Welcome to the new AncestryPress! Many thanks to those of you who tried out the book building tool during the beta phase. The feedback you’ve provided over the past six months has helped us develop an application that is both robust and easy to use. Based on your suggestions, we’ve made the interface more intuitive and added many exciting new features. Please continue to send us your comments, questions and success stories.
I hope this blog will be a vibrant forum for discussion between AncestryPress customers and our product managers and developers. As the brand manager for AncestryPress, I look forward to hearing about your experiences creating and sharing your own personalized family history books. Please tell us what you like about the book building tool and what we might do to improve it. And please let us know what other types of output you would like to create in the future. We intend to offer a wide selection of gift products, and your input will help us focus our efforts.
Finally, I hope you’ll plan to join us for a free AncestryPress webinar on Thursday, November 1 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (6:30 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time). We’ll discuss tips and tricks for creating family history books and present ideas for framed gifts that you can make in less than an hour. A webinar sign-up link will be posted on this blog in mid-October.

NOTE: AncestryPress is now MyCanvas
In October 2008, AncestryPress was relaunched under the name MyCanvas. It is still a free, online software program provided by Ancestry.com. For current information about products and features, please see my more recent blog posts.
Here you will find informational, and sometimes fun, posts from the folks behind the scenes here at Ancestry.com. We hope you’ll notice just how passionate we are about family history and about the products we’re building to help connect families over distance and time.Visit Ancestry.com
