MyHeritage adds search records by location

You can now browse and search historical records by geographic location in the historical records search engine, SuperSearch. SuperSearch contains billions of global historical records and tree profiles, originating from practically all countries. Below SuperSearch's main search form you will find a new, clickable world map which enables you to search for records in a specific country or region. Here is a screenshot showing the new search area:

The area at the bottom of the screenshot adds the link to searching by area with an interactive map of the world. One of the main values of this type of sorting of data is that you can see a list of all of the collections currently available. By checking down the list, you can tell whether or not there is even a possibility of finding an ancestor in the available collections. This is a nice, graphical way to filter searches.
