    My profile and results are no longer there . Wants me to activate a kit I already have results, pleased with them. Where are they?
  • Nonsense

    By chandler tolbert
    Totally nonsense DNA test. My grandmother is from Sicily and so is her entire family and it’s saying I’m only 6% Italian.......
  • What a joke

    By Lizzy1989!
    If you want to know specifics about where you’re from don’t waste your time or money with ancestry.
  • Absolutely wonderful

    Absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much!
  • I had some trouble finding my results

    By Willowrenee
    However Eurika was such a huge help and we found the solution and she was a pleasure to speak to
  • Terrible

    By Babyfarts mcgeezax
    Vague, inaccurate, pathetic, slow service. If you wanna know specifics about where you’re from, save your money.
  • Can’t log in anymore

    By Warlock7
    The change account pop up blocks the ability to log into your account!!! What kind of idiots tested this before shipping? Nobody tried logging in?!?
  • Crashing. Been over two weeks no results

    By Giopio
    I hand even log in now. What going on? I really hope I am able to see my results soon. Place fix what’s going on. This was a birthday gift, and expensive. And really unfortunate that you have to depend on an app to get your results
  • Update bricked app

    By EverythingIsA.O.B.
  • Needed features to be Better

    By 200 in1 app
    It would be better if the AncestryDNA app had the (Matches Map) feature. Because that is one of Ancestry’s best features. Also AncestryDNA needs to tell all of the people who are using AncestryDNA that they need to put a profile picture on their Ancestry account. Because if everyone had a profile picture it would be easier to tell who they were since some people don’t put their real name on their and no picture on their. Since the app already has maps on it it should just add the (Matches Map) feature to that existing map on the app.
  • Help! All of my matches disappeared!

    By Signgilder
    After latest update I'm no longer able to view any of my matches which were visible before update. Deleting and re-installing didn't resolve the issue either. Please fix!
  • I found my birth family !

    By juls c .

To have found my true blood family and to know who I look like ...their love and acceptance from this one a true miracle and a blessing of the best type ever!!
  • So Happy that I checked my DNA Story!!!

    By windrider991
    When my wife Kristal and I had our DNA checked out with AncestryDNA, I had no idea at all, zero, none at all that I had any Irish in my DNA profile, and not only do I, it’s the Majority single contributor to it!!! This knowledge spurred me on to find my Irish relatives, again whom I never was told anything about, at any time, and behold I found her!!! My Great Grandmother Mary Carr was from Ireland, and she had emigrated to Canada with John Maves, a German. Their daughter, Kathryn Maves is my Grandmother on my mom’s side of the family! This years was the first year that I was able to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, knowing that I am actually Irish too!!! O the joy of it all!!! Not only am I Irish, I also have English, Scottish, and Welsh too!!! Absolutely Thrilling!!! Thank you AncestryDNA!!!
  • Having fun

    By pattycocacola
    Having a blast with the app. A really fun time and very enlightening
  • Hard to maneuver and experience

    By Erika McGrath
    I’m disappointed with AncestryDNA. There’s a charge for everything, it’s vague, there is no means to connect with relatives via messages.
  • Misleading

    By bkeiser
    Too much in app purchase
  • Review is for the app

    By Cheese n rice
    App: Easy to use,navigate, quick activating the kit is easy and dummy proof. Less than/about 3 weeks to get results during promotional period. Purchased 3 kits and sent on different dates to get an average idea of process time. _______________ Results: nothing life changing or astonishing. If you know your parents, grandparents, and have a somewhat idea on the evolution of mankind or a sense of migration, war, and the slave trade, you’ll better understand why you have certain regions in your dna. It can still be fun to do with family members. _______________ Con on region results: North, Central, And South America are in one region for example. Might not be as helpful for someone who has a dad from N. America and a mom from S. America. It’s not going to be 50/50 or close to it (because of European & African in them), but your half might be even less because together your parents are 30-40% total of this region.
  • Updating the site

    It’s been 2 weeks and the site is not not up and functioning correctly. I got a message stating update will be done soon apologies for the delay. I add people to my tree and I login in the next day and they are gone. This has happened 4 times. It’s more of a headache now than a journey.
  • Can’t view messages

    By Emijacsar
    It’s disappointing that you can’t view or reply to messages. That was one of the main reasons I liked the app. But not anymore

  • Horrible joke

    By kkkkkkkkkkkkikkkkkkk
    57 percent Ireland and Scotland and 43 percent England. That’s it? A joke
  • Had high hopes

    By DebbsDebbington
    This test… doesn’t work. I had some really high hopes about finding out a lot more details about the places my genes come from, but I also decided to do the genetic traits add on test to see how accurate it was on measurable appearance based traits. Almost none of them were correct, even those that are easily identifiable and pretty well established in other genetic tests (i.e. hair or eye color, earlobe shape, cilantro aversion.) In addition, the ethnic origins directly contradict the majority of well documented history in my family genealogy in ways that are quite literally impossible. Lastly, I was still excited to see some of the detailed regional breakdowns, but I just got some wide regional guesses and generic Wikipedia information about a few countries. I would go ahead and splurge on a more reputable test like 23 and Me instead of going for this.
  • Fast and easy

    By Jwill9804
    Brought the kit when it was on a promotional deal so with taxes it cost about 71. Results came back really quick. They received the kit March 27, got the results back April 7.
  • My background

    By vincethegreat1
    I’m surprised of the outcome of the results, I knew some of my background bit not everything. I highly recommend this company if you truly want to know your history culture & where you come from.
  • Loading Screen

    By Jss R
    I downloaded this app for an easier way to look at my results. It worked perfectly the first time. The next time I tried to log on, it doesn’t even load a home screen. Just a loading sign. Fix this
  • Updates please

    By Umalazoff
    My traits won’t open up or compare to other regions since months ago, and I got my ethnicity updated last September and my second and third cousins don’t have them!
  • Great but..

