Upgrade Your AmericanAncesTREES Experience
Enjoying your AmericanAncesTREES experience, but want more features? Now you can upgrade a higher-level AmericanAncesTREES plan independently of your membership. Any purchased TREES plan is a 12-month subscription that begins immediately. All your existing TREES data will be safely converted into the new plan.
There are two options for purchased TREES plans:
The Advanced TREES plan removes all advertising from the tree screens, and increases the amount of media storage your tree holds to 5 GB.
The Premium TREES plan is also advertising-free, and offers DNA upload tools, the ability to make your tree private, and media storage up to 10 GB.
