MyHeritage adds 1.3 Billion historical records in 37 collections in April and May

Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage provided this information today:


I’m excited to tell you that during April and May, MyHeritage added 1.3 billion historical records in 37 collections from all around the world. These records are from the U.S., the U.K., Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, and Ukraine, and they include birth, marriage, death, military, census, newspaper records, and more. Many of the collections include high-quality images alongside the indexes. With this update, the total number of historical records on MyHeritage has now reached 18.2 billion.

Our team is increasing the quality and accelerating the quantity of the historical records we publish to help our users make breakthroughs in their family history research — so stay tuned for more updates like this one.

You can view the full list of the collections, what they contain, and some sample records in our blog post. 


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.
