Expert reviews of Record Matching

Our Record Matching technology, launched last week, has made a big splash in the genealogy industry.

Check out what some of the most influential genealogists on the Web have had to say about it:

Randy Seaver, Genea-Musings post 1, post 2:

"I like the MyHeritage Record Matching technology - it is a step forward in helping researchers with online family trees find online records that can add content to their database in the quest for finding our elusive ancestors."

"This system of Record Matches is excellent - especially when there are too many matches to consume in one sitting."

"No other provider of record searches provides a similar service for newspaper articles - this one is unique to date."

James Tanner
, Genealogy's Star post 1, post 2:

"On my very first tries, I was impressed and that isn't very common. I don't usually do software reviews because I like all of the programs and I don't want to appear to hold favorites, but this turns out to be different. MyHeritage.com has come up with a new service that should impact many genealogical researchers in a way that hasn't happened previously."

"This is really significant -- MyHeritage.com Record Matches."

"In my opinion, this is a significant step forward for the online genealogical community."

Pat Richley-Erickson
, Dear Myrtle:

"I discovered items about ancestors using MyHeritage Record Matches not previously known to me through personal microfilm, online newspaper and Ancestry.com Member Tree research."

There have been many other noteworthy mentions of Record Matching including those by GigaOm, Genealogy Beginner and Start-up Nation.

We've also received many positive notes from our users and requests for various improvements. We're glad Record Matching is so useful to our users and we'll keep improving it going forward. Please keep your feedback coming and we invite you to share your discoveries in the comments section below.
