At home educational resources for families and teachers: With parents educating their kids at home and teachers looking for creative ways to administer assignments, new virtual ways of learning are on the rise.

Helping to ease the isolation from social distancing with new connections: Ancestry has collaborated with the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration to offer temporary free access to millions of historical records and images from the federal government.

Collaborating to address the COVID-19 global pandemic: Finding new ways to use science to advance our understanding of ourselves and our health is core to who we are. Genomics has the power to unlock insights into different traits, diseases and certain health conditions, so Ancestry’s team of scientists is working to see how they can best leverage Ancestry’s expertise, network and connectivity to advance efforts to combat COVID-19. Ancestry will share more with you, including how you can help, as these efforts evolve.

This is just the start and Ancestry will continue to look for ways to help their members and communities across the world navigate through this challenging time. In this time of social distancing, we all have the opportunity to forge closer bonds with family while empowering each other to keep in contact with those who are most vulnerable and practice kindness toward everyone.
