FamilySearch Records begin appearing MyHeritage.com


Pursuant to the agreement between FamilySeach.org and MyHeritage.com, records from FamilySearch.org are starting to appear in MyHeritage.com and linked back to FamilySearch. This instance showed up in a Record Match for Utah, Salt Lake County Death Records, 1908-1949. Here is a screenshot of the collection on FamilySearch.org:


Being able to search FamilySearch.org records from MyHeritage.com obviously adds value to MyHeritage.com but also adds value to FamilySearch.org but in a different way. Since FamilySearch is looking to have their records used, they gain value from the arrangement.

    1. The two programs are not connected by the user yet at any level. The records from FamilySearch are being searched by the MyHeritage program with their Record Match technology.
