- Photo Enhancement

I have a full subscription to MyHeritage and it is my only app I use for researching, studying and exploring my family ancestors. It is a tremendous research tool and thoroughly enjoy it. Recently, the only updates of the app concerns the photo enhancement portion and I use it extensively. My only question is why are there so many updates on this part? Seems as if I receive one every few days and, when updating the app, I see no significant difference from from the previous updates and the description of the update is always as the previous one. The quality is still the same and no improvement can be discerned. Is there something I am missing on this?

- One step closer 2 my ancestors

This is something I have wanted to do since I was a child. I remember asking my mom n grandparents about our relatives. I also asked about what we were made of my grandfather said, “ 2gee girl (my nickname is 2B-Tobee)we have ppl from Mississippi n Tennessee”. My grandma said, she didn’t know her dad well but was told he was a Blackfoot Indian n her mom was Black n Cherokee. I was told her moms records burned in a school house. Then I talked to other relatives like my great Aunt Virginia RIP n others who knew our family history. They collaborated somethings n told me additional information that I have held close to my heart ❤️. When my Great Aunt Della passed yrs ago, we made a trip to Greenville, TN for the funeral. I got a chance to meet relatives I’d never seen before. I learned we owned land a lot of it, but it was taken by the government. When companies such as 123nme, Heritage n a host of others started the DNA testing, I nearly jumped out of my seat. Finally I would know who I am, where I come from basically what made me me. I’m I really American Indian or West Indian I’m about to find out FINALLY that little girl will have real answers. Based on my molecular makeup

- It’s good, but...

I like the layout and features of the site. I wish more features came with the purchase of a DNA testing kit, but what you get is pretty good. My main criticism is about the DNA estimate. My great grandma was born in Hawaii, making me part Hawaiian. That would be listed as Polynesian. My estimate revealed I was 0% Polynesian, which caused some serious concerns. Then I saw I was being DNA matched to people who were 100% Polynesian. I understand the percentage of Hawaiian DNA I inherited is lower because my great grandma was my 100% Hawaiian ancestor, but it clearly isn’t undetectable if I am being matched to people who are 100% Polynesian. Overall, I have read the data base needs to gain more samples to increase the accuracy of the estimate and it especially needs more people from certain ethnic gene pools. For example, the Hawaiian gene pool. If the accuracy improves in the future, I’d like a better estimate; but for now, overall, I’ve enjoyed my experience.

- Three problems with this app

I have three problems with this app which are irritating. 1- when I’m in the app and then go to another one to look up information, and then come back, I find it times out very quickly. I have to log back in and it does not take me back to the place where I was working. Highly time consuming and irritating. 2- I can’t change the tree layout from vertical to horizontal. 3-My tree is quite large and when you start putting in every sibling and spouse every every kid it gets so wide it becomes unmanageable. I’d like a toggle option between direct ancestors and all ancestors. I’d like to stick with direct ancestors but you need to add all the relatives to double check to make sure that you’re on the right path. That being said, I love the fact that there are so many places for different types of information. Some programs only give you bred, wed, and dead. I like being able to indicate what causes of death were to see if there are any inherited things to watch for. I like that there is a separate field for maiden names and married names. I’d love to see a suggestion box to the developers. For instance, I’d like to see ONE PLACE per ancestor to enter any and all information for them, including a delete button. If those issues were addressed I would give 5 stars.

- Needs Improvement

There are certain things in this app that it is great at accomplishing. I have found a lot of information here that I have not found on other sites similar to this one. Not to say that there aren’t still some seriously necessary tweaks that could be done. 1. Every time I shut this app, just for a minute or 2, it takes me back to starting position. So when you want to go back to what you were working on, you have to find it again... and again.... and again.... and again. You get the gist? 2. I work this on an IPad and it’s the only app I have that doesn’t support split screen so that I can use it and another app at the same time. Opposing apps have to sit on top of the MH screen as the MH screen will not shrink or draw up from the toolbar. 3. When adding a picture of someone to their profile, why does it add a second picture to their album. The album that has the exact same picture? Makes no sense. 4. Where is the information sources after you approve them. Sometimes I like to go back and verify my information is correct or consult it to possibly draw more information from and finding it is a booger, let me tell you!! That’s all I got for now. I will check back if any of these things change any time soon.

- Inaccurate percentages & ethnicities

I’m a mixed person with a mixed mother with African ancestry & Caucasian father. I’ve taken other dna test & they’ve all come back with a high amount of European ancestry, some African ancestry, & some Andean and mixed Caribbean ancestry. It makes sense because that’s what my parents are. I took this one to find family. My results from my heritage says I’m 76% African (47% Nigerian & 27% west African) & 24% European & other. The funny thing is I’m related to tons of European & European decent & people of mixed backgrounds. I’m puzzled. A lot of my ethnicities did not show up that is available in their system. A lot of the “other” ethnicities they estimated in my analysis are not in my family at all. I’m puzzled how I’m more African than my mom, in their estimates, who is mixed with some African ancestry & I have a completely European father? I’m more African than anyone in my family according to their analysis. This is the only kit that gave these ridiculous results but managed to locate some family members.

