I'd like to access to access data programmatically on Ancestry.com.
Other sites provide their own APIs for this: e.g. MyHerigate has the Family Graph API http://www.familygraph.com/.
I can't find any indication that such an API exists on the Ancestry web site, but there is at least one site that seems to make use of such API: myCanvas.com.
if I select the "Family History Books" from the menu on MyCanvas and then click on one of the book options I get this: "We can use your family tree from Ancestry to automatically build your book or poster. This is the easiest way to get started on your family history book or poster. If you would like to use your Ancestry tree, please log in using your Ancestry account now."
So it seems the API exists, but maybe it's private?
Does Ancestry.com have a developer API? And if so, how can I get access to it?
