Our Story is an online, multimedia timeline creation tool. Our Story is designed to be used as a way to collaboratively record the events in a person’s life or the genealogy of a family.

Like any good Web 2.0 product, Our Story timelines can be embedded into your blog or other website.
Applications for Education
Our Story could be used as a high school lesson in genealogy. Students interview their parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles to record the significant events in their family’s history. If a family member has a picture or a video record the student can include it in the timeline. Our Story is a collaborative tool so if a family member wants to get involved they can add details to the timeline.
