As a genealogy expert, I often read blog posts and articles written by my fellow genealogists. A few weeks ago, I found an interesting post by Kathryn Lake Hogan, on the importance of archives and preparations we should follow when researching there. Kathryn has allowed us to re-publish her post here. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
DNA Matching is one of the main features of the MyHeritage DNA kit. It is also still available for free for users who have tested with other DNA services.
We’ve just added several useful new features to DNA Matching, to make it easier for you to find and connect with relatives based on shared DNA. Here are the new features:
Extended information about shared ancestral surnames
Roy van der Windt, 31, is a MyHeritage user from Zeist, the Netherlands. He has been using MyHeritage since 2010 but, in 2016, he became a volunteer translator for MyHeritage, helping us better serve our Dutch users.
Ever since the MyHeritage Community Q&A forum launched in April 2016, Roy has been extremely active in the MyHeritage Community.
As 2017 begins, the genealogy world is looking forward to a great year of events and gatherings. Lectures, conferences, and appearances are already scheduled to talk about MyHeritage’s new features, the future of genealogy and general research.MyHeritage team at RootsTech 2016, presenting new features

I would like to embrace all the people that I love and to tell them how much they mean to me.
2016 has been a historic year around the world and also a significant year for MyHeritage.
We’re happy to present to you the highlights of the year on MyHeritage:
In January, we released the new Audio Recordings feature in the MyHeritage mobile app. Now you can interview relatives directly from their family tree profile, and store the interview for future generations.
There is never enough time to achieve everything we would like in our family history. In the rush to find new information, sometimes critical activities get forgotten. So, at least once a year, it is important to take stock and check that we have not missed anything important, to consider what we now need to do what is important and to make New Year resolutions to work on our family history in a smarter way, and to have fun while we are doing it — otherwise what’s the point?
