Storied: The Innovative New Family History Site

Welcome to this blog post for the 22 Steps in Researching Your Family Tree

A New Way To Create Your Family Tree

Are you curious about your family history but tired of the limited options provided by traditional genealogy sites? Look no further than Storied – an innovative new platform that goes beyond the basics of building a family tree and searching records. With Storied, you can explore relationships outside of the traditional family dynamic, connect with friends and colleagues, and share stories and memories with loved ones. In this blog post, we’ll explore the unique features of Storied and how they set it apart from other family history sites. Plus, we’ll take a closer look at the different plans available and what they offer. So let’s dive in and discover how Storied can help you uncover the untold stories of your life.

Storied offers all the traditional features of a family history site, such as building a family tree and searching historical records and newspapers. However, what sets Storied apart is its focus on storytelling and the ability to document all types of relationships, beyond the typical family dynamic.

The site is built on robust graph technology, which allows for the inclusion of relationships outside of traditional family members. This means you can add friends, co-workers, teachers, teammates, and anyone else who has played a significant role in your life. By including these important connections, you create a more complete family history that tells the story of your life in a way that goes beyond just names and dates.

At the heart of Storied are the stories themselves. No family history is complete without them, and Storied makes it easy to find, write, and share your own stories as well as those of your ancestors. The site also provides a way to collaborate with family and friends through private groups where memories, photos, and stories can be shared.

But Storied isn’t just about documenting the past. It’s also about creating a living history that can be shared with current and future generations. With Storied, you can easily add new stories as they happen, keeping your family history up-to-date and relevant.

Storied offers two subscription plans: Plus and Ultimate. The Plus plan, which costs $4.99 per month, includes features such as receiving clues about people in your family tree, recording your own stories, and accessing US historical records. The Ultimate plan, starting at $11.66 per month, includes all the features of the Plus plan, as well as access to UK historical records, over 3 billion newspaper articles, and a subscription to NewspaperArchive.

As reported in a recent article by Deseret News, Storied is an innovative new family history site that goes beyond traditional genealogy platforms by allowing users to document and share their personal stories with family and friends, as well as search for historical records and newspapers. Family history veteran and entrepreneur Kendall Hulet, who played a key role in the development of Storied, emphasizes the importance of stories in filling in the blanks of our lives and creating a more complete family history (Raymond, 2023).

My thoughts about the blog article above:

Storied, a new genealogy platform, has been launched to connect and unveil the untold stories of people’s lives. Kendall Hulet, the CEO of Storied, highlights that while genealogical research has become user-friendly and a plug-and-play process, the critical missing element to answering the question “who am I?” is the stories that illustrate a person’s life. Storied aims to make stories from family members and important people outside the family circle an integral part of building family histories. The platform offers tools to create, document, and share stories from nonfamily members, such as friends, teachers, classmates, mentors, and others, who have had a significant impact on life stories. Storied is the first family history platform built with next-generation “graph” architecture that allows for an unlimited number of connection types between people, places, and things. The platform also allows users to leverage user-generated stories to break past previously insurmountable barriers in their research. Storied is now live in a beta version and allows users to create a family tree from scratch or upload one that was previously built. Users can add additional nonfamily members and find connections through Storied’s record archives as well as through the stories recorded by other groups and individuals on the platform.

In conclusion, Storied is an innovative new family history platform that offers more than your typical genealogy website. With the ability to build a family tree, search historical records and newspapers, and create and share stories, Storied provides a comprehensive way to capture and preserve your family’s history. Its unique feature of allowing users to document relationships beyond the typical family dynamic, including friends, colleagues, and teammates, sets it apart from other family history sites. Storied also offers two subscription plans to cater to different needs and budgets. Overall, Storied is an exciting new addition to the world of family history and is worth checking out for anyone interested in preserving their family’s stories for future generations.
