Did you know that MyHeritage offers an advanced search? It provides more specific, more relevant results, and makes searches quicker and more efficient.
Here's how to find it:
Go to the Genealogy tab -> Research -> New Research -> Advanced Search, and see this box:
With the Advanced Search option, users can add birth and death dates and also specify the country in which ancestors were born or died. This filters the results, making the retrieved data more relevant, and making searches quicker and more efficient.
Always store and annotate your searches, so they are available for future reference and you can avoid multiple, duplicate searches on the same names. This feature is available in Advanced Search. Another useful feature is that searches can be scheduled automatically for new information as databases are added, saving more time. Even better, MyHeritage members can link from Family Tree Builder directly to MyHeritage Search.
Researchers can perform a name search using an exact spelling match, Soundex spelling or our unique Megadex spelling variations. Megadex lets you choose commonly used surname spelling variations, reducing the time needed to research different spellings. Searching (below) for Talalay provides a listing of common variants. Our name seems to be relatively simple, phonetic but notice how many variations exist. My research has turned up some 30 spellings of relatives in records of all types. This example shows what may be discovered:
Megadex is free, but viewers must register to use it. Once registered, viewers can utilize all the features of this powerful tool, including store and annotate and automatic searching.
MyHeritage believes that these features will make it even easier to research your family history and add to your family tree.
We are always interested in learning what you think and how your experience with these features has helped you achieve success.
I'm looking forward to reading your comments.
