MyHeritage Introduces New Discoveries Pages

MyHeritage (the sponsor of this newsletter) has just introduced a new improvement called Discoveries Pages. These pages provide a unified experience for all matches, organizing them into two main pages:

  • Matches by People
  • Matches by Source


The new pages allow you to look at all matches that were found for a particular individual in your family tree, or all matches found in a particular collection of historical records or matching family tree. Whatever you choose to use, the new pages combine Smart Matches (matches with trees) and Record Matches (matches with records) into the same unified and consistent interface.

The new Discoveries Pages display the new information that each match provides, and matches are arranged by the value that they add to your family tree, so that those matches that add the most value are listed first. This saves you time and allows you to focus on the most valuable matches. You can easily save all new and improved information to your family tree.

I just started experimenting with the new Discoveries Pages this morning and am still learning how everything operates. However, so far, they look good. To learn more about the Discoveries Pages, you can read a rather detailed description (with screenshots) in the MyHeritage Blog at:


I’ve been using MyHeritage for about a year now and couldn’t be happier that they’ve changed how they suggest matches – it’s been overwhelming in the past, particularly if you have a large family tree. I can’t wait to start using the new system! Thanks for posting this information, Dick.


Thanks for posting. I too noticed this upgrade recently and like it a lot. I love Myheritage for my family tree and have gotten acquainted with several “new to me” cousins through developing my family tree. Thanks for your enlightening newsletters!
