I had a good experience with MyHeritage support…both with the initial call and the follow up. I look forward to increasing my usage of the site. I should have called much earlier and would have saved some money. Thank you.

This website has shady marketing practices, debiting credit cards for what is termed a “free trial”.
They also cold call you on the telephone trying to get you to sign up.
I do not like the way they use females’ married names
Very poor value in my opinion … but it is an enticing site for the inexperienced and easily duped.

Biggest Pro: Seems to get elevated by Google
Biggest Con: Price, marketing, female surnames, layout, failure to deliver.

I have nothing but praise for this system, that I’ve used since 2011. Windows10 caught them out for a time though. They tell me that some issues are still being dealt to at present, and some tiny features that I like have dropped off - they include;
1/ On FTBv8.33 that the info in the Description field, of say the birth shown on is not now shown the reports. I have many hundreds of these feilds filled in with bdm registration info showing the personal details have been verified, by me. with a project with 90000+ names you need a easy tool like this to help you.

2/ merging of people during matching is not like it used to be - with the second person also added along with merge.

Most issues I have had are sorted very quickly and you feel as though you are on the team.

Biggest Pro: easy to use
Biggest Con: would like to see the price come down.

Very satisfied. The DNA testing is still new and there are a few technical glitches in getting kits activated to be sorted out but my issue was handled within a reasonable amount of time and satisfactorily. I’m trying to solve an adoption mystery from 1893 and, because the biological parents were immigrants to the US, the international DNA results are helpful for me.

Jag har I have been a FTB user sins 2011. It is too much to say I do a real research, but used it for documenting my family. It have been quite a lot up til now, oldest knovn person I have found is born about year 1580 and the total nunber of persons in my tree are 1079 today. It is grate to make an owerview of hov the different persons are related to ech other. I have used both Norwegian and Swedish churts record as my family have livd close to the border and it have ben a lot of movement betven this to countryes. The problem is that the churtsman did not alvays have a good handwriting. But it is as it is. Foto of each person is availible only from last part of the 18′th century.
Twice I have contactet MyHeritage Support and get the help I needed to solve my problems, Thank you very much.

Best regards Björn

Als Hobby-Familienforscher nutze ich MyHeritage seit vielen Jahren. Es gefällt mir sehr gut in der Strukturierung und man kann leicht Fotos einfügen. Die Auswertungen sind sehr vielseitig möglich und man kann daher bequem “seine” Listen zusammenstellen und ausdrucken. Klappt etwas nicht, gibt es einen hilfsbereiten und freundlichen Service

Bing translate: ‎MyHeritage as hobby genealogists I have used for many years. I like it very well in the structuring and photos can be inserted easily. The evaluations are very versatile and you can therefore conveniently put together “his” list and print out. Doesn’t work out something, there is a helpful and friendly service

I have found MyHeritage helpful in answering some queries I have had. The support team is very good.

Biggest Pro: Finding out more about my ancestors and who they were, and when they lived.
Biggest Con: Note being sure if some of the matches are correct or not - and continuing to be unsure in some cases.

The My Heritage Support Team has solved a problem of notes that would not save in Family Tree Builder using language that I could understand in an efficient and friendly manner. Have used My Heritage for several years with excellent results. I have recommended it a number of friends and relatives. Support workers Ron and Marina were excellent..

Biggest Pro: Solved a difcult issue
Biggest Con: A tad slow in getting back on initial request for help but worth the wait.

Ik ben tevreden over MyHeritage, werkt op zich makkelijk. Ik vind het alleen jammer dat de ID nummers zich niet automatisch aanpassen als er een persoon toevallig dubbel instaat of niet behoord tot de familie als deze dan verwijderd wordt. Misschien een puntje om het programma hierop aan te passen?

Biggest Pro: Duidelijkheid.
Biggest Con: Kosten.

The My Heritage site is very easy to use, it has good records (but could use more) and is great for connecting with other family sites with similar names. The support team are very helpful and obliging , i have found them willing to help at all times. The only draw back is the cost. Having said that i would recommend My Heritage.

Biggest Pro: Great for connecting with Family
Biggest Con: The cost

Have been using the program for several years, very satisfied with the possibilites of finding new family members, adding information about them and also satisfied with the graphics of the program. Very easy to use. Be a bit aware of incorrect matches though - dates, spelling of names - but you can always turn down a match and only accept the correct ones.
Very good, quick and most helpful Support Team. Solved my sync problem in no time and to my entire satisfaction.

Biggest Pro: user-friendly, possibility of adding a lot of information about family members
Biggest Con: a bit too “automated” for the experienced user

When I first started with My Heritage, I found the research data available along with the Smart Matches and Record Matches to be great. I found information in the newspaper archives that I had been looking for for years.
However, when I started making entries in my family tree, I made some entries wrong and could never figure out how to correct them. The errors just kept getting worse.

