CHICAGO, Ill. (February 18, 2021) – Legacy.com and Ancestry today announced they have reached a definitive agreement for the sale of Ancestry subsidiary Adpay to Legacy.com.
Adpay is best known for its Memoriams™ platform, which enables funeral homes to conveniently publish obituaries in newspapers nationwide. Memoriams will complement Legacy.com’s industry-leading iPublish Media Solutions, which it acquired in late 2019.
“We are grateful for Ancestry’s stewardship of the Adpay business,” said Stopher Bartol, Legacy.com’s Founder and CEO. “And we are thrilled to partner with the Adpay team to build on our shared mission of helping funeral homes and consumers publish obituaries in local newspapers everywhere, in every format.”
