MyHeritage: Site navigation improvements

When you next login to MyHeritage, you'll notice some changes made to improve navigation on our family sites. The changes are designed to help you find needed tools and features faster and easier.

New drop-down menus: All family site pages are now available in a drop-down menu - click fewer times to get to where you want to go. Want to create a family tree chart? Scroll over the Family tree tab and immediately see the Charts & Books page.

Improvements in the navigation menus

Switch between trees: Have more than one family tree on your site? Use the handy drop-down menu, now in the upper left corner, to toggle between trees.

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."

This weekend (Friday, July 6 - Monday, July 9), MyHeritage will be performing some scheduled site maintenance and making a number of improvements.

The MyHeritage sites and Family Tree Builder will be working normally, but you may experience a few difficulties such as specific features running slowly, or temporarily not working.

We'll be working hard to complete the maintenance quickly and return to normal service as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience.
