MyHeritage Genealogy Expert World Tour

MyHeritage Genealogy Expert World Tour

The genealogy conference season is about to start and our genealogy expert Daniel Horowitz already has his suitcase packed. Each year, Daniel tours the genealogy world, attending the largest genealogy conferences and lecturing to many local societies avid to learn about MyHeritage and other genealogy subjects around the world.

This year, he introduces a new set of lectures covering MyHeritageDNA products and new features. The previous ones, of course, are still available along with his personal and general genealogy talks, such as his maternal line research, cemetery research and roots travel, or more specific ones related to Jewish genealogy and Israel.

Listed below is Daniel’s schedule for the next six months. Regardless of whether you are a new MyHeritage user or an experienced genealogist, if you are near any of the places mentioned – and you would like to share genealogy knowledge – feel free to attend any of the lectures and say hello to our genealogy traveler.
