How it works

Trace your family story with a family tree—we make it easy.

Just start with
what you know.

Add a few family members to your tree, and we'll search for them in our record collections.

Add a few
family members.

Look for
the leaf.

The leaf is a hint—it means we've found something intriguing that may match your ancestor.

Get an Ancestry hint.

View the hint, and save it to your tree.

The hint could reveal a new name to search or even a new ancestor to add to your tree.

Explore the hint to learn
something new.

Watch your family story emerge.

The more you add, the more hints you get. And gradually your family story becomes clearer.

Watch your family
story emerge.

After all, your family story is the story that leads to you.

Unlock the family story in your DNA.

Your DNA can reveal your ethnic mix and ancestors you never knew you had—places and people deep in your past where records can't always take you. Try AncestryDNA, and get a new view into what makes you uniquely you.

But when Eric's AncestryDNA results said he was only 16%, Katherine took on the search and discovered an Eastern European ancestor he never knew he had.

Katherine and Eric used both AncestryDNA and a family tree to solve their mystery—how will you begin your journey?
