As with last year, we anticipate hundreds of genealogy enthusiasts and MyHeritage users from around the world to join us and attend.

Conference details

MyHeritage LIVE 2019 will take place on September 6-8 2019 at the Hilton Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The hotel is located south of central Amsterdam, near the museum district, and we have arranged a special rate for guests who choose to stay at the hotel.

In addition to a plenary session from MyHeritage Founder and CEO, Gilad Japhet, there will be genealogy and DNA lecture tracks, as well as hands-on workshops to walk attendees through MyHeritage tools and features step-by-step.

Conference tickets include access to lectures, workshops, coffee breaks, lunches on Saturday and Sunday, a Friday night drink reception, and the celebratory MyHeritage party on Saturday night, all of which you don’t want to miss!

Guest speakers

We’ve lined up an excellent array of speakers and we’ll announce the full list soon once we complete receiving all confirmations.

Past events

MyHeritage LIVE 2018 in Oslo, Norway was a remarkable event, enjoyed by all. There were three different tracks: DNA, genealogy, and hands-on workshops. Riveting talks by both guest speakers and MyHeritage staff captivated full audiences. Support team members were on hand throughout the conference to provide comprehensive support.

    Hello I would love to attend but I’m still waiting on the results of my DNA heritage I gave the sample back in November it’s now February and I don’t have it yet. It wouldn’t make sense to me to attend not having the results of my DNA test. I hope I get the results soon enough where I can attend this wonderful occasion.

    Do guests arrive on 6 Sept and leave on 8? Or do they arrive the day before (5th) and leave the day after (9th)? In other words, for how many nights does one need to book the hotel?

    • Esther


      February 17, 2019

      Hi Shabnam,

      It would be a two-night hotel visit – arriving on September 6th, and departing on the 8th.

    My dna has come back as 75% Scandinavian so would love be at the conference

    The reason I would be unbelievably thankful, and absolutely ecstatic with pure joy to be chosen to win this trip is because not only is a large portion of my heritage rooted in the Netherlands! But myheritage and working on my family’s geaneolgy brought my father and I together. We hadn’t spoken to eachother much for years. Then one day I logged into my email, and seen I had all of these messages saying updates had been made to people on my tree… at first I was a little Annoyed thinking.. “who the heck does this person think they are! why do they think they can just tinker with all my hard work tracing my ancestors back so many generations!” Well, To my surprise it was my father! (Haa..haa!!) And that is how we reconnected. We found our common ground, we finally found something that we both really enjoy doing, and sare a passion for. The most precious gift of all that came from this, is that I found my father. It might not be in a way others have achieved through this site. Finding their heritage and relatives through a DNA test which previously would have been unattainable for them. But I promise you that the gift of finding my father through finding my heritage is just as much of a blessing as it is for those finding a family they never had the chance to know. So when you ask to know why I would want to go to myheritage live it’s a simple answer for me. You gave me back my father after we drifted apart and lost each other for many years, and now we talk every day! I’m thankful and feel so blessed to have him back in my life. I would love to be chosen to go to myheritage live In Amsterdam with my father. Right now we live 14 hours apart and I haven’t gotten to see to see him or spend time with him in quite awhile. Being chosen would be a dream come true.

    We would love to have the opportunity to delve into a better understanding of how My Heritage can help us and others to “crack” the genealogy code and connect with their ancestry.

    I have pretty much done most of my genealogical research alone and very haphazardly. Going to an event with genealogical enthusiasts would be a real inspiration. I hope I win!

    I would love to go to this conference, so I can find ways to track down my grandmother’s heritage, which I haven’t been able to for a number of years!
