- The UK-based genealogy company Findmypast and Wall-to-Wall, the “Who Do You Think You Are?” TV show production company, are working together on Who Do You Think You Are? Story, a website to help you “produce” your family story. You’ll enter information about your immediate family and upload photos, and the site will play an “animated retelling” of your family story, including events that may have affected your family. It will draw from historical records and British newspaper articles at FindMyPast. You can be notified when the site launches by entering your email address on the Who Do You think You Are? Story website. Read more about the service on the Findmypast blog.
