Posted January 31, 2014 by Amanda | No Comment

We’re excited to announce that more than 160 million new U.S. and UK historical records have been added to MyHeritage’s growing collection of historical records. These new records are available now in your Record Matches for your Geni profiles and through SuperSearch™, MyHeritage’s powerful search engine for historical records.

These records come from hundreds of collections containing vital records for births, baptisms, marriages and deaths, military records, censuses and much more.

What’s new?

For the UK, over 118 million new records have been added. The largest collection, “England Births and Christenings,” dates back to 1538 and contains over 192 million names, including births and christenings from various localities.

In addition, over 42 million U.S. records for birth, death, burial, marriage and military and many other types of records from all over the country have been added.

How to view the new collections

These new records are available now in your Record Matches. Simply click on the Record Match icon to see what new records have been matched to your family tree.

Here’s a match to William Shakespeare’s christening record in Stratford-on-Avon, Warwick, England. Confirm the Record Match to link it directly to the profile on Geni.

You can also access these collections by clicking the “Research this Person” link directly from your Geni profiles. This will automatically take you to MyHeritage’s SuperSearch™ results for that profile using the information already provided on Geni.

A MyHeritage data subscription is required to view these records in full. With a single data subscription, you will have unlimited access to all Record Matches and Smart Matches™ on Geni, as well as full access to MyHeritage’s SuperSearch™. If you don’t have one yet, now may be just the right time to upgrade!
