MyHeritage Introduces New SuperSearch Alerts

MyHeritage has just launched a new feature — SuperSearch™ Alerts — that repeats previous searches that MyHeritage users have made in SuperSearch and seeks new results that did not exist at the time of the original search.

When MyHeritage finds new results for those previous searches, the company will send you an email message with links to view the records, and if you’d like, you can save it to your family tree, extract information to the relevant people in your family tree, or add new individuals to your tree.

SuperSearch Alerts works automatically in the background ensuring that you won’t miss new records that have been added to MyHeritage’s collections that are relevant to your past searches. As stated in the MyHeritage Blog:

From now on, we will automatically repeat old searches you’ve made on SuperSearch, in the background, every two months. We detect relevant results that were not available previously. We then send you an email about the new results found, with links to view the records. As with any record on SuperSearch, once you view it, if you consider it relevant, you can easily save it to your family tree (creating a citation pointing to the record) and extract information to the relevant people in your family tree, or add new individuals to your tree.

SuperSearch Alerts cover every search you’ve made (when you were logged in to MyHeritage) since SuperSearch was launched in 2012, satisfying every condition you’ve specified in every search (such as birth years, death years, relatives, places, etc). Searches for extremely common names or searches that yield too many results are automatically excluded from SuperSearch Alerts, because when there are too many results, chances are that the new results are not relevant, and we don’t want to waste your time.

SuperSearch Alerts is rolling out gradually, starting with the first group of 10 million MyHeritage users. If you do not receive any email notices just yet, just wait a while. It will take several days to add the functionality to all of MyHeritage’s 80 million+ registered users.
