What I {heart} about MyHeritage LIVE

The MyHeritage LIVE conference has all of the feel of a small, intimate meeting of genealogists, and all the bang and excitement of the splashiest conference production. With MyHeritage’s special touches, of course—they really know how to turn genealogy into a PARTY!

Of course I love the full two-day DNA track on Saturday and Sunday, taught by myself, Blaine Bettinger, Ran Snir, Professor Yaniv Erlich, Alon Diament Carmel and Leah Larkin. You also get to hear from all the other bigwigs at MyHeritage, too (who are actually a set of fantastic people who share our passion for family and family history), and meet genealogists from all over the world. And if you use my coupon code (DIAHAN10), you can get 10% off your registration!


This year I am especially excited to reveal a big discovery I made through MyHeritage DNA about my grandmother's family. I nearly bursting to tell you all about it, but alas, you will just have to wait until September. (Unless you watch this little teaser video, and then you’ll know JUST a little more.)

If you have to travel to get there, you may as well do it right….

As a double bonus, I am taking my fabulous husband with me in celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary! (Here we are during our MyHeritage LIVE 2018 trip to Norway.) We are going to make a couple stops before we hit Amsterdam, including to Lisbon, Portugal where my husband lived for two years back in the late 90's. He has always wanted to take me back there, so we are very excited that this opportunity came up. If you’re thinking about going to Amsterdam, consider WHO you might take or WHERE else you might go to make the trip even more fun.

Since I’m taking my husband, that means I actually need to have my presentations complete before I go—a difficult task as I am always tinkering at the last minute. So I better get back to work. Hope to see you in Amsterdam (or Lisbon!).

By the way, did you hear that MyHeritage DNA now offers both ancestry AND health data components? Read more here.
