It really fun and a bit addictive. The more FB friends you have on there, the more fun it is. The only issue I have right now is that it isn't recognizing my husband as my husband, and it took a half a day before it recognized my teen daughter as my child. Also I signed out and signed back into the app, so now some of my previous connections to FB friends aren't being recognized. Will be really great when they work out the bugs!
My husband and I show off to each other. I was jealous of him having a relationship with Helen Keller, who I have always admired. Then she showed up as my cousin also, through a different line. Now I am loading it over him with Stevie Ray Vaughn It is amazing and fun. It has given me names to investigate when researching my family tree. It is up to me to support the information. I show it to our friends and suggest they install it.
POSSIBLE relatives people. It's up to YOU to verify if the app gets it right or not. Keep in mind this pulls info from public trees that may or may not be right (and many people don't properly verify people added to their trees with documentation ). The app is good at what it does though. ...gives you a hint toward a possible famous relative.
I love it. I always missed the section of Ancestry's website that showed what public figures we may be related to. Ironically, the biggest discovery I've had wasn't the actual connections I've found with these people and those in my tree. It was because of a common relative with an actress a co-worker and I share, that we found out we are cousin's. Well played Ancestry, well played. :)
This app lets you see relationship by common ancestor. It shows you breaf selection of both your tree thumb up or down for if it's correct. For both your side from the person in common. I'd like a way to undo connections. I thought at first the app had given me my father's father name but after talking to his siblings this is actually a stepfather and not his father. It is not known who his father is. I know this app is more for fun but I want connections to be correct when linked to common ancestor. After using the app for months now I see there is a error rate of about 1/4 of the time. It's supposed to use your tree but also used other similar trees to make matches. This causes error of people have built their tree with incorrect information. It's still fun and interesting for fun facts though but you have to check if the lines are correct before getting excited. Thanks.
Growing up with my dad doing his family made me interested in finding out about my mom's side. I've connected with two family lines and now with this app gives many more to research to verify if it's true. Most of what it shows I have already but it taken me couple generations further back that I now need to find. Wish they showed birth and death locations to help in such research.
Bug fixes and performances improvements.
