MyHeritage Online Events in May–June

MyHeritage Online Events in May–June


MyHeritage has been offering dozens of free online webinars and Facebook Live sessions in the past couple months. The goal of these sessions is to provide users with the opportunity to learn from top experts and make progress with their research while at home.

Our users have responded with great enthusiasm. Thousands of people from all over the world have participated in ur FB Live sessions and webinars — from Mexico to Denmark to Canada to Poland. They’ve told us how much they look forward to the MyHeritage sessions especially while it’s “cold and unfriendly” outside, and have commented on how excellent the lecturers are and how valuable they’ve found the information in the sessions.

If you missed our previous sessions, no worries — you can find all recorded FB Live sessions in the Videos section of our Facebook page, and many of the webinars are available for free viewing on the MyHeritage Knowledge Base.

Infection rates may have slowed in some places in the world, but we have no intention of doing the same! This month we’re excited to bring you even more informative, fun, and intriguing sessions to help you move forward in your genealogy journey.

Facebook Live Sessions

Head over to the MyHeritage Facebook page to get in on the action! We’ve been hosting sessions from a variety of speakers on family history and DNA topics. Facebook Live sessions require no advance registration — just visit our page when the event is scheduled to start. You’ll spot the live video at the top of the feed. During the session, feel free to leave your questions in the comments so the speaker can respond to them live.

    I would like to know how to segregate my families in to different trees. Once beyond my grand parents the branches get widespread. Set up my family as my 4 last name origins and that of my parents.

    Everything I see is during normal business hours. So there is nothing for people who are working?

    I’m blown away by all the webinars, tools, and informative sessions that you provide. As soon as I can devote more time to genealogy (still working full time—anxiously nearing retirement), I think I’ll finally be able to knock down my brick wall! Many thanks!
