New and Improved Family Statistics on MyHeritage

 I received this from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage today:


I’m thrilled to share that one of my favorite sections of the website, our highly useful Family Statistics feature, has just received a major upgrade! Family Statistics is a totally FREE feature that provides dozens of enlightening and fun insights about your family. If you love spotting trends and analyzing data, you won’t want to miss it.

Family Statistics shows you dozens of different analytics for your family tree. Using the metrics on the page, you can better understand your family history across several categories: places, ages, births, marriages, children, divorces, and now, relationships.

Among the many interesting facts that are showcased, you’ll learn which couple was married the longest and which pair of siblings had the largest age gap. You'll also discover who had the most children, who was married the most times, and even find out the most common birth months in your family. Think you know your family tree inside and out? Family Statistics may give you a few surprises.

The current update includes a facelift of the design for a more contemporary look. The display is larger, making the page easier to read. In this update, we’ve also added new insights and made the overall user experience on the page more enjoyable. In addition, the page is now mobile-friendly and can also be viewed on your phone’s web browser.

Beyond the cosmetic changes, we’ve also added a new category of metrics: Relationships. The Relationships page displays 6 charts that provide a deeper understanding of how the people in your family tree are related to you.

Read more about the improvements to Family Statistics, including the new Relationships page in the 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.
