JGSGB – Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain – welcomes MyHeritage as Gold Sponsor of its First Family History Fair, being held at the De Vere Village Urban Resort in Elstree’s Centennial Park on 7th July 2013 between 10am and 6pm. MyHeritage is the most popular family history network on the web with more than 75 million registered members and more than 4 billion searchable historic records.
MyHeritage has the world’s largest collection of Jewish family trees, and is particularly relevant for those tracing their Jewish ancestors or relatives in Eastern Europe, Israel, USA, South America, Australia, and other Jewish centres.
With MyHeritage you can:
- Build a family tree and print beautiful family tree charts.
- Use SuperSearch to search more than four billion historic records for details of ancestors and relatives (including birth, marriage, death and census records, and even newspaper articles), and receive automatic notification of matching records.
- Create a family site and share details of your ancestors, including memories and photos, with your relatives.
- Receive automatic alerts, if you wish, of others researching the same ancestors as you have in your tree.
Staff from MyHeritage will be at the Fair providing demonstrations and offering free look-ups. They will also explain how to get started with free Family Tree Builder software.
Laurence Harris, Head of Genealogy (UK) for MyHeritage, specialist Jewish genealogical researcher and a former Chairman of JGSGB, will be one of the speakers at the Fair, giving a presentation on “Family Trees, SmartMatching, SuperSearch and Record Matching”.
