AncestryPress–Ancestry’s online self-publishing service–has a new name, MyCanvas, and a new website. You can check out the new site by clicking the “Print & Share” tab (formerly the “Publish” tab) on Ancestry.com. Customers who go to AncestryPress.comÂ will automatically be forwarded to MyCanvas.Ancestry.com.
While the site has a new look, the publishing program is virtually unchanged, except for a few additional features. You can still access your AncestryPress projects by going to the MyProjects page. As before, the publishing program is tightly integrated with Ancestry.com, allowing Ancestry members to automatically create family history books and family tree posters based on data, records and photos in their online trees. MyCanvas offers all of the products that were available in AncestryPress, plus a new custom cover photo book and an exclusive line of premium books for special occasions.
Premium family history books are available in an 11″x8.5″ format with a velvet or nubuck cover. Premium photo books are available in two sizes–11″x8.5″ or 8″x8″–and four cover types: velvet, nubuck, genuine leather or Japanese silk. Now through November 3, Ancestry members can save $50 on any premium book with this coupon code: MCPREM8.
