Where are Ancestris users ?

Ancestris users, who are we ?

Hard to say. Passionate people about Genealogy. People who want to leave something useful and interesting for their descendants.

Currently, the best option for you to make sure your genealogy will be able to transfer safely to next generations is to use Ancestris.

We do not want to depend on any software. We do not want our lifelong efforts to be locked in a software or a computer that can no longer be accessed or that we no longer pay for. We are all promoters of free genealogy.


Where are we?

An Ancestris users map was a great idea. For us at Ancestris, this is also a great recognition of our efforts to bring you this software, and we feel very proud every time we look at this map!

The map displays all users that wanted their name to appear on the map.

Worldwide Ancestris Users Map



How to make your name appear on the map?

The more we are referenced on the map, the better for all users.

To make your name appear on the map, please click on the map where you live. It will automatically copy the coordinates into the request form. Then click on the button that says "Please add me to the map!".

A form will appear. Just fill it in with the following information.

  • Your first and last name
  • Your geo coordinates. It should be already filled in from the previous right-click on the map.
  • Your city and country
  • Your email - necessary so we can reply to you.
  • You operating system (Linux, MacOS, Windows)

Press "Send request". It will send us an email that we will check and process.

We will reply to you when your name has been added.


What can the user community bring to you?

All of us are volunteers and we benefit from each others help. We help you. You help the others.

We constitute a great community and welcome new users. We have a positive spirit and are happy like this.

Feel free to post questions to the Forum or the Discussion list. We are usually very reactive.

Once you become a user, it would be great for you to be able to share your experience with other users. Have a look at the forum from time to time and you will see how easy it is to just help others.
