Class Description

MyHeritage has rapidly risen in status among the “Big Four” Genealogy Research Sites (Ancestry, FamilySearch and FindMyPast) since its inception in 2003. Over the past five years, in particular, it has added many technological innovations to its web site. This presentation will provide an overview of the best and most frequently used features of MyHeritage and will also provide a short introduction to it’s Personal Genealogy Software Program—Family Tree Builder. Family Tree Builder and MyHeritage work together like Family Tree Maker and Ancestry.

MyHeritage has also developed a very effective set of tools for displaying and exploring your DNA data, for not only its own DNA tests; but, also, for data from other DNA testing companies. Incorporated into the presentation will be on-line demonstrations of many of MyHeritage’s key features, and a comparison between the Home and Library Editions.

A drawing for an annual subscription to MyHeritage’s database will happen after the class. So register below to be eligible for the drawing!
