Sharing the Success: MyHeritage Makes Connections

Presenter: Schelly Talalay Dardashti


MyHeritage has successfully connected many families as a result of both traditional genealogical work and with our entry into the world of DNA in November 2016. The MyHeritage Tribal Quest pro bono program also sends researcher teams to extreme locations to record indigenous people's stories and preserve genealogical information. Learn how we have shared both types of stories to the world.
