    Sherlock Holmes for MyHeritage at NGS2013


    Here I am with Sherlock Holmes and Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage
    at the Press Conference announcing the new Record Detective feature
    of the research software.

    MyHeritage Announces the Record Detective

    Saturday morning I attended the MyHeritage press conference where Daniel Horowitz announced the newest feature of the software program, the Record Detective. In a clever play with the name, Holmes' costumed assistants met attendees in the hallway with the query, "Are you seeking a clue?" The direction to the second floor conference room was helpful, and the team continued with the theme in the introduction, press packet, and fun detective mustaches.

    Record Detective is a record and people matching feature that seeks out material from the MyHeritage databases to help expand research and trees. It allows users to review, and extract information to add to their own research and works on both public and private trees.

    I'm looking forward to trying it out and will post more info. Check out Randy Seaver's notes at Genea-Musings for his overview and view the video introduction on YouTube:

    Who could complain? More records in less time. Doesn't MyHeritage charge a membership fee? I'll look into it, though. Thanks!

    Hi Mariann,

    MyHeritage have some collections for free and others were you will need to pay a fee and get what we call a "Data Plan".
    The Record Detective will bring you Record Matches even if you don't pay; its the actual viewing of the records what request the payment.

    Feel free to upload your GEDCOM or start building a tree on MyHeritage to enjoy this new powerful technology.
