We built Family History Machine to tell our own Ruby family stories. Click over to the Blog page to explore scores of stories about our family that we investigated and shaped into discrete narratives. 

Navigate the family stories and blog posts according to family branch, story theme and investigative technique.

Follow the arc of one Jewish-American family's life over the span of generations and continents. Understand the challenges they faced. Experience their occasional small triumphs.

Our Ruby family has produced a lot of interesting characters, but no especially famous ones. Yet the stories of their lives, backed by solid research and told with nuance, become interesting even to a non-family audience. 

What are the interesting stories about your family? Would you want to share them, either in private with your family and friends or in public for all the world to see?
