New: 815 million US Public Records added

We did it again! We've just added 815 million US Public Records of people living in the USA to MyHeritage SuperSearch. This massive compilation of records was assembled from telephone directories, property tax assessments, credit applications, voter registration lists and other records available to the public. It includes information about hundreds of millions of people from the USA spanning the last five decades, making it one of the most powerful collections on SuperSearch for finding information about living relatives.

These records are excellent for connecting with relatives you find through MyHeritage Smart Matches and Record Matches. Continue reading "New: 815 million US Public Records added" »

Millions of Geni profiles now available on SuperSearch

We're happy to announce that as of this week, you can search 138 million Geni profiles on MyHeritage's SuperSearch.

Soon after acquiring Geni in November 2012, MyHeritage provided Geni's users with Record Matches and Smart Matches powered by MyHeritage. We added this to enable Geni users to benefit from historical records - something that hadn't been available on Geni before - and discover new relatives and ancestors through matches between their tree and the 25 million trees on MyHeritage.

This week we completed reciprocating this benefit for MyHeritage users, and now they are able to search Geni profiles on MyHeritage, and receive automatic matches between their family trees and Geni. It took us some time to add this, because we implemented a robust, real-time "bridge" that constantly updates MyHeritage SuperSearch as changes are made in the tree on Geni. The updates stream to MyHeritage every second but SuperSearch is updated in bulk once a day with all the changes. This prevents information on MyHeritage that originates from Geni from ever becoming out of date.

Now that the Geni profiles are available on SuperSearch, MyHeritage users will start receiving matches with Geni trees. This is a great benefit for users of either service, as both will now be able to expand their trees, find new information, discover new cousins and learn more from each other.

New: Add family tree profiles from historical records

Today, we launched an exciting new feature that allows you to add new profiles to your family tree directly from a historical record.

Previously, you could view a historical record and extract information from that record into multiple profiles in your family tree. Now you can go one step further, and add new profiles to your family tree from that very record!

For example, if you find a census record for your great-grandmother and you discover she had a sister previously unknown to you, you can now add the sister to your tree directly from the record, and extract the information about her from the record at the same time.
