The team at MyHeritage is now laying the groundwork for a fantastic new project: the First MyHeritage Web Awards.
We'll scour online genealogy communities across the world, and recognize the best websites and blogs with this award. It's the first time we've done this, so it's very exciting.
Our expert judging panel has set three criteria: 1) high quality content; 2) originality in topic choice, approach and design; and 3) frequently updated content. We're hoping to showcase the best genealogy sites in smaller countries, as well as those as far afield as Greece, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
Lumen S. Crest Contest Winner!
The entries are in and there were many wonderful submissions.

After careful review we would like to award Mr. Lumen Sivitz for his aquatic themed family crest. Lumen will be the recipient of a one year free premium membership to the MyHeritage.com site. Congratulations!
Who Do You Think You Are: Live is the most important UK genealogy event on the 2010 calendar. Coming this weekend – 26-28 February – the show will feature workshops from genealogy experts (like MyHeritage's genealogy manager Daniel Horowitz and UK genealogy advisor Laurence Harris), stalls and exhibitions from the country’s leading genealogy societies and organizations, and talks from celebrities including Kate Humble, Esther Rantzen, and Rory Bremner.
|Example Coat of Arms|
One of the great new features available from our recent merger is the ability for users to create their own Family Crest! Now you can showoff your heraldic display.
Click on your family tree and find the new tab that leads you to the build your family crest page. This fun new flash feature has 6 customizable elements of the coat of arms, each including loads of prefabricated design and hundreds of color options. Just as in a traditional Coat of Arms, here you can choose your shield, the helm or coronet, two supporters and a motto. As well, you can add charges for each field in the shield.
