Findmypast and Wall to Wall to launch Who Do You Think You Are? Story website.
The Society has just received the following news of a new WDYTYA? venture
In celebration of the brand’s tenth birthday, leading family history site, findmypast.co.uk has teamed up with TV company Wall to Wall to create Who Do You Think You Are? Story. This site will allow all fans to create their own personalised Who Do You Think You Are? story quickly and easily, and share it with friends and family.
Fans simply need to add in the details they know about their own immediate family, and Who Do You Think You Are? Story will create a unique visual experience. Not only will it feature key events in their own family's history, but it will also pull in important contemporary issues which would have had an impact on their lives.
Wall to Wall has commissioned Findmypast to draw on its extensive archive of historical records, British newspaper cuttings, exclusive images, war records and much more, so that the commercial site Who Do You Think You Are? Story can bring history to life. The site will go live in the next few weeks but fans can sign up to receive news of the site's launch from today at http://www.whodoyouthinkyouarestory.com.
The site has been designed to cater for those who have done little or no family history research as well as those who have already started their own research
