As category leader, Ancestry had enviably high awareness. The problem: for most, exploring their ancestry was a project that could wait. We needed to inspire people to act now. Research revealed that understanding your origins can offer inspiration for today; instead of looking backward, the brand helps us look forward. By restaging a historical moment with modern-day descendants of all races and genders, we demonstrated how our past can inspire our future, reminding our divided nation that diversity is our strength. This sparked a cultural conversation, increased consideration and sales.