- Great for large families

I personally used this for a large book series (Warriors) and it was by far the best I've found so far. No limits on number of people, easy to use and understand, and you can make it as complicated as you want to, or stick to something simple. It worked really well for me, and I genuinely can think of no complaints. I would definately recomend this app for a complex family tree. I also want to say that because this is a fantasy book series, I have only used the family tree section, so I can't rate those areas. This rating and reveiw is only for the actual tree section, which I really liked

- Overwhelmingly Informative

It’s easy for someone like me to get addicted to this app. The makers are continually tantalizing me with new information that is usually pertinent. Consequently, I’ve found over 10,000 people who are likely relatives. They’ve found plenty in America, but none of the relatives I know of in Italy or Spain. The number of generations that are tracked are limited to a degree - you can find ancestors 20 generations back, but they may not be flagged as ancestors and it may be frustrating to print out every part of a tree. The most irritating aspect is that they will show the mother’s maiden name, but won’t automatically add it to their profile. You will have to copy it by hand. After years, and thousands of users, why haven’t they fixed this bug?

- It’s useful but too expensive

I don’t really work on my family tree outside of my vacations so buying a whole year for the price for me it’s a NOPE. I get that there’s quite useful stuff for premium accounts but most of the useful things for me have been put by other users or I investigate by myself online. I also reached the limit of members already since I put my 2 families. I don’t know for what I have been experiencing on the free version I just don’t think it’s worth it. If there was just a light and way cheaper version where I could just connect to my other relatives matches (that i have added as contacts and are working on their own fam tree) and the info they put and more relatives space, that would be amazing. For now I think I might just find another app.

- Impressed

Pleasantly surprised how easy it is to use the MyHeritage app. Am using the free version for now, hoping to enter as many family members and data as I have on hand. Probably and most likely will subscribe at a later point. Seriously interested in having my DNA tested too. Nice to see family tree expand, love the ability to add profile picture to each family member. This app lets you use family sharing, that’s a plus in my book. Give it a 5 + star rating and will recommend this app to anyone that is getting started on their family genealogy.

- Terrible

As someone who needs HELP filling in the blanks with regard to relationships. From a family full of divorce and several affairs that led to various “illegitimate” children including my father and several others that are genetically related but adopted - this family tree builder is HORRIBLE. You can’t edit relationships like marriage - it automatically assumes my grandmother married the man she had an affair with (my paternal grandfather). I also have two half brothers. This doesn’t help me to research but I’d rather a hindrance. I also tried doing this through their mobile website but not getting anywhere. Ancestry isn’t perfect but it’s much more workable than this. I’m glad I didn’t pay for this before committing to anything more than a few nights. Maybe my family dynamics are too difficult but this has been nothing but frustrating.

- Good but not yet great

I love this App. I have over 26,000 entries and it handles them well. The search is good but seems to ignore important search values like dates. The Discover option is nice but I’d like to be able to turn some searches off. I get over 80 discoveries for some people (notably LDS) and, while I don’t have an issue with it I really tire of dealing with them. Even when I go through all 80 discoveries for a particular person a few days later there are 84 more for the same person! That is not ok. In searches there is the option to select just family tree returns and that is very helpful. I would love to see the option of selecting the how many branches off the direct line. There is not good tracking of direct ancestors and I’ve found the only good way is to assign a special picture for all Direct ancestors. That way when I look at the various trees I can always find my direct lines. I doubt the tracking with a special icon would be difficult. Direct Ancestor tracking seems to fall apart after 8-12 generations and it would be nice to see that addressed.

- Feeling whole

Recently I have been feeling lost not knowing my heritage... You know when you feel something is missing and you can’t quite put your finger on it. I was raised in a military family which kept me a way from my extended family most of my childhood. By the time my dad retired I only had one grandparent left and that was my maternal grandmother. She has slowed down spike very little and died about 2-3 years after we settled down... So my connection to my past seemed closed... Thank you heritage for the opportunity to reconnect.

- Useless unless you pay

While you can use my heritage to make a family tree (up to 250 people I believe I read) and store photos, if you (like many others who want to use a service like this) are looking for the matches to complete a family tree and see more details than you know you have to pay their subscription price. The functions that this app and service provides is absolutely useless if you don’t want to pay up front. My experience with this app was overall disappointing: I put in the information that I knew and was told there was a match to one of my relatives. I tap the “check match” and immediately get thrown into a “pay for this service!” type of deal. I have absolutely no idea if it’s even worth paying for as it gives you so little details it’s almost like you’re gambling if you pay for it (am I going to get an accurate match with details? Or am I going to pay and get absolutely nothing?) On top of this the family tree portion of the app felt awkward to use and many times I couldn’t even position the view where I wanted so my family tree was mostly off screen. Don’t waste your time with this app.

- Love the MyHeritage app!

This is a great app for creating a big family tree for free. It automatically creates discoveries for you and helps expand your tree by finding your relatives in other peoples public trees and in historical documents. If you have been DNA tested, they have great tools in their app for learning about your ethnicity and for finding and communicating with your DNA relatives. Bottom line - It’s clear that MyHeritage pays a lot of attention to its mobile app, keeps innovating it and really cares about the experience of its users. Highly recommended.

- Disappointed

Attempted to use this app to build a family tree. I was drawn to the idea of being able to use photos for each member. I clicked to add a photo, selected photo, cropped the photo, clicked save and it wouldn’t show or save. It just showed a wheel spinning like it was loading. I tried it at least 5 times for multiple people on my tree. I finally got it to work and saved. I came back the same day, and everything was there. I was excited. The next day (today) I come back and most of the pictures and relationship were gone. Thankfully, I didn’t put a ton of time into this project. Disappointed with the apps save feature and disappointed that it isn’t always user friendly.

