First social interactive storytelling with Facebook-Meograph integration

SAN FRANCISCO - Meograph ( today announces the release of the first social interactive storytelling, bringing live Facebook profiles directly into multimedia content. Now Facebook friend tagging is deeply integrated into Meograph’s creation and playback experience. In addition to creating stories out of video, audio, photos, text, and links, Meographers can add visual, clickable tags of Facebook friends. No other multimedia creation platform offers this type of engaging, socially viral product.

Balaji Gopinath, Vice President of Emerging Technology at Turner Broadcasting System, said, "Media companies are storytellers, and we are continually exploring new ways for consumers to engage with our content. Meograph’s platform allows viewers to express themselves alongside TV programming, and its social integration provides a forum to share their thoughts, experience and creativity with others. We’re exploring how we might utilize Meograph to enhance personalized engagement with our storytelling."

With this capability, organizations and their storytellers are able to incorporate live visual links to social profiles embedded right within their stories. The tagged friend is notified and gets a Facebook wall post that links to the story, an image from the content, and a list of the other people tagged. Letting people know they are part of a story being told massively increases virality of the content. This is timely as the age-old art of true, lasting storytelling adapts to the digital, social era.

Soon following this rollout will be the ability to tag Facebook Pages, giving brands and celebrities a way to become part of the stories and driving traffic to their pages.

“Meograph was already somewhat interactive with clickable links to any URL embedded into the content. Publishers really like the links: they drive traffic and allow audiences to dive deeper into the stories. Facebook profile tagging is the next step,” said Meograph CEO Misha Leybovich. “We’re currently building other interactive media features in as well - pretty exciting to be developing this new interactive storytelling medium.”


Meograph is the easiest way to create interactive multimedia stories. Makes turning moments into lasting stories both easy enough for anyone to use as well as compelling output to watch. Since launch in late summer 2012, Meograph has been used by dozens of major media organizations, hundreds of companies, and thousands of schools around the world. The company is currently participating in both Turner Media Camp and Plug and Play Startup Camp.

Their Roots Are Showing! Three Bay Area Celebs Find Out Who They Are

OAKLAND, California—August 26, 2013—The California Genealogical Society, a library and research center, will present Their Roots Are Showing, an evening of surprise and discovery for three Bay Area celebrities on October 26, 2013, at 8:00 p.m. at the Del Valle Theater in Walnut Creek. Billy Beane, Vice President & General Manager of the Oakland Athletics; Natalie Coughlin, winner of 12 Olympic medals and the most decorated female medalist of all time; and Tim “Herb” Alexander, drummer for Grammy-nominated rock band Primus, will journey up their family trees before a live local audience.

"I am looking forward to an evening of discovery” says Billy Beane. “Like many Americans, I know little about my family history beyond my grandparents. I am very excited and look forward to this exciting event." 

The upcoming fall debut of the new PBS series Genealogy Roadshow, and the recent resurrection Who Do You Think You Are on TLC demonstrate that people find family histories fascinating, even when their own families are not the subject. Their Roots Are Showing is modeled on the popular reality shows where celebrity guests become emotionally caught up in the tales of love and loss, success and despair that formed the lives of their ancestors. 

Research experts at the California Genealogical Society have been combing through historical documents, photographs, and family information to trace the ancestry of the celebrities. For anyone who has wondered about their own ancestors, members of the California Genealogical Society will be on hand to answer questions. A Silent Auction of memorabilia and other items will be held in the theater lobby.

Tickets on now sale through the Lesher Center Box Office at Tickets are priced at $50.00.

The California Genealogical Society (CGS) founded in San Francisco in 1898, is one of the premier genealogical resources in Northern California. The society offers research services, online indexes and databases, and a research library in Oakland. Visit

Federation of Genealogical Societies Announces 2015 Conference

FGS and RootsTech Events To Be Held In Tandem
February 12-14, 2015 in Salt Lake City

22 August 2013 – Austin, TX. The Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) announced today that its 2015 National Conference will be held February 12-14, 2015, in Salt Lake City, Utah in conjunction with RootsTech, hosted by FamilySearch. RootsTech is held each February in Salt Lake City and helps thousands of attendees from around the world discover and share family connections, stories, and history.

With the Salt Palace Convention Center as the common venue, both FamilySearch and FGS are committed to producing a one-of-a-kind genealogy event addressing the educational needs of the family history, technology and genealogical society communities. As the logistics of this sizeable event are still being worked out, both FGS and FamilySearch will work together to share resources and provide cost benefits for all parties, including attendees and exhibitors. Attendees can expect to see familiar elements of previous FGS and RootsTech events including keynote presentations, a Society Showcase and Expo Hall.

Registration for both events will begin in August 2014, six months prior to the February 2015 dates. FGS will also hold a smaller national event for its members in late 2015, with details to be announced at a later date.

