Ancestry helped me find not only who my ancestors were, but where they came from and where they died. It also showed me pictures of them and their tombstones. Ancestry let me know what my genealogy was to the smallest percentage.

Ancestry.com has completely changed my life. My mom and I were interested to see where we came from, and with a little research we found out some incredible things about our family. The program is easy to use and so much fun!

My family loves ancestry. We've been using them for years. It's helped us locate other long distance members of our family. I also did the DNA kit and it was so interesting to see where I originate from.

Poor shipment delivery service. Purchased two DNA kits from Ancestry.com who uses UPS to pickup and deliver shipment to destination city. At destination city, UPS transfers the shipment to USPS for home delivery. That logistical hand-off proves to be inefficient and can add days to final delivery time. As for my shipment, UPS delivered it to the correct city but the wrong post office location. Instead of transferring the shipment to the correct local post office for delivery, USPS forwarded the shipment to another city 200 miles away for a delivery date 3 days later! Yes, USPS shipped it 200 miles away, to ship it back 200 miles for delivery. Genius! When I called Ancestry.com the customer service rep told me that this was a USPS issue, not Ancestry.com. I purchased the DNA kit from Ancestry.com, who selected this UPS/USPS tandem for its delivery option. So, yes, this IS an Ancestry.com issue. So, please lower your standards and expectations for shipment delivery from Ancestry.com/UPS/USPS. I would suggest exploring 23 & Me who may have a better shipment and delivery process. P.S. I asked the customer service rep if by chance my order does not arrive within the delivery window outlined by Ancestry.com could I cancel my order for a refund. She said, yes, but there would be a $25 restock fee. What? As the customer I have to pay a fee for Ancestry.com's/UPS/USPS mistake and poor logistics model? In good faith, I cannot recommend Ancestry.com to a friend based on its poor delivery and customer service (deflection of the problem onto USPS).

I have had such a good experience on ancestry.com. I love that they send you little packets to get your dna and then you can find out exactly your heritage. So fun to spend a lot of time on.

Each of Ancestry's very late reply's starts out "our apology" unbelievably it goes down hill from there three months Five broken promises to fix, expedite and get me a report- still noting but apologies and more broken promises! "the sample was not usable" "we forgot to send you a replacement" "we will expedite and rush your report" [days after promised date and still nothing] Horrible- go else where

I got my mom a six-month ancestry membership for her birthday, and since then her and I have been addicted to tracing back our family tree and see as far back as it goes. It’s really cool to see where my family is come from, and this was well worth it!

I first signed up for ancestry because I was adopted and wanted to learn a little bit more about myself. I ended up finding extending family and information from my adopted family. The family tree feature has been SO MUCH FUN to use.

Ancestry is REALLY cool, just because of the built in family tree tool. I literally traced my father's side back generations in the span of a day. The documents, the birth records - it's all fascinating, especially from a history standpoint.

I use Ancestry along with FamilySearch.org to do all my family history. Ancestry has a great collection of records and is always adding more. Also, I did the Ancestry DNA kit and I love having links to new relatives. I am still trying to put all the pieces together, but I am now in contact (messaging through Ancestry) with so many new relatives I never knew I had.

A lot of my family and I have taken the AncestryDNA test and I have the All Access subscription with them. While the DNA test is accurate, I feel that they rely on their marketing to make up for the science not being all there yet. For that, I've seen a lot of people disappointed in their results. As for the subscription service, I find it worth the price if you are >3 generation American and Genealogy is your main hobby. With so many records made available digitally, it's made the process easier. For someone just getting started, I recommend doing at most a 6 month subscription for the US Discovery subscription and don't forget to cancel. For monthly subscriptions, they can be really stingy about refunding you even if you try reaching out immediately after being charged for a new month.

Despite the annual fee, Ancestry is the best paid family history site, hands down. Tons of records (and many different records than what you can get for free on FamilySearch), the ability to connect with other people, and their DNA service which is the biggest (by FAR) in the industry, helping you connect with other DNA relatives to learn more about your own roots. I'm a huge fan.

Ancestry.com is a very useful app/website. It allows me to access my ancestors and can trace back really far. I am also allowed to add information about my ancestors that I later learn about. This app is so useful and lets many people be able to track their own ancestors very easily. Overall I love this app!

Encouraged to submit my family tree after DNA testing. Decided it was a good idea to have it posted so others could learn from it and I could learn something new. Some of it was done by professional genealogists. 10 months later and my family tree has not appeared on the ancestry.com trees. I'm the only one who can access the information, and I already know it. It was a big waste of time for me to submit information. I have called 4 times to find out why. Many different excuses, but problem is never fixed. Once someone hung up on me.

I was thrilled about this when it first came out. So interesting. I thought I would try it out. I was excited about the results too, they seemed accurate and detailed. HOWEVER, recently they claimed to have re-tested my original sample, and now have lumped me into just 2 ethnic areas. The sub-cultures I had before, were all gone now. What happened to those? My level of trust for them has decreased dramatically. I think there is something 'flawed' here. I used to get DNA testing to friends and family as unique gifts. Not anymore! I'm sorry you let me down. I feel duped!

Ancestry.com makes filling out your family tree a breeze. It has been so much fun to find ancestors that have passed on before me. Fun to see pics of gravesites, and learn more about my heritage... I also like the way multiple people can be working on the same family member and we can each enter all the info we have found... I also did the DNA test and I loved the results... Such a great company!
