Can You Use an Ancestry Gift Membership Yourself?
Actually, if you currently have a paid Ancestry subscription OR if you just have a free account, there are ways you can get an Ancestry Gift Membership for yourself!
Basically, for current Ancestry paid members, you will need to CANCEL your current membership and then use the Ancestry Gift Membership. You can set the start date for 90 days in advance – so this option only works if your current Ancestry paid membership expires soon. IMPORTANT: once you purchase the gift membership, you may need to contact Ancestry to have it linked to your existing Ancestry account!
