With some recent acquisitions My Heritage.com has just grown in size. This online database now consists of 13 million family trees, 47 million members and 530 million profiles, they are the largest international site dedicated to families on the web.
They have just acquired from the Hamburg, Germany-based OSN Group, a network of leading family sites, including Verwnadt.de (Germany), Moikrewni.pl (Poland) and Dynastree.com (USA)
New technologies from OSN are being integrated into My Heritage.com with the Family Crest Builder, which went live today February 2nd. A new version of the web tree viewer was released yesterday for easier navigation and better visual graphics. You can include a crest as a background image for the tree.
This will help North American members connect with their European relatives and ancestors. As part of the acquisition, MyHeritage.com will be establishing an office in Hamburg where experienced OSN team members will be based.
With this recent announcement, My Heritage.com is certainly worth investigating if you are not already one of its many members.
