What is Record Matching?

Click to view photo in full size

Record Matching intelligently compares the one billion family tree profiles on MyHeritage to the more than four billion historical records on SuperSearch and automatically finds matches for you.

It’s the same idea that’s behind Smart Matching™ technology, which already finds matches for you in other family trees.

If we find a Record Match for someone in your family tree, you’ll get an email and see the matches displayed on your family site.

Record Matches deliver vital records to you that can help you piece together the names, facts and dates for your family tree.

Record Matching on MyHeritage is the world’s first and only technology to find family tree matches in newspapers, yearbooks and other free-text documents. It’s also the first to translate names between languages, which means you can even find records in different languages!
