Get ready for 2013: MyHeritage family calendars

2013 is just around the corner so it's time to start thinking about organizing the year ahead. With so many family birthdays, anniversaries, events, holidays and personal activities to keep track of, anyone can appreciate a handy family calendar for the New Year, prepared in a few clicks!

Our beautiful calendars are really simple to make, because you've already done the hard part - entering the family birthdays, anniversaries and other events and adding photos to your MyHeritage family tree. All this will be automatically placed in the family calendar along with relatives' photos related to each event.

A collage of family photos will appear on the cover page for each month - but not just any photos! The calendar automatically selects photos of people who have a special event during that month. You can also customize the calendar, add or edit events, remove or replace photos, add national holidays and religious holidays and much more.

The calendars are the result of our partnership with specialist companies Fuga Technologies and Total Graphics. The calendars are extremely affordable, costing less than $20 each. They make a great gift for your family for the upcoming holidays and if you order multiple copies you will not pay more for shipping, which is very affordable at approx. $2 only. Express shipping is available for those who need their calendars in a rush.

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."

MyHeritage: Scheduled maintenance this weekend

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.
