Our manifesto—It is all about storytelling

Genealogy is not about the names and dates of your ancestors. It is about bringing those people to life in the context of their place and time. 

At Family History Machine, we think the way to do that is by telling stories about our ancestors. True stories, based on factual evidence, but woven into short, memorable narratives.

A family story can be about a particular event or span generations. The storyteller picks the story and the best way to tell it. 

We contend that it is more interesting to tell a bunch of short stories instead of one long one. 

There are eight million stories in the naked family tree. Visit this site for tools and inspiration for telling your family's stories.
