  • Disappointed

    By PinkWarrior1
    Some of the hints I’m getting, I’m asked to purchase another membership. I’m currently paying a monthly membership with little information.

    Cancelled subscription. Still charged me and they refused to refund it, even though I called the day of the charges.

  • Suggested to start b4 getting results

    By Stokleyt07
    Now, AncestryDNA suggested to get this “tree” started B4 getting the DNA results back. & it is useful if there is someone in ur family that has everything done already. They will match peoples names to census & things like that, however since I haven’t got the dna results yet, I am not sure if this will change, but right now, it won’t allow me to add documentation to my family tree that is part of my family without paying for them?!? There’s a person in my family that had a book published on their family name. & it was lineage that goes way way back to the 1700’s. & I can’t add any of that until I pay for it!! What the what!?! I already paid for the AncestryDNA test!! I’m not paying MORE money EVERY Single Month. I wish I had known this!

    I love Ancestry! Always thought my last name was Irish. Boy was I wrong! Fun to find out I’m’ Scottish, English, French, German, and Welsh Dlanglin .
  • Overpriced

    By othercook
    The free version is practically useless. The monthly fee is totally too high.
  • Ancestry photos

    By Tw33ty86
    I don’t know who to contact I have been trying to get this information and I thought it would be great for everyone if you guys could help out with some of the ancestry photos not everyone has photos of people but I figured that the government has some type of government database of photos with a B license or a ID or something that you guys can at lease so that we can at least get a picture of some of the ancestors I know that it might not work with people who are currently alive but people who are passed it should be OK to release photos not sure if you have a link to the government for deceased individuals but I have a tried endlessly to get a picture for my mom of her mother and have not been able to do so this would be a great addition I think to the ancestry search
  • Really Bad

    By Weary1$5tof
    Down a lot. You mark up a tree and you leave the app; when you go back in, your paternal grandfather is now your paternal step grandfather. You save a hint and it keeps coming back to be reviewed. Huge waste of time.
