Abraham Lincoln is one of the most prominent figures in the history of the United States, and one of the most influential presidents of all time. To mark his birthday on February 12, and President’s Day on February 15, MyHeritage has released a new ad that uses state-of-the-art technology, so you can now see Lincoln like never before, as he explores his family history on MyHeritage 🙂

The experience of discovering your family history and exploring the lives of your ancestors on MyHeritage can often feel like you’re having a conversation with previous generations. Your ancestors’ stories come to life as you uncover new details about them. It’s almost as if you can hear their voices as the stories unfold.

Seeing Abraham Lincoln speak to us is an example of the profound impact of exploring the past.

Peach worked together with D-ID.com, a company that specializes in facial reenactment technology. They animated a photo of Abraham Lincoln, directing the head’s movements based on authentic human gestures, then incorporated the movements of the voice actor’s mouth, and superimposed all of this onto a real-life actor and to create a lifelike depiction of Abraham Lincoln.