- Nice..but..

So I totally understand that these things cost money to maintain and process etc. I imported my DNA from another source, so I know I didn’t pay for anything here. Keeping that in mind I wish they had a free trial period or a way to pay monthly. It seems that everything I click leads to a “pay for this” link and it just keeps adding crap to my cart when all I’m trying to do is LOOK at something. Even when I was just trying to sign up it kept looping back to a page to buy a kit or a subscription. It’s very annoying. A free trial, say 2 weeks, and the ability to pay monthly would be ideal and in my opinion get more subscribers. People would be able to see if they like the interface, get hooked on clicking matches and discoveries (you do get hooked!) and be more willing to pay for a subscription instead of feeling like it’s being shoved in their face at every click. The devs should keep in mind that every tidbit of information added by people enhances their service. If they are annoyed at every click they aren’t going to add much

- Lingo

I admit I am new to this, however, there are search words I don’t understand. Also, when I think I’m getting somewhere, you ask for more money. I purposely asked if this was going to happen BEFORE I bought the kit. I was told, absolutely not! I wasn’t on here 5 minutes and already was navigated to pay extra for that info. Poor customer service. Another huge problem I’ve had is getting someone on the phone! You say your there 24/7, but no one ever answers. If your number 10 in the que, you stay there until the battery on your phone goes dead. This is the most frustrating part of the whole deal! You have a multimillion dollar business here, HIRE MORE PEOPLE TO MAN THE PHONES!

- Billy Wade(George Willis Wade Jr)

I have to give MyHeritage a 5-Star rating. I’ve been getting numerous DNA match notifications and I’ve been able to connect with so many cousins. Many of my family and cousins I grew up with never knew about all these cousins. They are extremely surprised when they find out what I have found. MyHeritage is the best and has, thus far, been everything I’ve expected. I still don’t know how to navigate through every aspect in the site, but what I have done is good quality.

- Addictive

I’ve had a longtime interest in knowing my roots. In almost all branch of my tree I could only go back no more than five generations. I knew that most of my lineage was German and British and I was told there was some American Indian. I started this journey about five years ago. Almost instantly, after entering what I knew, I started getting matches. I am now reaching 14 generations on both my mother’s and father’s sides. At the last check I have 18,000 matches. I also found that my ancestors were all in North America by 1700. More interesting is that my American Indian Heritage includes my 13 Great Grandmother Pocahontas and several other well known Powhatan, Cherokee, and Shawnee Nations. I’ve also found ancestors that are in the history books, royalty, assorted scallawags, many hero’s, etc.

- Help

I am now on my third time attempting to get my tree straightened out. Whenever I confirm somebody it’s great, however if their name comes up again and I want to just save new info, I find I have them listed in another place. Is there anyway I can just merge this info. I have gone as far back as 25 generations and have assigned a number to each generation, I really don’t want to start all over. If I can merge I am willing to go in and erase all generation numbers assigned to each individual. I called and was on line with one of your associates and she stated I was doing everything correctly. Please advise, pretty frustrated at this time. 1,2,3,sometimes 4 of sam person

- Can no longer search my tree

Latest version of app 5.7.4 has a bad tree search function. Since this morning my tree search function no longer has a drop down menu. For example if I search for the name John, it should give me multiple choices for John in my tree, now the entire search function has stopped working on both iPad and iPhone and no matter what name I search for, there is no searching available. Therefore I cannot use the app at all now, as I cannot go to any person in the tree. This app version is totally dead. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled and it still does not work. Please fix it ASAP back to what it was and stop playing around with it. Thanks.

- A RIP-OFF - Updated

I built my family tree using the free PC version that is offered. The app wants a minimum $99 per year for the basic pacjpkage with no option to opt out. I have used MyHeritage (PC version)for over 10 years and I can tell this is a complete RIP-OFF! This program is second class at best when compared to other genealogy programs and resources. - The developer contacted me using this lame and canned response. UNREAL! The PC version allows the user to use it without a subscription and this app does not. If they want me to change my review, then allow me to use the app (e.g.: access the tree I created already) without the need for an overpriced annual subscription. If you the develop can’t do that, then my review stands.

- Scam

After an initially impressive demo, whereby I was shown a few of my relatives on my tree, the app demanded an upfront annual payment of 100 dollars. I paid this as a (late) Christmas present to my family as a whole, being a student on low income. After paying, the app was then unable to add anything further to my tree - I tried to add various relatives manually (and correctly), in the hope that I would be offered another extension to my tree. This did not occur; essentially, I’ve paid 100 dollars and haven’t gained anything more than a glorified piece of paper on which I can draw this tree. I would love it if the MyHeritage team could cancel my membership and refund the payment, as at present, this is simply abhorrent.

- Constantly logs you out

Like many other complaints here and elsewhere, my number one issue with an otherwise decent app is the fact that you are logged out often just by switching between apps even for less than a minute, sometimes after 5 minutes of going back and forth. So long as the app is open you should remain logged in. This is a serious flaw for people who are trying to perform research and otherwise use the app. I cannot understand how the company hasn't yet addressed this serious flaw in all of its many updates.

