Ancestry Product Update: LifeStory Changes

We introduced LifeStory last year to give you a better sense of what your ancestors’ lives were like. The auto-generated LifeStory does a lot of heavy lifting when translating facts and dates into a narrative of someone’s life but it really shines when you make it your own.

From the beginning, you’ve had full control of all the narrative snippets, had the ability to choose which Historical Insights you want to keep and enhance your ancestor’s story with photos. The end result has been a fast and intuitive way to display the rich tapestry of our ancestor’s lives.

Some of our members have shared that they would prefer to jump straight in to writing their own stories without the help of an auto-generated LifeStory. To enable this, we’ve recently added a new option to each tree’s settings page that allows you to enable or disable stories being generated for that tree.
