Treasures found on family tree

I have entered what I knew, accepted what treasures that came, to find my ancestors, has been the greatest treasures of my life. Good , bad , or otherwise , my people, and I love the knowledge of knowing of my ancestors. These truths can not be taken from me, other people may have reasons to accept or refuse our heritage, the dna, and knowledge show native American & immigrants, bloodlines mixed. I ask nothing for being me, I don’t want paid, for being me. No 1 can take or change by their words ,who our ancestors were, because they moved , here or there to survive, I am who I am because of my ancestors, their blood and teachings are who I am, no one can take away your beginnings. I can look and see the faces of my people now that looked like family found in historic photos, and drawings as far back as museums& history books , have recorded. We knew our grandparents & records prove history & legends to be true, this records match as always been told, many treasurers unfold, not to seek fortunes, only treasured loved ancestors are my treasures! Thank you , and may god bless you! Janet marie kilburn Craig shaner

I love this app!

I have used this app to research my entire family and a number of friends. I have found birth and death records, copies of personal letters and wills, land deeds, land grants for military service, and, oh, the history I have learned. It’s fascinating to read about your ancestry and realize they actually fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Indian Wars, the Civil War (fighting on both sides of the war); even draft records for WWI AND WWII. Or, that your ancestors lived in Europe during the Black Death, when hundreds of thousand of people died. Or that some ancestors were members of the Order of the Knights of the Fellow-Poor Soldiers of Solomon, known as the Knights Templar! I have ancestors
from Ireland, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark , Sweden, Switzerland, Russia, Egypt, Iran, Afghanistan, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Doesn’t that make you think! I have actually made contact with a number of people that actually shares my DNA; cousins 1, 2, 3, even 5 times removed. What a trip! I LOVE THIS APP!

Great App. Could use a little refinement.

The app is a fantastic database for having to keep track of so many family records. There’s some minor things that would be great if they could be improved.
- Ancestor pictures: Seems like you should be able to click/tap on their picture to see an enlarged picture, but instead when you tap on their picture it takes you to the option to edit or replace their picture. I don’t want to edit, I just want to see a bigger picture of what they looked like
- Homeland discovery: I thought the homeland discovery feature was a little glitchy. It was a little difficult to pan and zoom around the map. I was using an iPhone 7 Plus. Maybe it’s smoother on other devices. This feature has a lot of potential innovation for future versions. It would be could to integrate it with google/apple maps virtual mode to see what the streets look/looked like. It would be cool to see virtually what their headstones look like. Just some thoughts.
