Ancestry launches new Labs site


We have just announced a new “Labs” area on Labs is a separate site where we can give you a sneak preview of new ideas and concepts for helping family history research (but that are not yet ready for prime time). Most importantly for us, it gives us a chance to hear feedback directly from our most passionate users.

Right now, Ancestry Labs will be linked only from relevant blog posts, but in the future, it’s possible we may introduce a permanent link from the site, and perhaps from

The projects we will place in this area may be in beta (like Ancestry Wiki) or they may be early prototypes. Some of these may make their way into the site and perhaps, others may not. Much depends on your feedback.

The new lab site is very much a work in progress but Ancestry is launching it with a Person View facility - for more details see the Ancestry blog at
