Your app is changing date of birth when adding a connection to someone already in a family tree.

I want to give ancestry 5 stars..

Note: This app is very limited if you don’t have an ancestry membership. Ancestry app is one of my favorite things in the world..I want to give it 5 stars, really I do.. but there are so many glitches. The potential this app has as the years go by is limitless if they stay continuously dedicated to working out the many kinks. In spite of the flaws, it is still an AWESOME tool for anyone interested in connecting their family tree. I even made a public tree for “I’m My Own Grandpa” just because the old song was so funny but goes too fast to make sense.. makes sense now when I see it on the tree lol

I’m sooo thankful for this app, it keeps years and year of family information

Ancestry App is great.

I use the App on research days, at family gatherings and even when the commercials are on tv if I’m watching a live show. It’s easy to use. My only issue is Ancestry frequently says Ancestry is not available. Even with this glitch, I’d still recommend the App.

I’m enjoying the app but

There’s a lot that’s confusing

Great app

Since the last update, bugs have been fixed. It’s a great app again. Thank you!

Finding Family

In the last year I have learned more about my dad, dad side of the family then I have ever know . I have found and meet many cousins and have help some of them figure out things they never may have know. We together with the help of DNA have put back together what has been lost. Some of it has been quite shocking to some. But most of all we are all happy to now have each other and to live for the future. Thank you ancestry for making this possible.

Seems like every hint requires paid subscription...

I’m glad I chose AncestryDNA over any of the other dna kits. That said, I’m tired of receiving emails with “hints” that require a paid subscription to Ancestry in order to view. I would join if it cost me $39.99 per YEAR...but $39.99 per thanks

Fix this update

Since the update, tree download after login is disastrous. The items loaded number surpasses the tree total and apparently never stops. Like others I’ve had to remove the app to stop the process. Catastrophic, as I love the app.
