Ancestry app

This app works then stalls. Also this is the second month I’ve been charged 29.95 for past 3 months despite my efforts to cancel
You cannot cancel through the app itself which is insane. It tells u to go to google play or apple which is also insane
B c I can’t figure this out ( I can’t find my subscription here, I can’t cancel
What a farce this app is

Account closure

I have tried several different ways to cancel my account. First I opened my account, after a goose chase, I found cancel my account, however, it then said I had to go to apple App Store to cancel. After signing into my apple account, I opened the ancestry app. After signing in there it continued to take me to the same pages. I haven’t been able to cancel and now the payment day has come 14 March and I still can’t cancel. I am going to call my credit card company and get them to cancel the payment.
