MyHeritage LIVE User Conference in Oslo, Norway

Announcing the very first MyHeritage LIVE User Conference, in Oslo, Norway. Be there or be square!

Sorry for the 70s throwback. It’s just that I’m super excited to be attending and speaking at MyHeritage LIVE in Oslo, November 2-4, 2018.

Registration just opened with an early bird discount and only costs 75 Euro which is equivalent, today, to about $88 US. That’s a great value. (Yes, I know, you still have to get there, but I just found a round trip flight for about $700 which is less than my ticket to Salt Lake City earlier this year. You will also need a current passport.)

The conference will feature three tracks:

  • Genealogy
  • DNA
  • Hands-on workshops

I’ll let you guess as to which track to follow if you want to see my presentations. 😊

Of course, you can mix and match. The hardest part for me is selecting between wonderful speakers who are presenting at the same time.

Tickets also include a reception, the keynote by Gilad Japhet, MyHeritage founder, CEO and very inspirational speaker, lunch and a party on Saturday night. I can tell you, MyHeritage knows how to throw a genealogy party.

Here’s the list of international speakers. I’m sure you’ll recognize several names.

I realize this is rather short notice for a conference, but MyHeritage is known for taking the ball and running with it to get things done. Think of this as a “flash” conference. I hope that lots of Europeans will seize the opportunity to attend and DNA test!

If you haven’t yet DNA tested, there’s still time to order your test and receive your results before the conference. You can also transfer results to MyHeritage from Family Tree DNA, Ancestry or older 23andMe tests taken before August 2017, for free.

Just so you know, you don’t have to already be a MyHeritage user or subscriber to attend the conference. It’s open for all, at least until it’s sold out.

I can’t wait to see my old friends and make new ones too. I only attend or speak at a couple of conferences each year, so I pick and choose carefully. I hope to see you in Oslo.

Will you be attending? If so, please let me know so we can say hello in person!

  2. I didn’t know about this until I just read this so thanks a lot. I have just registered and paid for my flights and hotel accomodation. Looking forward to seeing you again in November!

  3. I wish MyHeritage much success in their future endeavors. I uploaded my raw data there and they have some fabulous tools with which to work and on a free basis. I found new and close matches that are not at FTDNA, 23 and Ancestry, nor Gedmatch.
    They apparently have hired the best programers out there.

    They are really poised to “kick some butt” (as my grandson would say) in the industry.

  4. Roberta, forgot to say have fun in Oslo; but you have probably already been there.
    Please bring us back lots of news.

    Oslo was the windiest place I have ever been. Maybe it was just an odd time, but the wind was so strong, at 115 pounds, I had to stop every few steps to grab/lean against a wall so I would not be blown over. Seriously! It was scary.

  5. I am so JEALOUS! But being mom’s caregiver takes precedence and I can not possibly go to Europe without spending at least a month there!
