  • History and DNA brought you to this moment..

    By Capt. Alzheimer
    I love Tracking my family back to Berry Pomery /Seymour castle in Devon England. I’ve visited the castle and carried away a curved piece of stone from the Seymour part of the castle. Now I find that Lord Thomas Seymour Admiral of the British Fleet, Is the man I Liberated my “Family’s Stone” from in Devon. It Weighs 75 pounds and I have moved it from Devan to Scotland to Colorado and New Mexico. I do care. That has always ben the family story about Being the decent of Richard Seymour , Educated in Devon England. The family story alleges he was a surveyor and left a small piece of property off the map. Ha! You can’t sell or deed real estate in English tradition if you don’t have a map.! Hi Seymour Connecticut! This story is passed on written and told at the Dinner table but having it backed up by DNA proof is great authentication of oral and written family HISTORY! My wife has nice cheek bones and sold herself as one quarter Cherokee Princess. DNA said not!!! So now We have no hope of living on the Reservation??? Don’t be afraid just do it.
  • One of the best apps ever

    So easy to use, edit, and create a tree. I have already found so many more family members since using Ancestry.
  • Great App

    I've been using the regular online version since 2007 and find the mobile app to work just as well. Over the years, I have had very few problems.
  • Great App

    Great App that lets me keep my family genealogy with me wherever I go. It keeps my family history at my finger tips. I would be lost without it.

    FTM is the best geneolgy work program I have tried The sync with with two data bases has enabled me to trace my line 500 years in many countries and conflicts. What I leave for my decedents Will be documented through Family Tree Maker.
