Ancestry.co.uk Customer Reviews
I'm a fan of Who Do You Think You Are? so it didn't take me long into the last series before I began wondering about my own family history. So I logged into Ancestry and signed up for the free trial. Within a few days I knew I'd become an annual premium member, and I have. I'm on this site nearly every day, tracking down new leads and tracing my family back to its roots in Italy and beyond. I also found family members I didn't know I had, and one great aunt had so much stored on Ancestry that I was able to pull from, so I have a really rich and vibrant family history recorded already. Ancestry.co.uk makes it so easy.
I was always curious about my family history, but never had the time or resources to sit down and dig into it. When my colleague told me about Ancestry.co.uk and all of the fantastic things she learned about her ancestors (one of them was at court with Queen Elizabeth I) I went home and signed up for a free trial straight away.
The site is fairly easy to use…you enter your family’s details into an interactive family tree graphic and if there’s a public record that matches your family member, you receive a “hint” in the form of a leaf next to their name. It was fascinating to view copies of the actual records mentioning my family, and I even found out that my great grandparents had three children who died before the age of five.
You really have to be patient in order to be successful using this site, as it takes hours and hours of digging through records and often can be quite frustrating. The end result is certainly worth it though, but you need a lot of time. The site charges a monthly fee after the free trial, so I’m hoping to complete my research quickly and not have to continue paying each month.
