2023 is already here and one of the highlights of the year is the NGS Family History Conference in Richmond, Virginia. MyHeritage considers it a real treat to participate in the conference, and its representatives will be there in full force with lectures and a space in the exhibit hall. Daniel and others from the MyHeritage team will be manning the booth to welcome you and showcase the new features and tools MyHeritage offers as well as to treat you with some swag and discounted prices on complete subscriptions and DNA kits.

Daniel will honor us with two lectures during this conference. On Friday, June 2, at 11:00 a.m., he will present session F223, Integrating DNA and Family History Research at MyHeritage. In this session, he will show you how to leverage MyHeritage’s DNA Matching technology, advanced DNA tools, and sorting and filtering capabilities to fill in the gaps in your family history knowledge and discover new connections. You will also learn how the detailed Ethnicity Estimate report can help you achieve insight into your family’s origins, and discover how the MyHeritage platform integrates your family tree information with your DNA information to help you gain a deeper understanding of where you come from.

The next day, Saturday, June 3, at 9:30 a.m., Daniel will present session S318 on Bringing Family Photos to Life on MyHeritage. MyHeritage has become the premiere platform for uploading, enhancing, and sharing old family photos. In this lecture, he will give you a detailed tour of all the photo features MyHeritage offers. Learn to animate your photos with Deep Nostalgia™; colorize and restore colors with MyHeritage In Color™; bring faces into sharp focus with the Photo Enhancer; record the stories behind your photos with the Photo Storyteller™; make your photos speak with DeepStory; and much more. Daniel will show you how to use MyHeritage to breathe new life into old photos and revive your family’s favorite memories.

Start planning your schedule now and make sure to attend these lectures, but don’t forget to take some time to visit the exhibit hall and say hi to the MyHeritage team. They would love to hear your success stories and help you and your family discover other relatives and improve any historical photos you may have.
