Free Marriage Records on MyHeritage To Celebrate Valentine's Day

I received this today from MyHeritage:


I’m pleased to share that from February 13–17, 2024, MyHeritage is granting free access to our vast treasure trove of marriage records: all 254 collections containing 746 million historical records.

This is the perfect opportunity to dive into the love stories that marked the beginnings of new family branches. They typically reveal names, birth dates, places of birth, and residences of the bride and groom, often extending to details about their parents or the witnesses, who might be close family friends or relatives.

Adding to the spirit of love this season, our research team uncovered a fascinating trend in baby naming. Did you know the baby name Love is gaining popularity across the U.S.?

The team at MyHeritage dove into public records and discovered that last year, Love made it to the top 1000 most popular names for the first time since 1893! That’s right, over a century ago, Love wasn’t just a word for affection but also a cherished baby boy’s name. Its highest peak back then was in 1902, ranking at number 838. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it seems like love really is in the air, and now, more than ever, it’s making its way into the names of our newest generation.

Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and have 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.  I am a subscriber to Family Tree Webinars and love it.
