We’re delighted to announce that you can now search millions of digitized Nordic records from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland from as early as the 1600s so you can discover your Nordic roots and learn more about how your ancestors lived.
The collections contain over 90 million names and include birth, death, marriage and baptism records, as well as census and many more records. This is in addition to 70 million profiles in 730,000 family trees already created by MyHeritage users with ancestors in this region. This is a treasure trove of records, not only for people living today in these countries but for all whose families originated in the region.

Today we've extended the popular record extraction feature that lets you extract information from a historical record directly to a relevant family tree profile, to now extract to multiple profiles. Thus, when you've found a record with information on several relatives, you can easily extract the information into all relevant family tree profiles.
Many people enjoy telling and listening to stories to learn about their family history. Interviewing a relative is a great way to start documenting their knowledge and add details to your family tree.
Last week, Laurence Harris, MyHeritage’s Head of Genealogy UK presented a webinar on how to interview family relatives.

We’re delighted to announce that MyHeritage has entered into a strategic partnership with leading genealogy organization FamilySearch, which will bring billions of global historical records and family tree profiles spanning hundreds of years to MyHeritage.
This is a "historical moment" in the family history industry and very exciting news for family history enthusiasts worldwide.
Historical records are the backbone of family history research and are vital for making new family connections and uncovering new information about ancestors. Family tree profiles are helpful for finding relatives and tapping into the collective knowledge of millions of other users.
In the next few months, we’ll add more than 2 billion records from FamilySearch’s global historic record collections and profiles from its online family tree to SuperSearch, MyHeritage’s search engine for historical records.
Memories, photos and documents provide a wealth of invaluable family history information. Interviewing family members is a great way to learn about earlier generations and discover more about your family heritage.
Join Laurence Harris, MyHeritage’s Head of Genealogy in the UK, who will give tips on interviewing your relatives to help with your family history research.

MyHeritage members come to us in various ways. Maria Keep, 63, born in the Netherlands and now living in Australia, tried a free MyHeritage CD that came in a magazine.
Maria was born in Renkum, Netherlands. She, her husband and adult daughter and son live in Forster NSW Australia. She is a full-time caregiver for her husband who is vision impaired and suffers from total memory and short term memory loss.
Maria has been collecting family history for some four decades.
I am from a very big family and have always been interested in family history and had been collecting little bits of information on bits of paper and putting them in a book with the intention of putting it all together one day into a proper family tree record. I started collecting this information about 40 years ago.
We are delighted to announce enhanced support for Android tablets using the MyHeritage mobile app.
MyHeritage’s mobile app v2.2 is a great way to build or edit your family tree on the go. With this new update, we've enhanced the user experience and provided an uplifted design and full technical support for all Android tablet users.
