  • Ancestry Academy

    By RecoveryCoach
    This is opening a lot of new doors for me.
  • Great education source

    By Ludicy
    The videos are short and to the point. You can save them to your playlist for future reference.
  • My Go to

    By Cyan N.
    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!

  • Very helpful App

    By Wlweddell
    I’ve been into genealogy for decades, but I still have a lot to learn. This app is quite helpful! I appreciate the short videos; I probably wouldn’t watch something 30 minutes or longer. These give me just the jumpstart I need on brick walls and missing info.
  • Why Only Videos?

    By hdvyehdr
    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.
  • Ancestry!!!

    By aprilanddavid
    I have been able to learn new ways to research my family’s history and genealogy! I’ve been super surprised at how it gets broken down in the step-by-step ways! So EASY!!!
  • First video, bad advice

    By Beastiboo
    The video regarding organizing leaves left me asking, “These are professional hints?” The speaker gave three hints and disqualified one because she already had the photo. But what about the person who posted the photo? What if this person is unknown to you and could have done research you could obtain? What if this person is a cousin from a branch of your tree you need help with? Don’t disregard a hint so quickly!!
  • Amazing!!!
