Got Scandinavian Roots? See MyHeritage's 90+ millions new records just for you!

Looks like our friends at have been busy negotiating additional records group additions to their database collections. This is especially important for folks like Mr. Myrt who has Scandinavian roots. Here's some info from today's MyHeritage Blog announcement:

"The collections contain over 90 million names and include birth, death, marriage and baptism records, as well as census and many more records. This is in addition to 70 million profiles in 730,000 family trees already created by MyHeritage users with ancestors in this region. This is a treasure trove of records, not only for people living today in these countries but for all whose families originated in the region.

In addition to significant content added today, MyHeritage is investing in digitizing more Nordic historical content and has signed new agreements which will result in a wealth of regional historical records to be added over the next few years.

Today we’ve also launched dedicated social media channels for Norway, Denmark and Finland - including local blogs and Facebook and Twitter accounts. If you speak any of these languages we invite you to follow us (links below at the end of this post). Followers will be the first to hear about the new record collections as they become accessible. Followers will also receive updates on genealogy, along with hints and tips for advancing family history research.

How to view the new collections
This newly digitized content is already available for searching in SuperSearch, our global search engine for historical records. Record Matching technology will be unleashed on these records to automatically find relevant historical records for people in your tree.

To view these records, a Data subscription is required. Don't have one yet? Read more about our annual subscription which includes unlimited access to all historical records on SuperSearch and to all Record Matches. You can also read more information in the press release." Source:

Now, I've got to be sure Mr. Myrt adds to his side of our family tree, so he can:
  • Connect with other researchers
  • Find documents mentioning his ancestors in these extensive new record collections

Happy family tree climbing!
