Ughhh but now I'm smug
I had to edit my review as something rather extraordinary did happen and I owe them for that. They've also let me build a tree for free which I share around.
I still think they're a bit dodgy with tactics but isn't that how you make money. I'm 60 and have never met my father. Luckily there was one cousin only who had their DNA in. I am now in contact with my 82 year old father. I would consider myself very lucky.
I changed the following initial review as I had to eat some of the words.
This organisation are supreme carrot danglers.
Was given the DNA kit for a birthday and the results have been amazing.
I have located two half siblings I knew nothing about and through these connections have been able to find a lot of answers about my enigma father and his family. Information has at times been confronting, but after a bit of time processing it, has made me feel a bit more whole about my heritage and family history.
Great resource! Highly recommend
I’ve had great success with Ancestry. Been so easy to create a large tree. Too many hints to investigate - that’s a good thing. I’m looking forward to continuing with this company.

Very powerful database, valuable DNA results. Highly recommended
I have been an Ancestry member for seven years, have built a very large and detailed family tree with them and highly recommend Ancestry if you want to investigate your family tree. The available information for ancestors is mind boggling but due to privacy it is difficult to near impossible to obtain information on living or recent family members. This is not Ancestry's fault as the data is simply not available publicly due to privacy laws, particularly in Australia.
I took the DNA test and was staggered by my number of matches across th...e world. Very valuable for me as it enabled me to confirm the identity of my father's family. He was raised in an orphanage and never knew his parents. He died in 2002 and I used Ancestry to build a tree of his potential family and then confirmed my research with DNA matches - a fabulous and very exciting outcome! I started out slow and small with Ancestry with only a slight interest in my family tree. Ancestry cannot provide all the answers but I am now a regular user of Ancestry and have been staggered by the amount of information I have collected and how large my family tree has become. I have noticed that some reviewers are not happy with Ancestry's membership payment system and introductory offers with automatic charges from credit cards. My advice is to read carefully before signing up as all the relevant information is provided and YOU need to make yourself aware of what you are signing up for. This applies to any site that you join and Ancestry's methods are very common across the web.
It was everything and more
All my life wondering why, who and where.
I did the test and less than 6 weeks later I have found my whole family.
7 siblings from 2 families and both parents 1 passed.
All terribly excited and happy to know and find me.
I live in Australia and they in US.
I was fortunate that a 2 cousins had also done the DNA test so for me it was a simply brilliant outcome.
I wish the others best of luck.

I am trying to find my results
Sorry but all i can say is good luck!! Unfortunately my experience with Ancestry.com tells me they are not reliable and are hit and miss with their results. Try another DNA provider
Not good. My cousin has done accurate research about our family’s heritage. I got my DNA estimate with my heritage and it was quite inaccurate in comparison to the research. Not recommended.
