Mike has been working at MyHeritage since 2013 and is responsible for defining our strategy for growing our collection of 8.27 billion historical records, and supervising all operations of content acquisition. Mike is an expert on our SuperSearch™ collections and is very passionate about genealogy.

Earlier this month, we added Ellis Island and other New York Passenger Lists to SuperSearch™ with unique content that was never searchable before. During the webinar, Mike will speak about the millions of additional names and relationships listed in the New York passenger arrival records that until now, have never been indexed. These records provide information about the arriving immigrant’s nearest friend or relative in his home country, as well as information about a friend or relative in the USA.

These additional names and relationships are now available in a searchable index for the first time and can help genealogists find elusive passenger arrival records and solve difficult genealogical problems. This webinar will provide a brief history of passenger arrival records collected at the Port of New York and focus on using the newly updated and expanded index on MyHeritage to improve findability in these important immigration records.

Search the Ellis Island and Other New York Passenger Lists, 1820–1957 now.

If you want to learn more about genealogy research and New York Passenger lists, we hope you join him today at 2 pm EST for his interesting webinar.
