The MyHeritage Search Engine for Historical Records Just Got Better

This was just received from MyHeritage

MyHeritage is pleased to announce that our search engine for historical records has been 

redesigned and improved. Searching our treasure trove of 12.5 billion historical records is now 

easier and more intuitive than ever before!

We redesigned the search engine to improve the user experience. Our main goals in this initiative

 have been the following:

  • Provide faster performance to allow users to run more searches in less time
  • Allow users to edit the search while viewing the search results.
  • Run it again, to make it easier for them to locate the records they need
  • Display more results on each page
  • Simplify the experience by unifying simple search and advanced search into one 
             search form that is simple to use and powerful in capability.

Additionally, our search engine will automatically suggest typical filters in global searches, 

and more relevant filters that will enable you to narrow down your searches within the current 

category or collection you are searching in. We’ve also added icons under the record name to 

clearly distinguish between a historical record and a family tree record. 

More improvements are in store over the coming months, including applying the new design 

when browsing our collections from mobile devices and more as described in the blog post. 

Stay tuned!
