    Ancestry App is so easy and not confusing to work on your family trees. I have 4 family trees. The help instructions are explanatory on "how to do" options! I would love to see an update on "merge by name" by adding which of my 4 family trees have same name I'm merger them on, i.e. Alfonzo Garza: Gonzales Family Tree, Alfonzo Garza: Vialpando Family Tree Thank you

    By MeCrazySteve is great as long as you join and get going. Not the easiest but it is a start and full of information. The more you have on your tree the better off you are. Good luck, ask for help when you have questions!!

    I give this a 5-star rating! The app is easy to use, and provides a great convenient way to continue working on your family tree, even when you are away from your pc. Easily allows you to look at hint records, compare to your own existing data, and update records with any new or more detailed information, accordingly. The only thing I have not figured out how to do that the pc software does is to merge duplicate people in the trees and to refine searches in a similar style. Other than that, I love the app!!!

    I have enjoyed and learned so much from Ancestry. The only issue I have is it takes a long time to change possible relatives in the bottom block. I don't understand when one is a grandparent and the other spouse is not. They have a child together, you are related to said child yet no relationship shows. There is a few bugs they need to fix. Ancestry started a new Beta site asking questions to show the relationships you have with other ancestry relatives. But it’s not operational yet. It would be nice to be able to ask questions of others in a group type setting. It is confusing the most about being related to one grandparent and their child which belongs to both grandparents yet ancestry only shows one grandparent being related??

    I use the mobile app almost daily. The quick input menu accessible from the tree view is really handy. I can multitask, updating my tree easily.

    I love this App. It finds the information for you! This App is dream for beginners and experts. With this app I have found over a thousand photos, birth certificates, death certificates, stories and much more. It is the best genealogy app I have ever found and used. I have been researching genealogy for over 25 years. It has never been easier than with this app. Ancestry has made genealogy easy for everyone. I recommend it to anyone interested in their family history.
