We’re happy to announce a new version of the MyHeritage mobile app with great improvements for managing photos.
The MyHeritage mobile app is an easy way to build and edit your family tree on-the-go, and to research historical records, wherever you are.
With the new and improved version of the mobile app, it is now easier than ever to manage your family site photos directly from your mobile device. Now you can see all those photos, as well as tagged photos for any individual in your tree.
This blog post covers the new updates to the MyHeritage mobile app. To read about the app’s many existing features, please see the following blog posts from past releases.
There are two major additions to the new version:
1- The new Family Photos section on the home screen replaces the previous Photo Sharing section. Tap it to view all albums from your family site, and all photos in any album.
This year was the 45th Southern California Genealogical Society's Jamboree, a great gathering of attendees and presenters covering the entire spectrum of genealogical pursuits, from DNA to specific countries.

Today we are pleased to announce that MyHeritage has reached an exciting milestone: we've surpassed 5 billion historical records!
It has taken only two years for MyHeritage to build this treasure trove of historical information demonstrating that MyHeritage is one of the fastest-growing and most internationally diverse family history companies in the world.
We recently hosted an online webinar on how to discover family history through gravestones. We were joined by two of our experts - US genealogy advisor Schelly Talalay Dardashti and chief genealogist Daniel Horowitz.
Schelly talked about the information that can be revealed about family via gravestones. Daniel discussed our recent partnership with BillionGraves and how to get involved in preserving cemeteries for future generations.

When author Yvette Corporon wrote her recently released novel, When the Cypress Whispers, she delved deep into her family history. She uncovered the tale of her grandparents, who lived on a small Greek island -- and how they, along with their neighbors, hid a Jewish family on the island during the Second World War.
MyHeritage helped Yvette connect with people who know the family that was hidden and she hopes to reunite with them soon.
Yesterday, Yvette was on Fox News Channel's weekday morning show, Fox and Friends, to discuss her new book.
Watch Yvette talk about using MyHeritage for her family research:
