While I appreciate the ability to deep dive into your family history, I already payed enough money as is to purchase the kit—why do I have to pay 30 dollars twice a year to look at which parent gave me which DNA and group together my paternal/maternal matches? Or look at certain records? This is insane. App was better off before the money hungriness.

Lately when I go and try to edit information for a family member the app crashes. Even after the recent update


I can’t believe how incredible this is. Super accurate.

learning curve

l am liking this app, but i'm having trouble keeping people organized
By BarbaraAG


I feel like the app is amazing but I was kinda upset how the option to see the dna breakdown with parent 1 and parent 2 went from free to expensive …why give it to us for free then charge us I don’t get it

Site Review

It takes awhile to get to know how to navigate, wish there was an instruction. I much more preferred the old (2012 era)‘Family Tree layout’, it was easier to navigate thru your entire family tree. Now there is more documents available. I have found it harder to correct entrees. Lots of thought has to go into source & name spelling. I have noticed different family members spelling their family name differently. Would. Guess it was from the lack of education; especially, from farming families. Then the taker of the census, had to guess as to the spelling. Drake Dierkhising, July 2018

Waste of money

Everything is about paying after spending money on just the test why would I pay monthly for this

I’ve loved this app for several years, but with the recent update I can no longer access certain information that I used to have access to. Several things that used to be free (seeing how your DNA is split between parents and a few other things) are now only available to members. If it had always been a paid thing, that would be fine, but to just come in and change that… nah. I’ve already dished out a ton of money to Ancestry so this change is infuriating.
