Nordic Countries added to My Heritage

Dear friends,

With all these snow storms and freezing weather I can only think on two things: keeping myself warm and Nordic countries.

For the first one I'm having hot coco and sweaters. I hope you are also keeping yourself warm.

For the second one, I’m delighted to let you know that MyHeritage has launched a major initiative in the Nordic countries. We’ve added today over 32 million records from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, dating back to the early 1600s. 

Additionally, MyHeritage is investing millions of dollars to digitize more Nordic historical content and has signed new agreements that will result in a wealth of Nordic historical records to be added during the next few years.

The new collections contain over 90 million names and are comprised of birth, death, marriage and baptism records, as well census and many more. More detailed information about the collections for each market can be found in the press release below.

 As Gilad Japhet (MyHeritage Founder and CEO) put it, “This is a treasure trove not only for people in the Nordic countries but for everyone whose family originated from this region” and I know many of you have roots in these countries.

 MyHeritage has also launched dedicated social media channels for Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland; including a blog and Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Please see the official post about this initiative here (http://blog.myheritage.com/2013/12/new-myheritage-adds-millions-of-nordic-records/), and our press release below with visual attached.


Happy holidays
