Back in July 2015, we held a look-alike photo competition and asked users to send in look-alike pictures of family members from different generations. The results were incredible. In some cases descendants were so similar to their ancestors, it seemed as though we were looking at photos of the same person.Louis Beckstrom (born 1917) and great-grandson Mathew Beckstrom (born 1995)

We’re happy to introduce the Collection Catalog, a new section on our website listing the historical record collections indexed and available on MyHeritage SuperSearch™. The catalog is useful for beginners as well as professional users, as it details the number of records each collection contains, which collections are new, and the date in which each collection was added or last updated. Some people call this a “card catalog” in reference to the way libraries used to index their inventory on cards in the old days, but our Collection Catalog is digital; It is available online and includes many useful functions.

MyHeritage is proud to have recently reunited a mother and daughter who had been separated for over 43 years. Robin Adair Passey of Mesa, Arizona, never forgot the daughter she gave birth to at 15. She only had a chance to spend a few minutes with her before handing her over, never to see her again. Decades later, Robin and her husband had their DNA tested as part of a family history project.

Each of us gets about half our DNA from our mother and half from our father, so it’s really no surprise that we can all think of characteristics and traits that we’ve received from our mothers. Growing up, I always admired my mother’s sense of optimism. It didn’t matter what was happening in her life, she was always thinking of the best case scenario.

Mother’s Day in the United States — and in other countries around the world — is fast approaching, and there is no better gift for Mom this year than a MyHeritage DNA kit. Take advantage of our special mother’s day offer: $10 off MyHeritage DNA. Helping your mother reconnect with her roots is an excellent way to honor her and the other women in your family at this holiday.
