Finding my family
Ancestry DNA were able to locate a number of first cousins. I was adopted as a baby and had never met a relative from either my birth or adopted family. At the age of 66 I took the plunge (and the test) because I wanted my children and grandchildren to have some idea of where we came from. I had built up a notion in my head that I was probably an illegitimate child of some poor young mum. Imagine my surprise when I found out that I was half right. My birth mother was young when she had me at 24 years of age, but I was the youngest of five boys in an unhappy marriage. Two of my brothers are still alive and I have been given a warm welcome by so many relatives. Heartfelt thanks.
Made some great discoveries
Through Ancestry DNA, I have discovered an entire branch of the family that I didn’t know existed. There were some shocking surprises in the journey but meeting some wonderful people has made it all worthwhile. Having multiple family members tested as well as constructing the family tree is highly recommended as more hints become forthcoming. The Ancestry program is a big help but you need to understand that it doesn’t do all of the hard work for you - it can only work with the data it has so you will need to do some of your own research as well. It is good that any living people in the tree are private by default. The DNA results helps a great deal in placing the pieces together.
Great mobile family tree resource
I have used the Ancestry app for a couple of years now, and compared with the website, the app is so much better. It shows more record information and pictures without having to pay for their member subscription, which makes it easier to determine if they are actually the person you think they are (with same name, etc). It is also more user friendly and easier to navigate than the website, especially while viewing the tree.
Only criticism is it sometimes crashes when you try to add data so you have to relaunch and do it again. A minor complaint for a well designed free app.
