Upgrading Your Account

American AncesTREES is a free service provided to account holders on AmericanAncestors.org. Sign up as a Guest (it's free), or buy a Membership on AmericanAncestors.org to begin creating your Tree.

Anyone can create and share a Standard Tree at no cost. However, you may wish to upgrade your tree to a paid version in order to take advantage of additional features. The Advanced Tree turns off ads and includes 2GB of storage, and the Premium Tree includes 10GB of storage and the option to set trees as private.

To upgrade your tree experience, click on your username in the top right of the screen, and then click "User settings." Scroll down until you see the section pictured below:

You can choose to upgrade to the Advanced Tree in one of two ways:

  1. Click "Purchase Advanced Tree" to purchase a one-year subscription without upgrading your AmericanAncestors.org account.
  2. Click "Upgrade My Membership" to change your American Ancestors account to a Contributing Membership. Contributing members receive the Advanced Tree as part of their member benefits.

You can also choose to purchase a one-year subscription to the Premium Tree by clicking "Purchase Premium Tree." This tree must be purchased in addition to your membership at any level.
