“Discovering a long-lost relative or simply connecting to relatives not previously known often has a profound impact on people researching their roots,” commented MyHeritage Chief Genealogist Daniel Horowitz.  “We’re very excited to partner with Family Tree Magazine to help encourage family history enthusiasts to share their discoveries and consequently inspire others with their own research. With a growing worldwide family network of more than 56 million users and offering services in over 36 languages, reuniting families around the world is a core company value at MyHeritage.com.”
