Has a discovery helped you connect with family?

If you and a family member used Ancestry® features, like our new tree collaboration tools, message center, or Storymaker Studio, we want to hear about it! Share your story with us, and you could be part of an upcoming Ancestry® marketing campaign or TV commercial.

1. Make a short video.

Not sure what to say or how to say it? Here are a few thought starters:

  • What Ancestry® features helped you collaborate with family?
  • Did working together on a family tree help speed up the process?
  • Have you created and shared a story using Storymaker Studio?
  • How has building a family tree together changed, strengthened, or shaped your relationship?
  • Has messaging a relative ever helped you break through a brick wall or lead to a surprising discovery?
