SuperSearch includes more than four billion genealogy records such as birth, marriage, death, burial, census, military, immigration, yearbooks and other types of records, plus scans of the original documents.

It also includes MyHeritage family trees, photos and members that are public – altogether more than one billion exclusive records from all over the world that in most cases can only be found on MyHeritage.

SuperSearch provides worldwide coverage with content relevant to all countries.

We are rapidly expanding the data sets and plan to grow SuperSearch over time to become the largest international collection of historical documents available online.

How it works:

In SuperSearch all the content is fully searchable by first name and/or last name. For professionals, we support more name Soundex techniques to pick from than any other genealogy website. For beginners, any search you do covers synonyms and initials.

For example, if you’re searching for William, don’t worry, we’ll also catch Bill, Vilhelm, Guillaume, Guglielmo and more variations and synonyms than you might recognize.

You can search for people without even knowing their full name, for example, find 3 brothers in the same family using only their first name, if that’s what you know, or look for anyone who was born in a certain date or in a certain country and died in another.

Searching by any type of events and any relatives is easy. Start with a global search in all collections at once. From there you can look into specific collections to narrow your search.

Use Summary Mode to see the results according to collection so you can explore the ones you want.