- Angela

I don’t really know where to go from here. I thought there was a link to share my Tree & DNA Profile with other services like this one. I’m looking for several family members. If they used a different service, how do I link people together? I cannot find any information to do that. The Premium Package is too expensive! I’m not gonna want this company to share my DNA with the Government. I know you keep the extra sample vial. I do not give you permission to share my DNA with any government entities or Big Pharma Companies! I just found out that some Hinky Things are happening with these DNA Companies. I would have given 5 Stars if it wasn’t so expensive and I am at a dead end if I don’t cough up a huge amount of money. I need information about searching adoption records, as my mother was adopted. I don’t see anything in the app to find out my next step.

- Service is okay, but app is *frustrating*

There are some serious UI problems that suggest to me that whoever develops this app doesn't actually use it. First, on iPad, if I go to the family tree view, there is no obvious way to get out of it aside from force closing the app and starting over. On the iPhone there is a hamburger menu at the top left. Second, there is a "pop-up" view to input messages on iPhone and iPad, and (1) on iPhone if you swipe up from the bottom (i.e. try to use the iOS app switcher) the app can interpret that as "swiping away" the draft window, erasing the message you just laboriously entered. (2) on iPad, it will delete your message if you tap *anywhere on the screen other than the draft window*?!? This is particularly frustrating in a genealogy app where you're trying to check information as you draft a message. It's infuriating losing several paragraphs of thought because of poor UI design.

- Not free like it said! It’s MY free info FOR “MYHERITAGE” to sell to others!! 😡

Sooooo..... it’s NOT free like it said?!😡 MyHeritage just wants ALL the info I CAN GIVE THEM, for free.... so they can turn around and “sell” the info to others who may be related! 😡 Hell, if that’s the case...Why go with a small company? I might as well go with one of the top two genealogical sites! I WAS looking for a place to share my history with... I have land grants, names, photos, journals, military papers, birth & death records, business papers, maps, land maps, etc. back to the 1600’s that I want to share so it’s not all lost when I die.... and so that other relatives may have access to it for FREE as well throughout the years.

- Amazed

Someone told me that search in the past it’s dangerous because you never know what you would find. All the contrary I am amazed about all the findings I cross over My Heritage. My genealogy three has 300 people all my ancestors goes back to the 1700. My Heritage It is very helpful because I can search for dates names they even have pictures that I can add to my three. I can say I am addicted to the my Heritage.

- Time Travel

I love reading time travel novels so when I started my ancestry discovery journey, it was like traveling back in time to meet real people in real places. My family history was lost to me when my parents died and I have regrets that I wasn’t interested in learning more than I did. With DNA results, computers and internet, it’s so fast and efficient to trace one’s roots now. Problem is, it’s addicting, but in a good way.


I Love my heritage! & I have the annual upgrade which is definitely worth it and one of the best rates compared to competitors. However I must say the website is much better than the mobile app. The mobile app is wonderful but it could use some improvements & updates to have at least some of the detail that the website has. Overall, I am impressed. It is my favorite and primary genealogy site! & the customer service is always attentive and helpful! 😋

- Geneology

I am very much enjoying my experience on My Heritage! It has become a fun and interesting hobby for me. You start the tree and My Heritage provides you with info to help you move along. Before you know it, you are reading documents like census info and newspaper articles about your ancestors! It will cost you some money, but if you're really interested in learning about your heritage, it's really worth it!!

- DNA Plus Super Easy Family Tree SofWare

I started with just wanting our DNA info and gained a great family tree. My Heritage makes it so much easier than others I’d started with. All the “discoveries” came to me without seeking and it became an exciting journey to feel a part of history unfold in my family. The love for my state of Texas comes blood born with the revelation of being related to one who gave his life in the Alamo, Col. Travis. Who knew.

- Plus and Minus

I am going through a learning curve with the tree. I just haven’t learned much yet about the research side. I am so use to Ancestry that this site seems more difficult. I absolutely love the DNA analysis and the fact that I can download DNA tests from other companies to my heritage, that I did years ago. An interesting thing, to me anyway. My ex-husband did a test with 23&me I never Questioned the matches, until I was able to download to MyHeritage. Myheritage pointed out that my ex was either my father or my son, This can’t be! DNA doesn’t lie but people do! There’s a story here! Another thing. You notified me that someone tried to access my account. I so appreciate that notice. Thank you Also love the fan tree, but wish I could print it to 8.5 x 11 page format.

- The best Family Tree

I switched from Ancestry to My Heritage for numerous advantages. The search capacity far greater in my humble opinion. The simplicity for new tree builders and to create you family heritage is so easy. Try it out and you will see why. Run into any difficulty, the support team will be of enormous help and no question is too stupid. They are to help you find your ancestors and will make it fun for you.

- Fun to Explore

As I have gotten older and all of my mothers siblings are now gone I can’t help but wonder about her family and my dad‘s family tree. So I am in adventuring out with my heritage and really enjoying it. I am sharing the information with my cousins children and grandchildren and hopefully someday they will have a record of our family for generations.

- App functionality is good but customer service is poor

I don’t have complaints about the app itself. But I ordered and returned the associated DNA test in February 2018. Although results were promised in a few weeks, there were no results back after 2 months. I used the app tool to contact the company to inquire about next steps. Crickets. It’s now another 2 months and I have no DNA results and no response. Very disappointing. —————————— After posting this review, customer service contacted me, confirmed that my DNA test hadn’t ever been received, and sent me a new one at no charge. Customer service was gracious and helpful. Thank you!

