MyHeritage Will Demonstrate Latest Features At RootsTech 2014

Here is some information from MyHeritage about their founder and CEO, Gilad Japhet;

1)  "It's not every day Genealogy gets such attention in the New York Times, so I wanted to share this with you.

"Gilad was responsible for solving several mysteries that the French authorities could not solve for 70 years!

"Not every CEO, even those from genealogy companies, can use their own personal genealogy expertise and time to help others pro-bono as Gilad did for this article by Doreen. It's great praise of MyHeritage's technologies which were built by genealogists for genealogists and were used to discover the rightful heirs of these stolen art works. Gilad's fluent French definitely helped here too!"

2)  Bloomberg TV had a three minute video about two weeks ago about the development of MyHeritage website and technology in which they interviewed Gilad Japhet - watch it here or in the video below:

The MyHeritage blog described this video by:

"Gilad explained how MyHeritage was founded in his home and grew to become an international company with 75 million users worldwide and how we're continually launching new technologies that make family history easier and accessible for everyone. He also discussed how proud we are as a company to be able to help families reunite."

3)  MyHeritage will be at RootsTech 2014 and will demonstrate their newest databases, technologies and features, including:

*  Millions of New Records Now Live!

*  Millions of Geni Profiles Now Available on SuperSearch

*  Add Family Tree Profiles From Historical Records

*  New Feature: Search Historical Records by Location

I look forward to visiting the MyHeritage exhibit and seeing their representatives at RootsTech 2014 and seeing more about their features and technology.
