by name.
2. The mobile version does not allow for uploading pictures to shared trees. I was recently added to someone's tree, and for some reason I cannot photos upload via my phone.

Other than that, I think the app is good.

Great mobile tool

This app got me started with my own genealogy research, and just after a few record purchases and the online trial through their website, I'd found dozens of records for ancestors I didn't know about. Great app, even better service. I now subscribe to keep working on it.

The relatively recent addition of searching records has greatly improved an already handy app, and has really made using it so much simpler and more fun.
