MyHeritage opens free access to 1billion birth records

MyHeritage is opening up its entire birth records collection to free access until Thursday 16 July.

While there are no Irish birth records in the database, researchers tracing ancestors who emigrated from Ireland or who have 'disappeared' from scrutiny in the most likely family history collections, may find they can catch up with them and/or their descendents in a thorough search of MyHeritage births collection.

It includes records from many parts of the world where you may not have previously looked. When did you last check if your 'missing' ancestor settled and had a family in the Netherlands, Iceland, Argentina or Hungary?

MyHeritage's birth collection gives access to more than one billion records across 104 record-sets from around the world.  Click/tap the image below to search it.
