We’re excited to announce our latest enhancement to your family research experience on Geni – MyHeritage’s SuperSearch™! SuperSearch™ will bring you even greater access to billions of historical records to enrich your genealogy.

SuperSearch™ is a family history search engine that lets you search billions of historical records and millions of newspaper articles. With over 4 billion records including birth, marriage, death, burial, census, military, immigration, yearbooks, plus scans of the original documents, SuperSearch™ will help you add color to the lives of your ancestors.

Because SuperSearch™ is international, it has content relevant to all countries, with strong data collections from the USA, UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada. We’re rapidly expanding the data sets with the ambition to grow SuperSearch over time to be the largest worldwide collection of historical documents available online.
For one low price, a MyHeritage Data subscription will give you full access to SuperSearch™ on MyHeritage as well as Record Matches and Smart Matches™ on Geni.
