MyHeritage's CEO Gilad Japhet Presentation to IGRA - New SuperSearch and Genetic Groups Are Coming

Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage sent this to me today:
"I thought you'd be interested to hear this keynote talk that Gilad gave this week. It contains information about some exciting new developments — some of which had never been made public before — during a talk he delivered online to the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) on June 23. While there are references in the first few minutes to Jewish historical records, the rest of the talk is not related to Jewish genealogy and describes MyHeritage’s latest features. Gilad also gives a sneak peek to exciting upcoming features that MyHeritage is currently developing in genealogy and DNA.
"Enjoy the summary of the keynote and the video at "
It was interesting to me, especially the new SuperSearch re-design (starting at 6:05), the new Fan View (starting at 13:12), and the Genetic Groups (starting at 32:10) features.  Here is the YouTube video:


Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and gave received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.
