Explore the world of your ancestors with the Wolfram Genealogy & History Research Assistant, the only tool that lets you discover what was going on while they lived. Map family relations and expand on what you already know about any of your ancestors with a simple, easy-to-use interface. It's as if you're traveling through time with the tips of your fingers.

This is just a small sample of the many questions you can investigate about your ancestors:

-Were their names common at that time?
-What happened on their birthdays?
-What was the weather like on your grandparents' wedding day?
-What were the towns they lived in like, including demographics, and how far are they from where you live?
-What was 20 dollars worth the year your great-grandmother was born?
-What is the technical relationship between you and your grandfather's sister?

The Wolfram Genealogy & History Research Assistant is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.

The Wolfram Genealogy & History Research Assistant draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

Why pay for information you can Google or Ask Siri?

This application is a definite waste of money. I typed in several last names. None of them came up and several were famous in history. Information that is retrievable was often irrelevant and even worse, inaccurate. The bad reviews are correct.
When looking for a way to be refunded my money, I noticed you cannot find a help button. Do not waste your time or money with this worthless app.

Great, reviews are wrong!

This app provides a lot of facts on a lot of levels to help explore historical data in relation to events. Weather, wars, city data and more. Some tools, especially surname is weaker but this not why I would get this app. Good calculators for age, birthday, and relationships. Historical timelines should be more zoomed in but are still a quick to fact check time frames. There are many ways this can help you genealogical research as well as facts for writing family history.
Keep adding to it please. I do not agree with others initial reviews stating it is useless, wolfram must have added much more since then.

Bad App

I have a unique last name as does my wife. The app crashed within seconds of pushing enter. No bueno! Please credit back my $4.99!