- Profound Loathing of their Customers

Contrary to the app developer’s response below, sharing the tree without providing access to one’s contacts *is not* an option in iOS. If I had the ability to post screenshots here I would do so to illustrate this shortfall. This app does in fact require its paying customers to provide access to their contacts in order to invite a family member to see their family tree. The only reason for doing this is that they want to further exploit their customers’ data. This company lacks any appreciation for its customers and is clearly led by horrible greedbags.

- Amazing !!!!!!!!!!!

I thought for over 30 yrs I was Italian but it turns out I am Greek. Which did explain certain suspicions I had wondered about since a kid. Myheritage is so excellent I not only discovered my heritage but exactly where my ancestors had traveled too and hailed from. I also discovered various other races in my profile I’d never guess was there. I highly recommend myheritage.

- My experience with MyHeritage

It has been a thrill a minute utilizing the MyHeritage app! First, the price was something I could afford being on a fixed income. Then the DNA matches started coming, and coming! It seems like new matches are being added every day! I’m so glad I took the opportunity to try MyHeritage! Maybe you should try MyHeritage too!!

- Very fun

Lots of great ways to find out about yourself and family. Would give 5 stars but don’t like how you have to sign up for whole year. Especially if you want the discounts and full access. It only took me two months to exhaust all leads for family tree. Overall worth the money for family history work my kids don’t have to do.

- Only good for viewing tree. Use website.

Better to use the website. You can do research in this app, but when you find something there's no button to save the record like there is on the website. You can "confirm" discoveries, but there's no screen to add the new information to your tree. Honestly, I'm not exactly sure what this app is for when it lets you do 90% of the work but then doesn't let you do anything with the results, so all of that work was in vain. Why does it get 5 stars from so many people? Is my version buggy?

- Pretty good, but some annoying things

Overall I like the service but I wish they would make it clearer which features are premium. It’s annoying to click on a feature only to find out that it’s premium. The plans are pretty expensive so there is a lot of info they won’t let you see without paying the big bucks.

- Pretty Neat App!

Never thought I’d know about a lot about my history but this app does come up with some interesting nuggets quite often. Confirmed my parents limited info on our history and a whole lot that they were not aware of. Evidently my forbears were QUITE prolific on the Johnny Appleseed theory by the looks of my earth-wide ancestors and relatives😝

- It’s okay

I was hoping for so much more after doing my DNA test. It seems I have to continuously update the same people every time I log onto this site. Over 999 discoveries and they are all the ones in my tree already. Too repetitive. My first tree had photos and several families when it all disappeared and I was not able to recover them. Even though I’ve added the close families I cannot find them unless I type their name and then ‘see their tree’.??? Shouldn’t they be visible so I can update info? Or add photos? This set up is impossible to figure out. I wish there was a way to just delete all theses repetitive and useless discoveries and an easier way to just add people - once!

- My Heritage APP

This APP is really useful and it’s great for research and communication when you are away from your PC. I also feel My Heritage is the best testing site available as well as the most accurate. It accurately estimated my ethnicity based on my genealogy and I love the way My Heritage displays triangulated matches. This a fantastic APP which I highly recommend.

- Searches go blank

Started a free trial and loving all the information available. BUT, when searching on the app, it’s hit or miss if the results page will load. It just opens up blank. I am receiving the same issue using the website except that instead of a blank page, it shows a message: “Oops, looks like something went wrong. Please edit your search details or start a new search.”

- Searching over 100 years...

Ever since my grandmother arrive in the USA, our USA has been trying to connect with her family that she left behind on Poland. My cousin and I traveled to Poland in 2014 to connect with her family. We had no luck in finding our relatives. This past week.... I connected with her family!!

- Almost perfect!

If direct ancestors were in bold, underlined, or in a different color, it would be perfect. As your family grows, it’s kind of a mess to find your direct line. Also it’s not easy to add data without having to go back through many screens to get back. Otherwise it’s really a good app. I like to work on it on the bus or subway or when I’m at work.

- Vision issues

The only real problem I have is the color selections and contrast settings that I can’t control and are very difficult for me to distinguish because I am legally blind. This is not a particularly accessibility friendly app. Otherwise, it works great and I like it better than some of the others, if I could just get past the contrast issues.

- Family history

Have been using my heritage now for 2years and am very happy with it. Very easy to use as I can’t even copy and paste. Have found so much invaluable info and fab photos of decendantsvgraves have even made contact with relatives from my dna which I can definately verify.

- Who’s Patrick Hanley

😡😡😡😡For some reason I’m unable too make any contact with any of your website’s or able to find any contact information! I’ve tried replying to your notifications but all it says is your message couldn’t be delivered!!? 😡You’ve proceeded to go & put this name Patrick Hanley as my name! I’m not sure how you could make such a mistake! This is not my name, it resembles nothing close! yet in my family’s tree you’ve displayed this name as my parents child, believe me there not very happy because interestingly I have a brother also & he’s name isn’t shown, can u please change this monumental mistake, Then I’ll change my rating & feedback! But until then! If there’s anybody really there! It stays here just like the name that isn’t mine! Please rectify...

- Disappointed

I have a few gripes but have to commend the creator for an app that is very promising. I am disappointed that I can’t print off the family tree and parts of so I can compile it for family in the future. I find the ‘display family tree’ options needs to have more options. I would love to have more information on the tiles when on display, like birthdate, occupation and place. Even though I paid for a discounted amount (which I thought was substantial), I would have thought that would’ve allowed me to access the whole lot, but then I find that I have to pay $100+ to access the information you really want.

