About Xistance

The Story of You

If a close friend was writing your biography, what would they include? Would they be able to capture who you are and how you got to where you are now? Each one of us travels a unique journey towards becoming the person we are today. Our interactions with family and friends, our accomplishments and struggles, shape who we are.  But how can we better capture and understand the people and experiences that make us who we are? Xistance can help.

Tell your story. Help others tell theirs.

Xistance is a private, user-controlled autobiographical site built to help people understand how both the past and present define who they are. With easy-to-use maps, family trees, timelines and organizational bins, you can quickly catalog present and past information about you, your heritage and the things that are really important.  Capture oral histories from your grandparents.  Record the time you won the spelling bee, scored the winning touchdown and got that big promotion at work. Mark your children’s achievements. And, though Xistance makes it easy to share your site—or parts of your site—with anyone you like, you won’t find newsfeeds, ads, “likes” or random videos or rants that other people tag you in. Other people can share stories, information or commentary about you, but you decide whether to accept it to your site.

Xistance is for you. To reach out to those important to you. To craft the history of your life and highlight where you are now. To determine how you want to be remembered. To define your legacy.

The Story of Others

Xistance is also about more than you. You have parents, grandparents, other relatives and loved ones you have lost. You can give them a site.  You can capture what you know, what you want to say, and help them define their legacy before memories fade.
