MyHeritage CEO and Founder, Gilad Japhet will demonstrate a new online genealogy research system.
Recently, Israel-based MyHeritage acquired FamilyLink.com and WorldVitalRecords.com, in a strategic move to enter the U.S. genealogy market. This was another in a series of acquisitions which have included Pearl Street Software, makers of GenCircles.com and the Family Tree Legends software; free family tree backup service BackupMyTree.com; European family social network market leader OSN (Verwandt) GmbH; Dutch family network ZOOOF; British family network Kindo.com and Polish family network Bliscy.pl. MyHeritage is also the company that made waves several years ago when they developed and released facial recognition, a powerful photo-matching tool for genealogists.
It will be exciting to see if this new genealogy research system will provide an integrated search across the genealogical data they have amassed. If you're attending RootsTech 2012, be sure to get to the exhibit hall on Thursday February 2nd, from 1:30pm - 2:00 pm for a sneak demo and preview of some its (according to Daniel) amazing new features.