- DO NOT PURCHASE SUBSCRIPTION- They do not honor payment through Apple

After having a purchased a second year PremiumPlus subscription through the app, it was not applied or honored to my account. They say they have not received payment & refuse to investigate or take any responsibility why their app is making such offers, & continues to do so. They were rude and told me they do not receive payment ever from Apple & to make purchases through their website. They do not return your calls or reply to emails. Do not give them your credit card details. I paid via PayPal & have now opened up dispute resolution to get my money back. Thank god for Paypal.

- Glitch free

The MyHeritage site is very user friendly even though it deals with many different aspects of genealogy. It is constantly expanding the techniques offered to help track down family links. Very impressive!

- My Heritage

I am the first person from my family to look into my history. I am mind blown at the amount of accurate information ‘My Heritage’ has. I now feel a connection to my ancestors that I never felt before.

- Not a fan

The App is not user friendly and you always end up in an advertisement for an upgrade which is so annoying. It’s confusing to use and links that don’t seemingly work. I will persevere but I’m not loving it so far. ( Be good if they had a home button! The desktop site might be better than App?) App needs work. It’s not cheap either I reckon the basic version should do more at that price.

- Awesome

Quite amazing to find so many relatives that I had heard about as a child. I had been reluctant to get involved in anything to do with my past, but now that I have started, I find that it’s quite a wonderful, never ending jig saw puzzle.

- Enjoy using this app!

After doing a couple of two week trials I finely made a commitment to sign up for a year. Enjoy having something to do that I find relaxing, and time filling, when a have some moments to spare.

- Loving MyHeritage❤️

Absolutely loving MyHeritage❤️ Have got family members interested, and growing!! Finding out really interesting stuff and surprises!! Have found additional family!! Learning something new each day!!

- Left with questions

Found DNA results have raised some questions. I know for a fact l have a Negro ancestor so was surprised that did not show up, as my blood type is not Atypical for British, Celtic or Scandinavian heritage either. It will be interesting to find what comes up when my Mum and Brother are tested. Happy days

- Good but..

1. It keeps saying I’m a robot and making me do those tests that are longer than ones on other websites 2. I dont understand why you can only open one instant discovery in like a day we pay what like over 200 bucks for it so why cant we get our moneys worth?? 3. A lot of the times when I open a record match it wont scroll down properly. it keeps going back up to the top unless i do it quickly with two fingers. i dont know if this is just my phone tho i like the new photo update thats cool

- The wonders of MyHeritage

MyHeritage is user friendly, which means it is easy to navigate. I enjoy it many tools on offer which enables you to locate relationships deep into the past. Well done, MyHeritage! Thumbs up!

- Meh

Very disappointed in the ‘results’. What i was hoping for was a more detailed document with more information about genetics, race, how our dna shapes us etc. My dog’s dna test actually had a 10 page report with way more information on his breed, genetic desease predisposition , etc. Seems like other services like ‘My DNA’ give much more information than this. Very disappointed and not recommended. Look for an alternate service!

- BruBlacky

Finding new relatives and family through MyHeritage has been fantastic! It has been a great app for assembling our family tree and searches

- Surprisingly Accurate

Only just started using the app (free version)and it seems quite accurate. Only complaint is the yearly price to sign up to receive further information...

- Full of surprising discoveries

Since registering with the website and conducting a DNA test, I have discovered many relatives. I really like the information on ancestral surnames to show where discoveries are linked. Easy to use, worth the monthly fee, and love researching new findings

- My Heritage

I have found this App to be very good at finding my ancestors, that I have found it hard to keep up with all the information they send me. I love it.

- My Own Heritage

This app help find and know people who are ‘family’ that are far off and may not have been known about. Just beautiful.

- Buxton

I’m only new but enjoying the fascination of find distant family matches as I have no brothers and sisters and my parents have past away This is exciting journey to distant relatives for me

- Concerning Information

I made a family tree on this app for a school project and realised that they were posting the content that I wrote on the online website. It was a personal project and I used Pictures that didn’t need to be shared I am very disappointed in this app for sharing my information to a public website and making money of it.

- Excellent

I have been using my heritage for so many years that I can remember. The best feature for me is the matching from other sites

- DNA Test Questions Left Unanswered

My DNA test results said I was 87% Scandinavian and 13% Iberian and that’s it. I have rang them and emailed them as I thought the results would be more detailed than that. They have still not answered my questions and it’s been over a year now. Very disappointing! The app works well but very very expensive!!

- Latest version of app

Hi, how do I load the latest version of an existing app on my iPad if it doesn’t automatically update? Thanks

- Amazing app

Amazing application to meet family after years of distancing for work and family palming and personal encounters

- My heritage

Wow love the way the site works.. very easy to use and it was fantastic to be able to upload my DNA and follow up leads. Amazing so thank you all

- Support

Great help and feedback when required. Understand we are not all computer literate. Thank you.

- My little (extraordinary) helper 😊

MyHeritage is enabling and supporting me to finally get my family tree organised. So many options and facilities. Extraordinary software!

- User Friendly

Have found MyHeritage easy to use and so much of the research is done for you.

- Good choice

I have found My Heritage very easy to navigate and their relative discovery suggestions are really helpful.

- Records

Like the way we can explore people through Search Records and Matches.

- I have an issue

I like the app except there is an issue with searching when both birth and death dates are imputed in the search form. It displays a “page not found”. One other issue no way of contacting support about app faults

- Easy to use

Would have used it earlier

- DNA Test Video

Where is the video for it I would love to see my results as the video?

