After a long and difficult year, we look forward to a bright and fruitful 2021. With the New Year come many resolutions, our favorite being spending more time on your genealogy research!
The MyHeritage team produced 195 Facebook Lives in various languages throughout 2020, bringing users worldwide together to share our passion for genealogy and DNA. The feedback was phenomenal, with hundreds of comments throughout the year about the sessions, providing small beacons of light during a time of such darkness. Shelly wrote “Thank you for making 2020 bearable with many of your FB lives,” Goran commented “My Heritage has given me many hours of pleasure…I wish I could share it with everyone.” You can find all recorded Facebook Live sessions in the videos section of our Facebook page, and many of the webinars are available for free viewing on the MyHeritage Knowledge Base.
We’re excited to bring you more informative and engaging online sessions over the coming months.
