Why Only Videos?

Videos are not the only way to learn. Quality articles that can be printed or saved as a file would be valuable as well. If anyone reading this agrees, please send feedback to Ancestry.

It's great to be able to watch these in spare minutes. The vids are short and informative. I mostly don't go for 'reading instructions' unless it's absolutely necessary. I prefer to learn as I go. I don't want to learn how to make a tree, I want to go make the tree! For the most part, I can do just that in Ancestry - even searching for records and clues is amazingly easy.
These videos give me valuable info and tools I don't get from doing. I love it!
I don't understand the bad reviews, however, I'm an ancestry subscriber, so maybe my experience is different?

My Go to

I have been working on my family tree on Ancestry now for a few months straight. I found Ancestry Academy and before I even used it I thought it’d be a resource that is nice to have, but probably wouldn’t be used that often. I don’t run into hang ups too often when researching on Ancestry, but when I do this app is the best! I find it much easier to navigate than anything else I’ve tried. I’ve learned so much from this app!