- Exciting!

I have found hundreds of family connections through My Heritage and love the DNA matching feature.

- Review

Easy and simple to use! Thank you!!!

- Unable to use on iPhone 6

App loads but all it wants is for me to upgrade subscription. Can not open family tree or anything else. Not happy.

- Ancestry

It is fun and fascinating to find out your Ancestry.

- App won't open at all since upgrade

App won't open at all since upgrade

- Don’t waste your time

Unless you are prepared to pay a lot of money don’t bother downloading this app. Free information is only names no access to anything useful unless you pay... its a shame as it looked promising...

- Expensive!

Why is it so expensive! And it is an annual fee and not a one off. If you want more people to use your site at least make it considerably cheaper and have a low monthly fee!

- Scam Alert

Do not start a free trial They will charge you exorbitant fee for nothing Unless you want to spend $200 dollars on nothing just for having a look at the free trial go ahead and use this app! absolute scam!

- Carmen site

I love it but it’s a bit expansive to upgrade.

- My heritage

I would like to see more updates for DNA or more for it other the. That is all right

- Patrick Bryan

It’s wonderful thank you.

- MyHeritage is awesome.

Firstly for all those people who are hung up on the cost or felt they were scammed. Cry a river build a bridge and get over it! You must be clueless. Almost all vendors and businesses. Get you a trial period and in the fine print they tell you ... If you don't cancel before the trial period you will be debited. So how do you get around this: 1. Evaluate the product and cancel within the trial period. or sign up for a certain period. 2. Create an account go into account settings and set it to manual payment. Now you won't get any surprises. 3. Call support for whatever you evaluating or subscribing to and get them to confirm that you account will not automatically be billed for 6, 9, 12 months. Ok I've finished my rant. I use four family history sites/programs in conjunction with each other. They all have their strengths & weaknesses. I prefer MH over the other for new discoveries, alerts, and comparing records. I move these records to the MH client & my AQ14 database on my laptop. AQ 14 has better family group sheets. I recommend MyHeritage to newbies and die hard genealogists.

- 👍🏻

Good app, but tried deleting people and it wouldn’t let me

- I don’t recommend

As they changed my trial period and start to charge me....without previous notice...

- OS?

Still waiting to use with MacBook

- Useless

Can’t use the site on the free trial so how am I supposed to know if I’d like it??

Payoneer 💰

Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!

- I found a half aunt

Thank you to your great work I found a half sister to my dad❤️❤️

- Too expensive

The product was originally free for almost everything. Now its ridiculously expensive. The suggested matches rarely are even close. If you live in the U.S. you will likely get the best results. Anywhere else, don’t expect much for what you have to pay for subscriptions.

- In app purchases too much

Interesting app and easy to use; however, the monthly fees to upgrade is too much. Additional data to family should have been free.

- Useless

Over priced for what offered after free trail. Found more information on my ancestry on Google.

- My family name

I finally found what my families name was ! Thank you . I recommend it to anyone looking for family info .

- Not worth the money, corrupt business model.

Very disappointed with this product. They separate family tree drawing from data/research. To have both is extremely expensive. Without access to data, it’s an expensive drawing tool. Some free options are actually better. Of course, they profit from data you enter. How’s that for a corrupt business model?

- Be careful of your money

While the introductory level of this app gives little better than the free FamilySearch app what you really need to watch out for is their sharp business practices. When you want to cancel your (free) trial subscription, they offer you a 14 day free extension with the assurance that you will be alerted before the 14 days is up with the implication that you can then cancel without charge. You will not be advised until the time is already up and then only to congratulate you on your subscription which can be cancelled a year later. Good-bye $189!

- Ms. D Zaide

The absolute worst DNA site. In our family we subscribe to all 4 of the popular sites. This, by a long shot has the worst customer support.

- Family tree

Since taking out a membership my tree had doubled! And in one short month

- Outrageously expensive

The basic features offer nothing more than a little data input and being immediately pushed to upgrade for $300 seems a little scandalous. Deleted this after entering immediate family and not being able to confirm my dad without upgrading.

- Good overall

I’m quite happy with this app. All the categories have worked very well so far, no glitches. Well done.

- 3:30

Great program. Love doing genealogy. All the best. Leah

- Usability

It advertises as world access but primarily USA. Not helpful

- Still asking for upgrade!

I opened this app and finding it initially excellent, upgraded it. Now I am continuously asked to upgrade it whenever I want to do anything. There is NO contact détail to take this up - hence my review. PLEASE READ THIS

- Unauthorized payments??!!!

Completely awful. I’ve only visited this cite once and immediately deleted after I saw how overly expensive it was. Then tonight - a week or more later I get an email from my PayPal account saying $101.00 had been payed to MyHeritage? No authorization from me at all, that’s for sure. Do not get this app the quality is poor and all they want is your money. Ancestry is WAY better.

- Colorize black and white photos

Great feature!! Love it

- Absolutely amazing!

Through discoveries, I’ve found whole branches of my family that I didn’t even know existed. Great software!!

- Good for photos only

Poor data compared to The photo program can be very good depending on the type of photo. Wayyyyy to expensive. Wish I hadn’t purchased this.

