Select a membership plan
A gift that goes down in family history.
Keep in mind that this is a one-time, non-renewing membership and you will only be billed for the cost of the membership you select above.
A gift membership is a non-renewing membership paid for by one person (the gift-giver) to be used by someone else (the recipient), which gives the recipient access to Ancestry’s records and services for a period of time.
No. If a recipient wants to continue his or her Ancestry membership after the gift membership expires, he or she can sign up and pay for a regular, automatically-renewing subscription through one of Ancestry’s websites.
Only if it hasn’t yet been accessed by the original recipient. In that case, the gift-giver or recipient can transfer the gift membership and access code to someone else by contacting Member Services.
After you purchase a gift membership we will send you an order confirmation email with details you can share with your recipient. On the start date you've chosen we will send an email to your recipient telling them how to access the gift membership. Prior to the start date, you are welcome to notify the recipient that an email will be arriving with their access code, and that their subscription starts the date it arrives.
