With FamilySearch’s updated ancestor discovery pages, you can do everything from viewing photos and timelines of your ancestors’ lives to exploring their heritage with fun interactive online activities. 

Activities--Try on the traditional clothing your ancestors wore, compare your face to theirs, and view on a map where your ancestors lived.
