We are in the process of ramping up for RootsTech 2016 and news about genealogy is starting to appear in the media. The latest news from Israel is about MyHeritage.com. The coverage is an overview of MyHeritage, what they do, and how they help millions of people worldwide discover their family history. It also showed how they helped facilitate a very special reunion on the Greek Island of Ereikoussa, between the Islanders who hid a Jewish family in WWII, and the descendants of that family. The piece also showed clips from a YouTube.com video that they produced, where they took their Instant Discoveries™ to the streets, this time in Israel. Within seconds, passersbys found ancestors, relatives, new information and photos demonstrating the MyHeritage global reach. You can see this video above.
Here is the TV segment.
Here is another video featuring the CEO of MyHeritage, Gilad Japhet at IAJGS 2015.
I will be teaching two short presentations at RootsTech 2016 for MyHeritage.com. Look for me on Thursday and Saturday at 3:15 pm at the MyHeritage booth.
