Expert reviews of Record Matching

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. 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 — Record Matches.”

“In my opinion, this is a significant step forward for the online genealogical community.”

Pat Richley-Erickson
, Dear Myrtle:

“I discovered items about ancestors using MyHeritage Record Matches not previously known to me through personal microfilm, online newspaper and Member Tree research.”

There have been many other noteworthy mentions of Record Matching including those by GigaOm, Genealogy Beginner and Start-up Nation.

We’ve also received many positive notes from our users and requests for various improvements. We’re glad Record Matching is so useful to our users and we’ll keep improving it going forward. Please keep your feedback coming and we invite you to share your discoveries in the comments section below.

    I am doing only my family and my husband’s, and I really appreciate what you have done with record matching. I am involved with, and tramping through cemeteries is very rewarding. So their part of your Record Matching is especially good.

    Very useful for US genealogists and those with relatives in the US. A filter to show only European, and in my case, Irish, records would be a benefit.

    Your Record matching feature is great and I believe unique to My Heritage. I have had over 1000 matches and all are confirmed so far as being correct…MyHeritage has it all over most others in providing access to all this data.

    Thank you

    . Am a novice with computer – have had one for 4 months. After many disasters I was reluctant to sign up with any genealogy site – to hard to navigate! Then I came accross My Heritage! Much easier to understand what I had to do. Sometimes it is quite intimidating when you haven’t the skills. Found important information on my family. Thanks My Heritage.
