Our family really loves this app. It’s fun and exiting finding new facts about your family. It’s incredible to see my grandmothers name on old census records. We have found lots of distant family. It was fun joking to my cousin how now we don’t have wonder if we were adopted LOL. Sometimes you can truly feel like ‘how the heck can I be related to some of the nuts in my family tree.’ Well the proof is in the pudding, there’s no denying it. One word of caution, be very careful when confirming facts LOL. Knowing that a specific member in my tree, 3 generations back was really the milk mans son, I confirmed too hastily the mom’s husband and messed up the tree starting from him back. But it’s great fun. Family secrets come alive right before your eyes. A friend found a brother she didn’t know she had because her daddy had an affair many decades back but they became close family and she attended his wedding. So see, there can be some happy endings if you are brave enough, muaaahahahaha! In our family we have a streak of white hair right in the front, which is pretty dramatic and we found a distant cousin, whom the resemblance between her and I was like WOW! So if you suspect stuff about your Kin and you are mentally prepared for the knowledge hidden within, spit in a cup, and just wait and see. Cuz you just never know, you could be related to me! Muahahahahaha! “JUST DO IT!”

~I cannot see messages from family members. They are being lost in transit but the alerts randomly show up.~ No wonder I cannot reach my cousin in Jamaica Queens, NY or my beautiful cousins here in the US the cognitive dissonance keeps throwing us off and making us use the app less and less as it pertains to messaging which is one of the killer apps and primary features. Rest of the app is great I love my colored graphs and receiving proof that I’m Nubian/Egyptian 🇪🇬. 5-stars once messaging issue is resolved I love you guys in Utah and I know you’ll address it in the coming months. I went to school at Neumont College of Computer Science we are doing good things now. Austin, TX, USA 🇺🇸 + The Texas Triangle our to California. #yayyay (Elon Musk is a 🦸🏾‍♂️ and I love Disney+.

Thank you!! I can see an online status indicator light on now that turns green and it has more of an IM/iMessage style format and flavor. Monique please hit me b@ck out NY.

Update: working much better! Old: Let me start with the positive: the tree section is lovely, helpful, works well, and I love it. Now, the negative: the DNA section, which updated on the 1 July is not great. It is set up similar to the website, but please consider that apps are used on devices, such as a phone. The DNA section has become a behemoth if information, difficult to manage or view, crashes if you try and look at Cousin matches for a second person... it used to be quite simple and elegant with the 11 generation view, and option but not requirement to open other users’ entire trees. How can I possibly appreciate their full multi- thousand tree of information on my iPhone? I hate to complain, I use the Ancestry app daily. Some people do crosswords or sudoku. I work on the family tree, it’s my favorite puzzle. I just wish I could use the DNA cousins’ section with ease, but it seems to have become way too huge to appreciate as a simple task in bed or during down time, with the phone. It has become a project strictly for sitting at my computer. Is there any chance to make it more convenient for device use? It’s an app, after all. Thanks :)

I can’t complain about the amazing range of relatives I’ve discovered going back centuries. But sometimes the hints I get are a little frustrating, because my tree will tell me that “Joseph Smith” is the father of “Sara Brown” while the hints show that Sara is the daughter of “David Jones.” And often it’s hard on the app to navigate your way back to the more remote branches of the tree. That being said, if you’re lucky enough, as I am, to have two parents going back to pre-Revolutionary days (who happen to be light-complected), and suspect that your parents might be distant cousins, you can sometimes find out they are, and also discover Jewish nth-degree great-grandmothers; darker-complected cousins; pastors and poets and actors; Mary Queen of Scots; a slave overseer for Thomas Jefferson 😔; figures such as Robert E. Lee and Martha Washington; Irish criminals deported to the Americas; and an assortment of French Huguenots by way of the British Empire. Your husband might have the DNA test confirm that yes, despite a Greek name and an immigrant from Germany, he is nearly half-Jewish and is attached to storied family fur-trading company owners from Kastoria in Greece who immigrated to the US via Germany. And your children won’t have inherited the same percentages of genes as their siblings. Viva la difference!

I really appreciate the convenience of being able to do ancestry on my phone! It makes it so easy to hop on and do a few leaves between activities. The app works well, but with a few issues. Occasionally, when trying to view something with a photo/attachment, it will say I need a paid account to view it, but usually when I go back and then click on it again, it works. Also, there are a few hints that take you to a website that you have to pay to be a member, just to see if that hint is the person in your tree (e.g. family search); I always skip those hints. Thirdly, a few hints always mess up no matter how many times you try to accept them; it just says something went wrong; try again later. (I’ve noticed this with newspaper articles.) I only give 4 stars because the census pictures only show you one page, whereas on the PC you can click to view the next page or previous page. Often the family is split between two pages, and I can’t confirm anything that is not on the page that it chooses to show me. If this were changed, I could give 5 stars, though those other problems still need addressed too.
