Following the success of our previous webinar, "An Introduction to Record Matching," we're delighted to invite you to register for our next online event: "Record Matching with special guest James Tanner".
Join MyHeritage chief genealogist Daniel Horowitz and expert genealogist James Tanner, author of the Genealogy's Star blog, who will discuss examples and surprises from James' own family tree.
The webinar takes place on Tuesday, Oct 16, 2012, at 2pm MDT (which corresponds to 4pm Eastern US time or 9pm in the UK).
Record Matching is a brand new technology from MyHeritage, designed to automatically find and match historical records (from our growing collection of 4+ billion records) to the 23 million family trees on MyHeritage...but with a twist!
It's the first and only technology to automatically search newspaper articles, books and other free-text documents. Record matching saves you time by bringing your family’s historical documents directly to you. Visit your family site now to check your Record Matches. You can learn more about Record Matching on the blog post.

I have finally found time to write about my recent trip, which featured two intensive genealogy-focused weeks. I returned to a huge backlog of emails and other tasks and then had to firm up the details of my next trip.
First, I want to thank all the wonderful people who hosted me during this trip.
It kicked off in Grand Junction, Colorado, where Dale Seibert, of the local LDS Family History Center, invited me to the Family History Fair. This small town is simply beautiful, everyone is friendly and doors are open all the time. I gave four lectures on “Face Recognition” and “Family Tree Builder software”.
People were so kind - as they have been in every other place I have visited. I think the most amazing thing for them was to have someone from so far away visit. Believe me, I did it with pleasure.
