Found tons about my Heritage & Even my birth Father

BrndaM

It’s the best gift, I received in my life. For my 62 Birthday my son purchased me a kit. While I waited for my results, I began creating my tree. The app was easier to use than it looks and it took no time at all to master navigating my tree.
Then the results arrived and wow it was unbelievable. I never knew my birth/biological father so it was interesting seeing possible relatives. But I didn’t have the nerve to contact them, so I stuck to my mom’s tree & adopted father, then tackled my husbands side exploring leaves.
Then one day I had a message in my mailbox and it a matter of minutes I had my first contact with a Second Cousin .... that contact confirmed we’re relatives and although my birth father is deceased, I have Aunts, Uncles, sisters & brothers and of course tons of cousin to reach out to!
Perhaps I’m one of the lucky few that find relatives, for that I’m thankful for AncestryDNA. It’s a great app and became a new hobby for a recently retired grandma. With the help of AncestryDNA we may have just figured out my next “Heritage” vacation spot.

New update

AncestorHunter

*I updated my review. I now give the app only two stars because the update that took place yesterday has made the app even worse. It won’t load hints, has completely closed on me three times in an hour, and you might as well forget searching for hints because that completely freezes along with updating someone’s info. Something needs to be done about this app. It’s horrible.

I loved the Ancestry app before the update. I preferred it over the actual webpage. However, I do not like the layout of the new update. It is a lot more difficult to get where you want to be than it was before. It’s just not as appealing either. I liked being able to click on an ancestors profile and see their facts, then clicking next to it to see their family, then the sources. It looked a lot better and was easier. The app seems to freeze and flip sideways on me a lot now also. Never really had that issue before. Just last night, I had to completely close it midway through saving a record because it turned sideways and froze. That didn’t only happen once but probably four or five times within a couple hours. I love Ancestry but I do not like the new update, at all.

Fantastic App Save One Minor Flaw

I really like the Ancestry App. I’m on it constantly as I am a professional genealogist and it’s the easiest way to get data real-time when whether I'm standing in some ancient cemetery or at the National Archives in DC. There is one flaw in the design which frequently raises my blood-pressure: the search “feature,” if indeed you can call it a feature. The slide bar is not effective to isolate specific searches within the various Ancestry databases and there’s no way to alter the individuals dates within the search. This can make for a serious headache when you’re searching for a common surname while standing in said ancient cemetery.

Other than that one issue, it’s never let me down and it’s a lot easier to pull out my iPhone and load recent pictures/media than it is to carry a laptop into the field.
