We enable millions to discover their past and empower their future

Guided by our core values of innovation, compassion, and diversity, MyHeritage offers users a meaningful discovery experience that unites their past, present, and future using sophisticated matching technologies, billions of international historical records, and at-home DNA tests.

Users start by adding a few names and our automatic matching technologies help them grow their family trees.

Users can explore their family history in our global database of 12.5 billion historical records, with billions more added each year.

Users can discover their ethnic origins and receive matches to relatives with a simple cheek swab DNA test.

Free MyHeritage Course

Iím so excited to tell you that MyHeritage has just launched our first-ever full-length online course: Introduction to Genealogy, hosted by yours truly.

The course is a natural extension of what weíve been building with the MyHeritage Knowledge Base: a free, comprehensive educational resource on genealogy. The course contains detailed lessons from a top-notch panel of experts providing a strong foundation in family history research. Itís intended for people who are new to genealogy or who started in the past and are looking to pick it up again.

The Introduction to Genealogy course is hosted on the Knowledge Base, and like everything else there, itís free to all. Simply register to gain access to all the course materials and to track your progress as you move through the course.

The course focuses on 3 main areas:

Family trees
Historical records and research
DNA testing for genealogy

Each section is divided into chapters and lessons that cover a wide range of topics, tools, and strategies for conducting family history research. The 40 lessons sometimes include short assignments and additional materials to help you practice and absorb what youíve learned. Youíll also find quizzes to test your knowledge at various points along the way. Youíll be able to move at your own pace and track your progress as you go.

I invite you to check it out and share it far and wide. Itís the perfect way to introduce all the budding genealogists you know to the world of family history! You can read our blog post announcement here, and feel free to use the above graphic.

Best regards,

Daniel Horowitz

MyHeritage's Photo Tools

Note that in January 2022 they have made some excellent improvements in the colour processing, now much brighter and more natural.

I used the picture tools to enhance some of my own pictures.  See my bio page at:
