Near the bottom of the post is a list of some of the new record collections added by MyHeritage during 2016. It's difficult to find what is new on MyHeritage because they don't have a list that highlights what is new and updated, other than the occasional blog post for a specific collection.
Here is the Historical records list from the article, followed by some statistics for 2016:
- 97 Million Records from England & Wales, Birth Index, 1866-1920 & 1984-2005
- 41 Million Records from England & Wales, Death Index, 1866-1920 & 1984-2005
- 1 million searchable Online Familieberichten – Dutch Death Notice records
- 27 Canada Census Records (1861, 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901, 1911)
- 21 Million Denmark Census Records (1870, 1890, 1901, 1906, 1911, 1916, 1921, 1925)
- 33 Million Finland Church Census and Pre-Confirmation Books, 1657-1950
- 26 million Denmark Church Records, 1814-1919
- 24 Million United States World War I Draft Registrations, 1917-1918
- 6 Million New York City Marriages 1950-1995
- 802 million new historical records added.
- 727 million new family tree profiles added.
- 61 million new photos added.
- 76 employees joined the company in 2016 (we went up from to )."
I noted that they added the Chronicling America collection; MyHeritage closed down the NewspaperARCHIVE collection during 2016, perhaps due to licensing issues, which was a loss to subscribers.
I am happy to see the Canada census collections because I don't have an Ancestry.com World subscription.
Disclosure: I have a complimentary MyHeritage subscription, and have received material compensation for services from MyHeritage.
