Great news concerning a milestone for Our Family Storybook (OFS), in more ways than one. Our first template is completed. With the development of this template we have established a solid base to build future designs. This first completed template, the Milestone Theme, can be used to build a website that showcases an individual or event in your family history. This first fully functional, editable template is currently free to members. The completion of this first template also heralds in the ability through the Projects Page to upload your GEDCOM file, personal images and documents to be used in your website designs.

The Milestone Theme options:

  1. Select from a variety of colored themes and fonts.
  2. Upload and maintain your own image library.
  3. Choose from the OFS library of images.
  4. Compose a detailed history.
  5. Build an image gallery from your personal library.
  6. Allow your guests to post comments.
  7. Provides a Contact Form.
  8. Instant preview and edibility features.
  9. Option to set privacy features.

Create as many individual sites as you like. This also allows family member access and a way of communicating with you through the site. But this is only the beginning. To keep the momentum going, the OFS design team is moving forward and working on three more comprehensive template designs that we are projecting to be completed in the next several months. Build your own Milestone, let others know about it and use the OFS online Forums to give us feedback and make suggestions on how you would like to see OFS develop.

We are working for you.
