  • Review of ancestry

    It's nice to have this with me when I'm out doing research, then I have my camera and my info. In one place.

    I was in a quest to find out about my parents and became a member of Ancestry and I found more information about my family that I have never imagined. From one leave took me to another and found the connection. I'm so glad for this kind of app. Now going for my DNA. Thanks
  • Amazing!

    It quickly drills down ancestors I have been trying to track on my own. I could only go back 5 generations on my own, now reaching 10 generations back with this app!
  • Great app!

    Very handy addition to the computer program I have. This app is my travel version so when I run into family I have them add their info immediately

    I work on it on my desktop but then I can also review people on the go. Plus now I'll be able to respond faster to messages from other people that I missed before.
