Signing up for a subscription to MyHeritage - Was It Worth It?

You've enjoyed the Legacy tips on her blog for years, but it wasn't until this past week that Diane Gould Hall thought she'd give MyHeritage a chance. She was hesitant in the past because as she wrote,

"why would I need to pay for another subscription service? What could they possibly offer that I don't already have access to?"

After subscribing to MyHeritage, and then uploading her GEDCOM from Legacy Family Tree, she experienced what so many of us have been reporting - new finds in records that she hadn't discovered anywhere else.

Diane wrote to me personally, told me that she is "eating her words about MyHeritage..." and that "sometimes we need to climb out of our comfort zone." Wow is she ever happy she tried something new. You can read all about her experience in her blog post here. And if you've missed her Legacy tips, this link will take you directly there.

 Good luck with your new tools Diane!

MyHeritage has come so far in so little time, and have been taking care of us Legacy users so well. If it's been a while since you've given it a try, visit www.myheritage.com today.

Introducing MyHeritage Football DNA Project

Footballdna

This is awesome! We call it soccer here in the U.S. but I understand the rest of the world calls the game Football. Regardless of its name, this project shows that we have more in common than that which divides us. Well done MyHeritage! 

Watch this quick sneak peek of the project.

About the presenter

ElisabethZetland-144x144French-born Elisabeth Zetland earned her Ph.D. (with Honors) in medieval history from Paul Valéry University in Montpellier, France. Her ground-breaking original research traced the family trees of Jewish families residing in Florence, Italy in the 15th Century, and enabled Elisabeth to document an economic and social history of Tuscan Judaism between 1437 and 1464. Elisabeth’s research talents and experience, as well as her passion for genealogy, made her a natural fit for MyHeritage, when she joined the company in 2011. In 2012 she became MyHeritage’s country manager for French-speaking markets, and since 2016 she has been a full-time member of the MyHeritage genealogy research team. She considers herself addicted to family history and totally devoted to the subject.

The new Pedigree View in your MyHeritage tree

For all of you (including me!) who hoped that someday the Pedigree View would arrive at MyHeritage - that day is finally here. No more endless scrolling or zooming in and out to navigate up and down your tree. Well, the Family View is still there if you really want it, but you're going to love the fresh new look and functionality of the Pedigree View. You'll find it in the upper right of your online tree:

Pedview

Legacy or MyHeritage???

Although I'm referring to and loving the new Pedigree View in my MyHeritage online tree, don't worry, I'm still using my Legacy Family Tree software for my main tree (which has had a Pedigree View from the beginning, although it's no longer as "pretty" as the MyHeritage Pedigree View). And while I manually update both, I'm looking forward to the upcoming Sync tool between the two (optional of course).

I'm glad I have my tree in both places and had a great experience with it this last Saturday. My Dad called me and asked if I remembered the full name of one of his cousins (he just met another Rasmussen and wondered if they were related). I wasn't home so didn't have access to my Legacy files, but I did have the MyHeritage mobile app on my phone. I opened the  app, clicked on the Tree icon, and quickly navigated to and found his cousin. I was able to easily do this because I had my tree online at MyHeritage (in a private tree that only I have access to). So there's advantages to using both.
