About this webinar

Many of us are not able to travel to those places where our ancestors lived to do genealogy research. This should not deter us from finding information about our ancestors. MyHeritage can be your “home away from home” online archive to help you find information on your ancestors. Learn from a seasoned genealogist and archivist how to find archived records on MyHeritage from home.

    Never really even thought about archives and reaching out to others and didn’t even realize I have my own archive and I am a archivist!! This is very valuable information!!

    Thank you for reminding me that there are many resources made available to me, and I need to do more with MyHeritage with all the resources that I have at my fingertips!

    This was an excellent webinar. It was packed with information about archives in general. Don’t be mislead by the title, it is not just about the My Heritage archive. The speaker was very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed her presentation.

    I’m glad that she included the MyHeritage process, step-by-step, to finding and using some of the various collections. The presentation was at a nice pace. I never got lost.

    That was a particular fulsome explantation and demonstrations of what is available. The fact that the archivist is also a genalaogist makes it a well researched and apposite event. Thankyou!
