I did not have a good experience with this site. The price is too high for the average senior citizen to be able to afford.

I researched and discovered my ancestry as far back as the 1600s. I also wrote a book through their assests and discovered that my 5th Ggrandfather fought in the Revolution

Found all of my extended family and more....I'm currently using this wealth of knowledge to name our newest addition! So many great names to choose from and it feels good to know I'm honoring an ancestor.

I just started ancestry.com and so far completely disappointed. The search engine is awful. I put in my exact grandmother's name, exact dates for birth and death, and even the exact address where she lived. I made sure I selected "female." I kept getting results for male names and female names, way out of date range. So I then made sure the dates were exact, you would expect a few people pop up, but no - I got an error saying "no information available." Then, when you try to go to different websites on your own through ancestry.com, like find a grave - you are asked to subscribe and pay another subscription fee. They also boast of DNA testing. All the DNA test tells you is what ethnicity you are - well it really isn't that complicated for my family (German and Irish) - and there is no help for formulating your family tree. If you want help, you have to click "Hire and Expert." The starting price? $2,500!!!! That's STARTING. The search engine does not give you the tools you need to do this on your own. It is almost like they have to force you to hire the expert to get your lineage.

I had to call and talk to them on behalf of my grandma and it was very good, but the person I spoke with wasn't very polite. She made the experience hard and more frustrating than it needed to be.

I have used Ancestry for DNA testing and for research for family history. The DNA testing is fun and informative. I expected a little more detail, but I am satisfied. The kit was easy to use and the results came online. It is fun to compare with other family members and see who you are connected to online! The research tools are also valuable, I have used it to look for birth, death or marriage records and also immigration records.

Last year I received an Ancestry DNA kit for Christmas. I have am amazed that they are able to find so much information about you and your family through these kits. I would recommend them to anyone. The online site helped me to see all of my results and to understand better my story. I received great customer service and the product has brought me much closer to my family. This is one of the coolest family history tools out there!

I love, love, love this site. I use it several times a week for family history work. What I love most is that it give you other record hints that might match the person you are searching for. These hints aren't perfect, but they often give you clues about other documents. I would totally recommend this site to a friend and will keep using it.

Ancestry.com is the place to find out about your own DNA as well as your genealogy history, vital records, census records, and the support center is amazing. I couldn't believe that there are over 20 million member of ancestry.com. I am a firm believer in taking a DNA test to uncover your origins because it helps you understand who you are and where you come from! Its so inexpensive and easy to do! Try it today!
