MyHeritage RootsTech 2024 Recap

I received this information from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage today:


Another incredible RootsTech has come and gone! It was such a pleasure to see those of you who made it — I really enjoyed catching up with you.

I’m writing to give you a recap of all the announcements we made this year in our keynote, to make sure you didn’t miss a thing:20 billion records — we recently reached the significant milestone of 20 billion historical records available on MyHeritage!
  • All-new profile pages with hints — a major enhancement to the profile pages on MyHeritage including the ability to see and add new details from matches in the context of the page. Read more here.
  • — a whole new website for exploring historical newspapers from all over the world. Read more here.
  • Coming soon: AI photo scanner on the MyHeritage mobile app — the smart scanner previously available only on the Reimagine app will be added to the MyHeritage mobile app very soon.
  • Coming soon: share your DNA results with an expert — the ability to share your DNA results securely with a DNA expert to help you with your results will soon be added.
  • Coming soon: Ethnicity Estimates 2.0 — a major upgrade to our ethnicity estimate model will be released in the summer of 2024
By the way, the special promotion we had going for DNA data uploads — offering free access to Ethnicity Estimates and advanced DNA tools to anyone who uploads a new DNA data file to MyHeritage — has been extended until March 10. Make sure your followers know, in case they missed it.

I hope those of you who attended had a fantastic time and look forward to seeing you again next year!


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.
