MyHeritage users now receive automatic record search results when browsing profile pages of family tree individuals.
Everyone at MyHeritage was delighted to welcome WorldVitalRecords.com to our family. See our blog post about the acquisition here. This allows MyHeritage users to benefit from World Vital Records and its database containing billions of historical records.
We have started integrating the two sites and, as a start, we've made it easier and faster for our users to view and access historical records from within MyHeritage.com.
If a MyHeritage family tree individual profile has record matches, a green button will appear in the top right corner. Click it and you'll get a breakdown of the records found.
Another click will show you the relevant records on WorldVitalRecords.com, which may be census, birth, marriage or death records, or a myriad of other record types available, often including scans of the original documents.
For details on WorldVitalRecords.com subscriptions, see our previous blog post.
The new feature proved useful in my recent personal research. UK census records for my maternal great-great-grandfather were found instantly.
This is a major time-saving tool. If there’s one thing I’d like to get back from my genealogy research, it’s some of the hours spent doing speculative searches.
Why not take a look now? Click on someone you’ve yet to research. Who knows? You might just find something amazing.
Wishing you good luck in your research.
