MyHeritage Connects Family History To Historical Books

Lehi, Utah- and Tel Aviv, Israel-based family history site MyHeritage rolled out a new feature on Thursday, to automatically match its family history records to historical books. According to MyHeritage, the new "Book Matching" feature uses its users' family trees, to link to digitized historical books. The company says that it now has a collection of 450,000 digitized books--with a total of 91 million pages--among its records. The new book matching feature works with English books, but the company says it plans on extending that to cover additional languages in the future.
