MyHeritage Adds New Records from France, Sweden and Germany

Just received from MyHeritage:

I’m pleased to share that hundreds of millions of historical records have been added to MyHeritage from 3 significant collections! I invite you to share this exciting news with your audience so they can explore the collections and further their research. Here’s a quick overview of what’s new:


French Historical Records:

359 million records added

We’ve just published 359 million historical records from France from a vital records collection — including birth, marriage, and death records — and a naturalization records collection. Since mid-October 2021 we’ve added 844 million French records in total from 15 historical record collections. All these records were previously available exclusively through Filae. The new collections complement the huge French treasure trove of vital, census, military, and burial records, making MyHeritage an essential resource for anyone researching their French roots. Read more about these records in the blog post.


Update to Sweden, Household Examination Books, 1800–1947:

13.2 million records added

We’ve updated our collection of Sweden, Household Examination Books, adding 13.2 million historical records from the years 1800 to 1819. The collection now contains 158 million records spanning the years 1800 to 1947, and includes quality scanned images, and thanks to its robust index, you can follow individuals and families throughout the generations and gain invaluable insights into the lives of your Swedish ancestors.
