What are Record Matches?


Record Matches are historical records that match the individuals in your family tree. Record Matching automatically finds matching historical records for your family tree from MyHeritage's growing collection of billions of birth, death, and census records, newspapers and more. 

Record Matching does the work for you, saving you valuable time in your research. 

Here’s an example of a Record Match:


A simple click of the Confirm button will add the record to the Geni profile. A thumbnail of the document will appear as a Confirmed Match on the profile’s page. When you confirm a match, all users benefit, as they will see the record and a summary of the data in the record. Confirming a match also automatically creates a source and citation for the record and adds them to the profile. This is important for keeping track of the evidence that has allowed the user to reach the conclusions entered in the Geni profile.
