I guess it depends on what you mean by "make history"! "Famous" is one thing. Very few of us are truly related to famous people. But each person led a life that is worthy of recording.
Did she marry? If not, why not? That's a story.
If she did, what was her married life like? Wealthy? Poor? That's a story?
Same with children, etc.
Once you have a collection of documents related to her you can use the facts and the historical context to craft a true story of her life.