Recent help on the DNA upload from 23andme has been super.

Biggest Pro: research tools
Biggest Con: correcting mistakes in the family tree.

MyHeritage Review by Branko Brodniansky,  Nov 28, 2016

My experience with the MyHeritage Family Tree Building.
I am the author family tree “Brodniansky” with 1710 people, I created a version of the seventh
Program MyHeritage Family Tree Building used already four years.
I am very satisfied with the possibilities offered by the program, especially with lots of utilities.
In November 2016 I switched to the new version 8. I have found that this version is not fully compatible with version 7. Incompatibility is manifested in the creation of charts from data entered even in version 7th.
Instead of marking the profession graph display data associated with the profession, such as the date and place. I was looking for help to email addresses Almost immediately he began my issue with MyHeritage Support Team. Such a quick response I was very pleased. Solving my issue took place almost on-line communication. The first draft of MyHeritage support team, to find a solution within Version 8, did not yield a positive result. So I decided to go back to a previous version of the program.
  MyHeritage Support team once again provide all necessary advice.
Error graph display after returning to version 7 no longer exists. Said act created certain complications that it was necessary to re-associate photos with individuals.
I want to thank this MyHeritage Support Team for their operability.
Branko Brodniansky, Slovakia

Biggest Pro: Very interested in my problem, worked hard to show me how to fix it.
Biggest Con: Loss of data for the last day of work in Version 8

Great assistance from Yoel at My Heritage via Team Viewer to resolve the sync problem that I had between the website and Family Tree Builder. It must have taken about 4 hours to resolve! Excellent support!!

Biggest Pro: My sync is now working
Biggest Con: Took a few days for our diaries to coincide to facilitate the resolution of the problem.

Weihnachten 2015 brachte mich meine Enkelin auf die Idee, einen Stammbaum zu erstellen.
Die Idee war gut, aber mit meinem Allerweltsnamen des deutschen Handwerker-Adels, würde ich wohl nicht weit kommen, dachte ich, denn ich hatte nur die Daten meiner Eltern und der Großmutter mütterlicherseits.
Zusammen mit den Daten über die Vorfahren meiner Frau, waren es etwa 30 Personen, die die ganze Familiengeschichte ausmachten.
Ich wollte eigentlich nur die Personen in ihren Beziehungen in der Software abbilden und dann ausdrucken. Daher hab ich auch nur mit der kostenlosen Software-Version gearbeitet.
Ich habe mich eigentlich nur für die Premium-Plus-Version entschieden, um das Alles-in-Einem-Diagramm zu erstellen und ausdrucken zu lassen.
Doch dann ging es erst richtig los und es kamen ständig neue, echte Top-Treffer.
Inzwischen enthält mein Stammbaum mehr als 450 Personen, mit allen wichtigsten Lebensdaten und der sichere Nachweis der Verwandtschaft 1. Grades väterlicherseits geht bei mir bis in das Jahr 1652 zurück.
Ausdrucken kann ich das Alles-in-Einem-Diagramm schon lange nicht mehr, weil es die Dimensionen meiner Wohnzimmerwand sprengen würde.
Es ist ein unglaublich tolles Gefühl, auf einmal ein so umfangreiches Wissen über die gesamte Familie in all ihren Verzweigungen zu haben. Das hätte ich nicht für möglich gehalten.
Man weiß wirklich nicht zu schätzen, wo man ist, wenn man nicht weiß, wo man herkommt.
My Heritage bietet einen kompetenten und schnellen Support. Als ich ein Problem mit „Geister-Ehen“ hatte, wurde mir schnell per Email, Schritt für Schritt erklärt, wie ich das Problem lösen kann.
Wer ernsthaft an der Erforschung seiner Ahnen interessiert ist, kommt an My Heritage nicht vorbei. Eine unglaublich vielschichtige und mächtige Software. Unbedingt zu 100% weiterzuempfehlen.

‎ My heritage offers a fast and competent support. When I had a problem with “Ghost marriage”, I was quickly by email, explains step by step how I can solve the problem. ‎
‎ Who is seriously interested in the exploration of his ancestors, not coming to my heritage. An incredibly complex and powerful software. Be sure to recommend 100%.‎

I’ve been with My Heritage for quite a few years. If you are really interested in knowing where you’ve come from, this is the site for you. On many occasions, when reviewing matches, I was shocked to know where some of the family came from. You will be too - shocked and absolutely delighted. Go for it and be prepared to be so grateful for the My Heritage website - it’s truly amazing.

Biggest Pro: Pretty easy to use
Biggest Con: Can’t think of any at the moment
