Beit Hatfutsot and My Heritage.com Announce Partnership

This is being posted on behalf of Daniel Horowitz, Genealogy and Translation Manager of My Heritage.com

On December 15, Beit Hatfutsot (Museum of the Jewish People) & MyHeritage announced a partnership to help preserve-for the future-digital information about the Jewish people.

This partnership, with your help, will add millions of data elements to the existing multimedia database at the Museum.

To participate: Go to the special MyHeritage.com page http://www.myheritage.com/BH to accept the terms & conditions and create a *free* account to start building your family tree. MyHeritage will periodically transfer the data to Beit Hatfutsot to update the database.

You and your family are part of the history of the Jewish people. By sharing your family tree with the Museum, preserve your family?s memory and history forever.

Please help everyone learn about this project through providing information on your Website, in your blog, at your synagogues, Jewish schools, Jewish organizations and any other media or group that might be interested to learn about this project.

Note: This project is not connected with JewishGen's Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP), although some data may appear in both. Submitting data to this project will not make it available on FTJP, and vice versa. For more information on FTJP, go to
