Long summer days are the perfect time for family gatherings and a great opportunity to ask questions of relatives to discover more about your family heritage.
Here are some hints and tips for furthering your family history research this summer:

2. Plan a vacation to meet distant family members. Come prepared with questions about their branch of the family and use the MyHeritage Mobile App to fill in gaps in your family tree and to add photos while you're on-the-go.
