Now, let's start with the first tip.

Did you know MyHeritage can send you reminders of the events in your MyHeritage calendar not only via Email but also by SMS directly to your mobile phone? And it is completely free! Setting them up is very easy, this is what you have to do:

If you're a MyHeritage registered user and you're using our Calendar to keep a record of birthdays or family anniversaries, go to the Settings tag in the MyHeritage home page.

You will be directed to the My preferences tab. There, go down to Event reminders, where you will be able to select "Send calendar alerts by" Email or SMS. For the latter, you just need to include your phone number (with country code!). You can send a test message, to see if everything work fine.

That's it, all done. Now there will be no excuse to miss any family event.
