Abstract
Stories are important tools for recounting and sharing the past. To tell a story one has to put together diverse information about people, places, time periods, and things. We detail here how a machine, through the power of Semantic Web, can compile scattered and diverse materials and information to construct stories. Through the example of the WeChangEd research project on women editors of periodicals in Europe from 1710 – 1920 we detail how to move from archive, to a structured data model and relational database, to a Linked Open Data model and make this information available on Wikidata, to the use of the Stories Services API to generate multimedia stories related to people, organizations and periodicals. This resulted in the WeChangEd Stories App, https://stories.wechanged.ugent.be/ .
