Improved, Expanded: MyHeritage Research

MyHeritage Research - our genealogy search engine - has been improved and expanded.

MyHeritage Research

Currently, it includes 1,526 genealogically relevant resource databases - representing more than 12 billion names - to provide usable information to family history researchers.

Even better, MyHeritage members can access the search engine directly from Family Tree Builder.

The latest edition includes 156 new sources. Among them:

  • Spock people finder

  • Facebook
  • Michigan Census
  • German Emigrants Database
  • BMD Registers UK
  • USA Gov search
  • Western Michigan Newspapers
  • Digg
  • Palatines to America
  • US Social Security Death Index
  • Prague Police Headquarters Conscriptions (1850-1914)
  • Consolidated Index of Sephardic Surnames
  • Arizona Birth and Death Certificates
  • European Patent Office
  • Some sites are free, some require subscriptions. For a paid site search, MyHeritage viewers will see the details that the subscription site provides on its free search. To see more than that, however, a subscription to that site is required. In the US, many public libraries offer free access to some major subscription-only databases.

    Using MyHeritage Research accesses only genealogically relevant resources which helps researchers find those websites and databases most relevant to their unique family histories.

    Even better, MyHeritage members can access the search engine directly from Family Tree Builder.

    We are always interested in how members have used new or expanded features. What have you found in the latest database that has helped you add leaves to your tree?

    I look forward to reading your comments.
