My Heritage is a subscription site and my GeneaGems are always free, so why I have included the new My Heritage digital book collection as a GeneaGem?
Because I attended the Legacy Family Tree Webinar at which My Heritage announced that this new collection is free to both search AND access AND that My Heritage plans to keep it that way forever!
Here is how you access the collection because it isn’t particularly intuitive. In fact, you might not even find it by chance! Go to the MyHeritage website and scroll down to the very bottom of the page:
My Heritage – RESEARCH tab
Click on RESEARCH. A new search page opens up.
Again scroll down the categories on the left until you see “Books and Publications.” Click again and the appropriate search box will open up:
This collection has over 91,000,000 pages – yes, the number of zeros is correct – and it is not limited just to the United States or even to English. As you can see in the Books and Publications list in the image above, some of the entries that came up are in French and German.
That’s all there is to it. Head on over to My Heritage and start your own GeneaGem search.
