One Woman’s Success with MyHeritage

We recently received the following feedback from a genealogist about her recent experience with MyHeritage:

“I have been researching family history for almost 30 years. I did not think that MyHeritage could offer more clues on long-standing brick walls I had, but it actually did. Their search functions seems to operate differently than the others so I decided to give it a try. Since joining MyHeritage, I have located a branch of my Grandmother’s family in Europe that went missing after the second World War so that was a miracle!  MyHeritage also solved another impossible brick wall for me with more records and newspaper sources. And Smart Matches continues to surprise me !” Magda Maria

The Genealogy Fairy is a genealogy-focused grants program working to make family history dreams come true!

A Special Incentive – Announcing The Genealogy Fairy

I’ve been very blessed with my success not just at genealogy but also earning affiliate income from various offers such as the one from MyHeritage below. I’ve come up with a way to say thank you to everyone who uses my links for these offers and to give back to the genealogy community.

So I’ve created The Genealogy Fairy and the grant application process begins on August 1, 2015. Here’s a sneak peek at how the program will work:

Each month I’ll take 5% of my affiliate revenues and donate it to various genealogy-related programs. These will include general genealogy society fundraising, special projects and even personal grants to genealogists wanting to attend conferences or publish a family history. So please know that when you shop with links that I post, part of what you spend gets returned to fund worthwhile genealogy programs!
