Mediapost: Online genealogy service Ancestry is out with a new TV and digital campaign “Make Them Count” that celebrates the women’s suffrage movement.


The campaign has a unique twist: The company will let viewers connect in a personal way. It’s released thousands of new records and created a microsite where people can go to trace their own roots to the suffrage movement.


The campaign kicked off March 3 and throughout the year (which marks the centennial of the passing of the 19th Amendment). Ancestry is working with descendants of voting rights pioneers to tell their stories.
