MyHeritage RootsTech recap

I know you’ve received a flurry of emails from MyHeritage over the past week and I promise this is the last in the series 😉 I just want to make sure that all these important announcements don’t get lost in the shuffle, so I’m providing a quick recap:

  • LiveStory: At our RootsTech keynote, we announced the release of LiveStory: an incredible new feature that makes your family photos speak and creates amazing video biographies of your ancestors! Click here to read the blog post announcement, here to try it out, and here to see an awesome video about it, which we invite you to share.
  • Blast From My Past podcast: On March 2, we launched our first-ever podcast, featuring stories of people whose lives were changed by what they discovered through MyHeritage. Click here to read more about it and here to follow and listen to the podcast.
  • Family Tree Timeline: Another big feature we launched in time for RootsTech is Family Tree Timeline, a new view of your family tree that allows you to explore how your family history unfolded over time. Click here to learn more.
  • 1950 U.S. Census hub: On March 3, we launched a brand-new content hub gearing up to the release of the 1950 U.S. Census next month. It’s a fantastic resource for educating people on census records and what they can teach you about your family history. We would greatly appreciate it if you could include it in any list of resources you may be compiling! Click here to check it out.
  • Filae family tree profiles: At the end of February, we added 269 million family tree profile records from Filae to MyHeritage. You can read more about it here.

I think that should cover it! I look forward to hearing what you think, and please help us let the world know about these fantastic additions to the world of genealogy.
