The event brings together genealogy and technology. It's a great place to share and learn from top genealogists and technologists about technology tools to help with your family history research.
MyHeritage Founder and CEO Gilad Japhet will give the keynote speech at 8.30am on Saturday, March 23, in Hall 1. He will unveil MyHeritage breaking news, so don’t miss out!
Gilad will speak alongside David Pogue, personal technology weekly columnist for The New York Times and a monthly columnist for Scientific American.
The MyHeritage team returned from three intensive days at the Who Do You Think You Are Live 2013 show in London’s Olympia. We enjoyed greeting so many visitors at our booth.
Our team included Chief Genealogist Daniel Horowitz, Head of Genealogy (UK) Laurence Harris, Chief Content Officer Russ Wilding, Netherlands Community Manager Denie Kasan, Scandinavian Community Manager Sara Silander, German Community Manager Karen Brandel Hägele and Marketing Manager Aaron Godfrey.
Both old friends and new shared fascinating stories of their ancestors and their own family history research experiences.
The MyHeritage team are coming to the end of an exciting first day at the 2013 Who Do You Think You Are Live! at London’s Olympia.

Come and join MyHeritage at “Who Do You Think You Are? Live,” at London's Olympia, booth 842, from February 22-24.
We'll soon be sharing some of the exciting activities we've planned for the event. Now, however, we have free tickets for five lucky readers to attend the family history fair.
All you have to do is answer this question:
What’s the name of MyHeritage’s family history search engine, that lets you browse billions of historical documents and millions of newspaper articles?
For your chance to win, e-mail your answer - by Friday, February 8 - to email@example.com. Winners will be chosen at random and notified by email.
Before the holidays we offered you the chance to win a digital camera by sharing with us your favorite holiday memory or photo.
We received many beautiful photos and touching stories and it's been really difficult choosing a winner.
We decided to divide the competition into two categories - pictures and stories - and choose a winner from each.
Many of our most special memories come from spending time with our families over the holidays.
We remember the dinners, gifts, songs and jokes we shared. Wonderful testimonials to these unique moments are the photos we will treasure for ever.

This wonderful family holiday is celebrated by Americans around the world, no matter where they live. It's the time for families to get together and share a delicious feast. The day often includes watching football on TV and planning for “Black Friday” shopping deals!
It is a genuine family holiday and many of us have touching or hilarious stories about Thanksgivings past.
MyHeritage invites you to share your funny stories for the chance to win a one-year PremiumPlus membership. Simply comment on this post or post comments on our Facebook wall or, if you can fit it into 140 characters, tweet them @myheritage. The winning story will be announced on Friday.
Since I can’t participate in the competition as I'm part of the MyHeritage team, here’s my hilarious holiday story.
Thanks to all of you who entered the MyHeritage Halloween Family Photo competition.
We received some great photos but, alas, only one can win the one-year data subscription. After our panel of judges reviewed each photo, we're delighted to announce that Debby Carter has won our prize!
Here's the winning photo:
Send your most creative and original Halloween family photos and we'll choose three winners to receive a one-year MyHeritage annual data subscription, providing full access to all family history records in our database.

This is a valuable talent in the family history field, as some of us can immediately recognize people in photographs or remember the names of relatives at reunions or large family weddings.
A new study - and online test - developed by researchers at Washington University (St. Louis, Missouri) will help you learn how good your memory is in relation to others. They are inviting the world to participate in the online experiment.
The 10-minute test can be taken from a computer, smartphone, iPad and other mobile device. It's part of a “crowd-sourcing” science trend, using the Internet to gather research data while allowing participants to learn something about themselves.
I just took it and my rough-estimate score result was 108, meaning that I correctly identified 86% of the name-face pairs.