- Nuestro Árbol Genealógico

Excelente estoy agregándonoslo uno a uno tratando de ser lo más exacto al suministrar los datos mis felicitaciones para la persona que llevo acabo esto

- Ritchie Smith Family Tree

Been a long time member fo 10 yrs which I started with only325 people and now I have close to 45000 people and back to the 1200 century and finding more very day

- Amazing

I spend hours finding new information every time I log in. I’m amazed at the details and documents they have found regarding my family members. Happy 😃

- Genealogy buffs will be excited about this photo feature!

Love,love,love this app that colonized old black and white photos so quickly!

- Review

I’m impressed

- Utilisateur satisfait

Fonctionne bien et facile d’utilisation

- Expensive thought the photo ai was free

I think it’s great that we can you use some of the free but to much . Yes sale is in order?

- Great but having trouble updating information

Need help updating information please. Thank you


I uploaded my husbands raw DNA from Ancestry to My Heritage. Ancestry said his DNA was Baltic and and A small number of Russia. My Heritage said he was 48% British and 36 % Italian. The reason British is so high is because he was born there to refugee parents. His parents are both from Latvia. Father from Riga mother from Leipaja. There are no Italians in his family, German yes. Carol

- Ridiculement trop cher

C'est complètement fou comment cet abonnement est hors prix. J'ai été assez stupide pour m'abonner il y a une couple d'année parce que je voulais trouver des informations supplémentaires. J'ai déjà un arbre très complet alors je n'ai rien trouvé de valable. Mais même si on ne fait plus de recherche, il faut continuer à payer le gros prix de l'abonnement juste pour y avoir accès sur la tablette ou le téléphone. C'est ridicule. Une fois les recherches faites, il se peut qu'on ait besoin de vérifier une ou deux chose par année mais c'est hors prix. Vive la bonne méthode papier qui demeure.

- Way too much money!

The app is wonderful. It has enough people using it to have people add to your tree. Easy to use but $200 per year is criminal. You have to do the top package or you quickly run out of room for allotted number of people in the tree.

- MyHeritage

Great resources available. Printing “books” lacks the ability to print trees of siblings, would be nice to have a bit more flexibility. PDF files sizes are huge, but can be run through online PDF compressor such is I Love PDF. There’s a glitch in the software. You can tag an email for each person in your tree, but software does not allow you to delete it afterwards if you decide to omit it. Overall, has great online resource to search out ancestry.

- Limiting!

I hate how it is always telling you there are matches, and takes you through the process to connect the match, but then tells you you need to increase your level of account!!

- Adding adoptive and biological parents

Dear team, I just started to build my family tree and I had to stop when I realize that I could not add adoptive and biological parents ... could you please help me find out?

- Easy to use!

I’m finding lots of cousins and I’ve just started! I love that it takes other companies dna results.

- Use Ancestry instead

This service is missing a lot of critical features that are in Ancestry. For example, the ability to prioritize record sets or eliminate record sets from searches. The result is that irrelevant data from US datasets swamps the relevant data from the UK. The data is no more accurate than that in Ancestry. They must use the same transcriptions because they contain the same errors. Too bad you have to sign up for an entire year before you can find out these limitations. I would have discontinued it after a month if they offered a monthly subscription. Bottom line: use Ancestry instead.

- Sign in problem

Why can I only sign in on my desktop computer and no where else?!?!? When I use my email and password on my iPad or iPhone your website won’t let me in. Very frustrating!!!!!

- Very interesting and fun

I am quite enjoying doing some digging into my family tree

- Missing

Where did my family tree go? N why did I have to reset my password to login?

- Web site shows a different discount

Why would you not have your app offer the same discount as your website. I almost bought a subscription again but not interested anymore as you can’t seem to off the same Discount for the same product.

- Amazing service with drastically exorbitant price

I wish money were no object in life and I could take advantage of the intriguing services offered by this well-made application.

- I was able to retrace my up to 3 centuries ago

The documents available made possible for me to know the exact towns where my ancestors came from 4 different countries.

- Very quick research response time

I have had not been using MyHeritage for less than a month and have already added over 700 people to our family tree. I am amazed at how quickly the research tool will provide responses. Would like to be able to enter a date ranges.

- MyHeritage and Negative Reviews

MyHeritage offers some free services and if you are an Ancestry user, you can upload your raw DNA to MyHeritage for free. However MyHeritage seems inflexible in their packages being annual and my understanding is you pay more for bigger trees. They should address these negative reviews which seem off putting.

- Just received free kit

And looking forward to results

- Time Book was the best feature

I’m disappointed you got rid of the Timebook feature. It was an amazing way to bring an eatery to life by having the photographer in order. I always extra for unlimited photos. Now, I won’t bother because there is no way to showcase them.

- 👍


- My heritage review

Hello I am a very pleased customer of my Heritage I did my DNA test through them and was pleased with my results and with the timing that I got the results back They are a very good company and their site is easy to use. Jeanette Freeland

Automatic renewal scam cost me $199.00 stay away

- Fraudulent

I paid the $159.99 subscription but got no extra information than the free ones. Was told that I needed to pay more for that. Moreover my Visa showed $196.99.

How many of you maintain a family tree? I got inspired by my colleague @naikrakesh who does that as a ritual using a software and is quite elaborate. He recommends -


How to add an Emojis or Symbols to Your Family Tree on Ancestry or MyHeritage

Neesha 🦖

So I exported my family tree because wow has @MyHeritage gotten a lot more expensive and I'm debating what to do. The relationship field is not super useful (wish it exported names or IDs to parents) but lol on this entry.
