Share memories

Our memories, photos, family stories, and discoveries all tell a story of our past and the people in it.


Every life has a story to tell.

Facts and dates are important, but it's what we share that fills in the blanks with collaborative bios.

Look for the "+ Add" or the pencil () to edit the biography & family tree.

Leave a comment if you have a particular question and to show that they are remembered.

Bios FAQ

What are collaborative bios?

Today we all have online profiles, but those before us never had an opportunity to share their lives online.

At AncientFaces we build biographies of our family & friends so that their legacies are remembered forever.

Biographies are collaborate online profiles of our friends, family members and people from our past. By working together we are able to create a more accurate portrait of our loved ones.

Who should have a bio?

We believe that Everyone Deserves to be Remembered. Our Mission is to celebrate the lives of those before us so that they are always remembered.

What information should I add?

The basic details like full name, birth and death information, important dates, locations lived, relationships, professions and etc. are all important.

However, all complete biographies includes photos, summaries of special events in their lives, memories, and family stories.
