For everyone that has been waiting for the MyHeritage LIVE 2018 webinars, they are available free at Legacy Family Tree Webinars, here.
One really nice thing MyHeritage did was to include the actual speaker’s slides on the left side of the screen, with the speaker shown to the right. This means that you’re going to be able to see the slides better than many people attending the conference.
I spy several that I need to watch – like learning more about the MyHeritage Mobile App, Newspaper Research strategies and how to more effectively use SuperSearch.
I mostly attended the DNA sessions, so I need to watch the genealogy ones online.
I do have a recommendation for you though.
Gilad Japhet’s keynote was incredible. So inspirational, powerful and moving – in a way that all genealogists can relate to. Riveting is the word that comes to mind. You could have heard a pin drop.
The great thing is that Gilad is making the changes happen in how records are searched and indexed at MyHeritage that will benefit his own research – and ours too, right along with his. Not to mention leading edge genetic technology like extracting DNA from envelopes and stamps. The jury is still out on this, so stay tuned.
Happy Holidays to You
You can give yourself an early (free) holiday present by setting time aside to watch these information-filled sessions.
There are a total of 18 free sessions from the conference and another 27 free classes about how to use MyHeritage for a total of 45.
Make yourself a list of the sessions you’d like to watch and watch one a day – sort of a genealogical version of the 45 days of Christmas😊
Of course, genealogy research works much better if it includes DNA testing.
Upload Your DNA
Don’t forget that DNA uploads and tools are free at MyHeritage until December 1, but after that there will be a cost for their advanced tools. Anyone who tests there or uploads before December 1 will be grandfathered in for free. That’s just 2 more days so don’t wait!
Click here to upload your DNA for free.
I wrote step-by-step instructions here for downloading your DNA from other sites and uploading to MyHeritage.
Test Your DNA
If you haven’t tested your DNA, order a test now by clicking here while the holidays sales are in full force.
I receive a small contribution when you click on some (but not all) of the links to vendors in my articles. This does NOT increase the price you pay but helps me to keep the lights on and this informational blog free for everyone. Please click on the links in the articles or to the vendors below if you are purchasing products or DNA testing.
Thank you so much.

Wow 🙂 !
Thank you for this video information 🙂 ,
My brother and I both tested with FTDNA, but I’m the only one who purchased a Family Tree. Does that cover both of us in the upload to MyHeritage, or should I get my brother his own Family Tree and upload that?
Yes, he should test and upload too.
Sorry–I meant FTDNA Family Finder, not Family Tree. I’d uploaded my Family Finder to My Heritage. Does that cover me and my brother, who has his own FTDNA account, or do I need to upload his Family Finder as well?
You need to have him upload his own too. He will have many matches that you don’t because you inherited different pieces of DNA from your parents.