    By Trexbrett
    This was great and super cool! The only problem is that there’s no way to search relatives so it’s really hard to find specific family member. Please add a search feature!!
  • So satisfied

    By juju939
    I tested my son to see what his nationality was because his father is mixed with many different cultural backgrounds and I am Pacific Islander, I find this accurate because it has some cousins listed on his father’s side as second cousins which seems legit! I did not know my son would have family is South Whales or England , I always thought he had more of an Irish Descendant but that’s why I think it’s so important to test so you can see what your cultural background is!

    Very spot on
  • App not working

    By Desiree Regalado
    Ugh! It’s been days since the app has not opened / worked for me. I activated my DNA and sent it off and now I can’t open it. What is going on? And I need this to access my results later.
  • Awful.

    By BitingChaos
    Compared to other apps, like 23andMe, this one just feels so bare-bones. Tapping lots of things just opens a browser window instead of completing the action in the app. It has a fake notification for Traits, but that is a paid addon (included free with 23andMe). There seems no way to hide the notification without paying. I cannot find how to search to add family members. My wife and I are linked on 23andMe, but I've yet to do it on here. Doing a search on the Ancestry DNA site just brings up a prompt to subscribe to the pay service in order to search. Basically, I think this whole service is junk, and I'm SHOCKED at how high its rating it, for being such an incomplete app and poor service. People: if you want a better DNA and matching service, with more included features, check out 23andMe instead of Ancestry DNA.
  • The tree

    By only only me
    The tree is confusing. You need to make that more friendly.
  • Matches

    By silverk
    I prefer the way the matches showed before. It was clear and showed the cm’s without having to click on the person. Also, my ethnicity showed one thing on my site and something totally different on my mother’s matches prior to the update. Currently the match on my mom’s site shows as my prior estimate. I called to find out which one was correct at the time but you cannot get ahold of anyone who can do more than look at the site questions to answer you leading to frustration and the feeling that I cannot necessarily trust Ancestry’s estimates. It would be nice to be able to have someone that can forward the question to a person that can answer dna questions.

    By Spy42day
    I am extremely impressed with my AncestryDNA results. I felt like I was on a treasure hunt. I have been a member of for many years but the DNA TEST revealed so much more information I would have never found. It would be excellent if relationships could be more explicit: my nephew and twin brother were identified as 1st cousins. Keep improving and simplifying the process and I will continue my searching and recommending Ancestry DNA to everyone! STEPHANIE IRENE
  • Change to previous format

    By FrequentPlayer100
    I have loved using this app until the last update. I don’t want you to select what dna matches I see, I want to select them. I don’t care about trait but liked thrulines which is now gone. Please change back to the previous format
  • Improvements

    By pewich
    I live the app but as an avid user I want more detail about the improvements you make.
  • Love the dna test hate the app

    By Cheebsy
    App tends to be buggy, constant updates and not usually for the better. I think the popularity blew up so fast the dev’s are in over their heads trying to figure out where to go with the app(kind of reminds me of a squirrel in the road running back & forth as a car approaches 😱).
  • Work perfectly

    By VAshbourne
    Not much to do here rather go on the website
  • Great Finding Out WHO I Am!

    By JassyJ3ss
    Love the app, it helped me find out about my biological father and what makes me, me! I can’t believe I’m half Puerto Rican, and half English! What a mix! The only thing I don’t like is that it doesn’t directly link you to others... my cousins and uncle for instance are not in one of those DNA circles.
  • Love it!

    By sudieviola
    Found a sister I didn’t know existed!
  • Waste of time

    By cjsons2001
    So far I just notified that my 2nd test can’t be finished. Now they want me to waste my time doing it again. 1 brother/1 sister and my daughter have done it and none of the backgrounds match. Total joke
  • Review

    By Cole01626
    With the level of data you have I was really expecting/hoping for more integration of the app to other social media platforms to connect more family easily and quickly,...and a social media app itself. I know that I can send people a message, but that seems about it, although I’m just now looking at the family tree aspects so maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised there. Thanks, Erik Shelton 937-329-0032
  • Ok

    I enjoyed getting my results but I have trouble getting out of maps and back to original screen. Had to close out doe a while.

    Ayy I guess I got potato blood in me veins.
  • User Unfriendly

    By mariuon
    I don’t like the current updated version. It is not user friendly. What was once at my fingertips is now harder to find. The enemy of good is always better.
  • too general

    By ID queen
    way too general information If you are American the app might be a good idea, for me it was too general, didn’t learn what i was looking for.
  • Account

    By L8dy K
    I downloaded the app prior to sending in my sample like the directions say to do but the app won’t let me create an account. It keeps saying something went wrong, try again later
  • DNA

    By zzzzzxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxd
    I am so disappointed. I thought I might know about family. Distant family. Or even who my father might be. I’d be happy to know His nationality, I know nothing of him and this did not help me one bit
  • Glad to know my roots

    By Robnation101
    It was exciting to trace my roots back to before my family came to the US. However I don’t want to be hounded by constant requests to pay for more services. I haven’t seen anything that is worth paying more money for yet. Also I feel like the website and app could use some improvements. It’s not as user friendly as I would like it to be. I’m sure that you guys could benefit from sending out a survey about improvements your customers would like to see and brainstorming ways to make your site/app more enticing. I do like the services that you offer with the basic package and dna test. I am giving 3* because I believe there are some definite opportunities for improvement.
