  • Valuable research tool

    By DMIreson
    With instant access to my data files this app has provided a valuable research tool. Now that Ancestry syncs with my Family Tree Maker program this app provides the missing link for field use. Great job! Great to have a portable tool for reference.

    This is a great app to work with, as it Helps you find your ancestors with Helpful hints to guide you. It would Probably be even easier to do on a computer screen.

    I have really enjoyed and I have learned a lot about my family tree from using this app. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about their family tree.

    Whoever made ancestry is a big fat idiot. I’m Jayden Wesenhagen and ancestry doesn’t show my ancestors.
