MyHeritage’s Institutional Service Now at Family History Centers

FamilySearch introduces MyHeritage’s institutional service at Family History Centers and Libraries around the world. The MyHeritage Library Edition is now accessible for free and in 40 languages. MyHeritage’s new institutional service is a powerful online service that provides instant access to billions of historical documents, millions of historical photos, and other resources in thousands of databases.

“We’re delighted to allow our patrons to benefit from the large amount of family history information that MyHeritage offers,” said Dennis Brimhall, FamilySearch CEO. "MyHeritage’s ability to constantly deliver great technology for genealogy enables us to better serve the visitors to our centers, and helps the family history community as a whole."

"MyHeritage and FamilySearch share a vision to make family history more accessible to everyone," said MyHeritage’s Founder & CEO Gilad Japhet. "We’re delighted to make the MyHeritage Library Edition™ available to the patrons of FamilySearch’s institutions all over the world."

MyHeritage is another tool in your toolkit to help patrons find their family names and to prepare them for sacred temple ordinances. If your patrons have European ancestry, they will particularly find that MyHeritage can help them in their search for ancestors. In future months, FamilySearch will offer articles and other training to help you as a director to use the resources of this powerful new partnership. In the meantime, you and your staff can explore MyHeritage and become acquainted with what it has to offer you and your patrons. Find MyHeritage on the Family History Center Portal.
