MyHeritage AI Time Machine

Ever wondered what you might have looked like if you were born in your ancestors’ time? What about how you might look as a Viking? Or an ancient Greek warrior, or a 19th-century lord or lady? Now you can find out! I couldn’t be more excited to announce the release of AI Time Machine™, a groundbreaking and fun new feature that enables you to transform everyday personal photos into hyper-realistic images of yourself as a historical figure.

Imagine the most incredible costume you’ve ever seen. Every detail is perfect, and it looks and feels authentic. What you get with AI Time Machine™ is even better: stunning, seamless images of yourself or a loved one as an ancient Greek warrior, an Egyptian pharaoh, a Victorian lady, or an astronaut in space. There are dozens of iconic historical figures to choose from. You have to see it to believe it!

Check out this video to see how it works.

The feature is very easy to use: simply upload a few photos to get started. The feature will be free to use for a limited time only, so don’t wait — try it now!

Introducing AI Time Machine™

At MyHeritage, our commitment to developing new tools that help users further their family history research is stronger than ever. We also love creating fun features like AI Time Machine™ that increase public interest in history in general and family history in particular, and introduce new audiences to the fascinating world of genealogy.

Please share this exciting feature with friends and followers. Feel free to use the image above, or even better — share your favorite AI Time Machine™ images! You can even use them as highly original profile photos. I can’t wait to see you as your historical figure of choice 🙂

MyHeritage Photo Tagger

We’re delighted to introduce Photo Tagger, a free new feature on the MyHeritage mobile app that lets you easily tag multiple photos of the same individual in one go. Previously, tagging photos meant reviewing and tagging them one by one, which was time consuming. Photo Tagger makes organizing your family photos easier and accelerates your productivity, enabling you to tag hundreds of photos in minutes. You can still tag your photos individually as before, but Photo Tagger adds convenient and accurate bulk tagging.


Photo Tagger scans the photos that you’ve uploaded to MyHeritage, and groups together the faces believed to belong to the same individual, so you can review and tag them in one tap. Photo Tagger does an excellent job of identifying faces as they change over time, such as from childhood to adulthood, and even spots changes in individual appearance, such as facial hair.

Watch this short video to see Photo Tagger in action:

This feature is currently available on the MyHeritage mobile app, and in the coming weeks, we’ll be releasing it for the web as well. If you don’t have the app yet, you can download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.

You can read more about this feature and how it works on our blog. Feel free to use the graphic below and the video when spreading the word!

MyHeritage Theory of Family Relativity

I’m excited to tell you that MyHeritage has just completed an additional update to the data for our ultimate genetic genealogy tool, Theory of Family Relativity™!

In case you’re still unfamiliar with Theory of Family Relativity™, this feature pulls together billions of data points from across all the family tree profiles and historical records on MyHeritage to bring you theories about how your DNA Matches may be related to you. The calculations are run on a periodic basis, and since our last update, countless new DNA kits, family tree profiles, and historical records have been added to MyHeritage.

This means that the number of theories, the number of DNA Matches that include a theory, and the number of kits that have a theory have all increased significantly — and so have your chances of getting a new theory! As a result of this new update 25,636,711 Theories of Family Relativity™ were added.

MyHeritage Blast from My Past Podcasts

We are thrilled to tell you that we’ve passed the half-season point in Season 1 of our podcast, Blast From My Past — available on Spotify, Apple, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Frame 2

The Blast From My Past podcast features the incredible true stories of people whose lives were changed by what they discovered through MyHeritage about their family’s pasts — whether it was a close relative they never knew existed, the key to unlocking an old family mystery, or a newfound connection to a long-forgotten legacy.

Here’s a brief recap of the season so far:

Episode 1: “The Secret of Ereikoussa — Yvette Corporan had to know: did the entire Greek island community where her grandmother grew up really conspire to hide a Jewish family, right under the noses of their Nazi occupiers? Follow her quest to confirm this extraordinary story… and find out what happened to the family her grandmother helped to rescue.

Episode 2: “The Missing Piece— Abandoned at the same train station in Daegu, South Korea, just weeks apart, Kim and Christine were placed for adoption on opposite sides of the globe and grew up unaware of each other’s existence. Then came the DNA test results that changed everything.

Episode 3: “The Hero Who Fought Both Sides — In a 1933 photo, a Jewish shopkeeper, decorated with a German military medal from WWI, smiles wryly right next to a Nazi guard outside his shop. Who was this man, and what happened to him in the dark years? The answer tells an astonishing story of courage.

Episode 4: “The Real Uncle Sam — He wants YOU to join the U.S. Army. But who is this Uncle Sam in that iconic recruitment poster? It turns out that he was based on a real person — and this is his fascinating story.

Episode 5: “The Colombian Link — When a pair of Colombian half-brother adoptees reunited thanks to a DNA test, they couldn’t have known that their journey to find their birth families had only just begun… or exactly how far that journey would take them.

There are plenty more beautiful and mind-blowing stories on the way! Please help us reach a wider audience by sharing about the podcast and encouraging everyone you know to follow or subscribe to it, too.

Enjoy!
