MyHeritage has long had the best record matching of any of the online genealogy sites. Its accuracy has to be seen to be believed. The accuracy of the matched records runs around 99%. MyHeritage also sponsors this newsletter so obviously I can be accused of bias. However, I honestly believe I would write the same thing even if MyHeritage was not the sponsor. Now the company has taken an already good thing and improved it even further. The following announcement was written by the folks at MyHeritage:
With the Record Detective™, records found in MyHeritage SuperSearch™ automatically point to additional records and family tree profiles relating to the same person. For example, if you’re viewing a birth certificate you found in SuperSearch™, Record Detective™ may point you to a census record containing information about the child’s grandmother, a marriage license for their parents, a family tree profile of a connected ancestor, and so on, giving you new leads for your research. However, the Record Detective™ was only able to find information when there was at least one family tree profile on MyHeritage matching the record.
The new Record Detective™ II adds direct record-to-record matches, even for records that have no matching family tree profiles on MyHeritage, and has yielded a staggering 2.2 billion additional highly-accurate matching documents.
Record Detective™ II provides new information and clues to take your family history research to newer heights.