FGS President D. Joshua Taylor states, “FamilySearch has been a valued partner and sponsor for FGS during its past conferences. It only makes sense for both organizations to work together and produce what will be the most talked about genealogy events of 2015.” Taylor added that such an event brings the best of RootsTech and FGS conferences together under one roof and will offer genealogists and family historians a wide array of activities and educational opportunities.

WikiTree names Eowyn Langholf as GEDCOM Import Manager

21 August 2013: WikiTree, a community of genealogists committed to growing a 100% free worldwide family tree, is proud to announce that Eowyn Langholf has become WikiTree’s newest team member. Eowyn will take on the important role of tracking family trees that are uploaded as GEDCOMs.

GEDCOMs and the WikiTree Community

Thousands of genealogists upload their GEDCOM files to WikiTree every month. Many are submitted by guest members who just want to take advantage of the free GEDMatches feature which provides a handy, all-in-one report of search results for their ancestors. These uploads don't require oversight or assistance. However, many genealogists also want to automatically integrate their previous research into WikiTree by importing their GEDCOM file.

Unlike other genealogy websites where family trees are stored separately, on WikiTree all person profiles are collaborative, whether it be private with close family members, more public with distant cousins, or entirely open. Since every ancestor should only have one collaborative WikiTree profile, bulk profile creation through GEDCOM imports affects others who share the same ancestors. Personal consideration from an experienced wiki genealogist helps prevent an uploading member from making mistakes resulting in unintended consequences, and helps prevent WikiTree from becoming just another website that stores often-copied and poorly-sourced family trees.

Marked Increase in WikiTree Traffic

Eowyn’s role has become even more important because of a recent explosion of interest in WikiTree and collaborative genealogy. On August 7, 2013, the 10,000th genealogist signed the Wiki Genealogy Honor Code. Traffic to the WikiTree website has doubled from an average of 14,000 visits per day in June, to 28,000 per day this week.

Eowyn joins another recent addition to the WikiTree team, Paul Bech, who has been brought on to help resolve collaboration problems and privacy conflicts between members. Paul and Eowyn are integral players in the small WikiTree team which assists the 90,000-member WikiTree community.

About Eowyn Langholf

Eowyn is a New Mexico native who became interested in genealogy as a young girl while her mother was volunteering at a local family history library. She has worked as a professional genealogist for three years and enjoys genealogy blogging. Eowyn says that she “loves dead people but is also rather fond of the living” and if you would like to contact her, she can be reached at

About WikiTree

Growing since 2008, is a 100% free shared family tree website that balances privacy and collaboration. Community members privately collaborate with close family members on modern family history and publicly collaborate with other genealogists on deep ancestry. Since all the private and public profiles are connected on the same system this process is helping to grow a single, worldwide family tree that will eventually connect us all and thereby make it free and easy for anyone to discover their roots.

Diane C. Loosle Named Director of World Renowned Family History Library

August 21, 2013 - SALT LAKE CITY-FamilySearch today announced that Diane C. Loosle is the new director of its flagship Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. She will have the responsibility of leveraging the skills of the genealogical community more efficiently to meet the growing needs of a broader worldwide audience. Loosle is a 19-year veteran of FamilySearch, a professional genealogist, experienced research consultant, patron services specialist, and business leader. FamilySearch is a growing, worldwide nonprofit organization focused on providing quicker and more affordable access to genealogical records and related services.

Loosle says a top priority for her as director of the Library will be to study the role of the Family History Library and 4,700 satellite branches worldwide called, family history centers, and how to make them discovery centers for people of all ages, not just a research facility.

"Today, our research shows that the Family History Library and our centers are great places to do genealogical research. We need to figure out how to balance the needs of researchers while increasing appeal to those with other family history interests," said Loosle. "You can't attract a younger audience and offer the same experiences. We need to offer fun experiences and activities for the entire family that will increase love, appreciation, and understanding of their ancestors."

In 2013-14, Diane says she has some very specific goals as the new director of the Family History Library:

  • Become more family and youth-oriented through providing interactive, discovery experiences.
  • Enhance the services of the library through new collaborative research areas and better access to research staff.
  • Engage more patrons from the geographic community surrounding the library.

Don Anderson, FamilySearch Senior Vice President of Patron and Partner Services, said, "Diane is unique. She is an accredited genealogist that began her career helping patrons with their personal research in the Family History Library, and then she led out on new customer service initiatives. She also holds an MBA. So she understands business objectives, has great leadership experience, and has strong genealogical knowledge as a certified and accredited genealogist. Not only is she the first female director of the Library, she is one of the most qualified and capable to ever serve in this position."

During her career at FamilySearch, Diane started helping library patrons as a research consultant. She then led the creation and expansion of new patron services initiatives, the development of the FamilySearch Wiki, and free online training content at

The Family History Library serves 400,000 patrons per year. Sixty-one percent of those visitors stay for 4+ hours. Thirty-five percent stay for 8+ hours. Fifty-two percent are from outside of Utah. Millions more frequent the thousands of family history centers worldwide or do online research daily at
