    MyHeritage French records

    Email sent to us - I don't usually post these but if you have a records sub to the site, this may be interesting:

    We’re happy to announce that we’ve just published a huge treasure trove of 463 million historical records from France in 5 collections, which provide the most comprehensive coverage available for birth, marriage, and death records from France in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.
    When MyHeritage acquired Filae — a leading genealogy service in France — two months ago, we promised that Filae’s valuable and exclusive content would soon become available on MyHeritage. This release constitutes a significant portion of the historical record content on Filae; many of the records are exclusive and not available on other commercial sites.

    The collections in this release include:

    All of them include a high-quality index of transcribed records and beautifully scanned images of the original documents.

    This impressive compilation is just the beginning of our work with Filae to make historical records from France easily accessible to genealogists all over the world… so stay tuned!

    I encourage you to check out the new collections and spread the word among your friends, family, and followers. Here’s a link to our blog post with more details on the collections. Feel free to use the above graphic on your blog and/or social media.

    Enjoy,

    I do wonder how they will handle this new ownership. Not a popular move, and one wonders about the independance of filae. Myheritage seems to be viewed as bad as ancestry when it comes to transcriptions Etc.

    I would subscribe directly to filae to be honest.

      Any site can have issues with transcriptions.
      It would certainly be far cheaper with the monthly option and probably easier to get out later of as well, hence my suggestion about it being useful for those who already have a sub to MyHeritage! I have edited my post to emphasise this.

        I thought MyHeritage’s original publicity on the sale said that the two companies would be run as separate entities so I was surprised to find MH subscribers now have access to Filae records.
        Am I mixing up this acquistion with a recent statement issued by ancestry or FMP ?

          You can re-read all about it by reading the links in the blog via the link in the first post.

            Ancestry acquired geneanet, is that what you were thinking of?

            filae and geneanet are the only two sites that specialise in french records, and geneanet had shares and a partnership in filae. But geneanet couldn't afford to buy filae, so myheritage got them.

            it's seen as the death of independant french genealogy, ancestry and myheritage have poor reputations in europe.

              That’s the one.
