Dear Friends,

The news was released today: MyHeritage.com acquires yet another company – making this its sixth acquisition so far. This is a good sign of how the company’s global tech leadership and growth of its family history services is making it not only ‘one to watch’ as a start-up - but a massive force within the genealogy world.

MyHeritage is buying the industry’s primary backup service for genealogists – this is the first backup of its kind, specifically designed for protecting family tree data. It includes the world’s most experienced genealogists as its customers and has so far backed-up a whopping 9 terabytes of data!

Cliff Shaw, Founder and CEO of BackupMyTree is moving its focus towards its new venture, Mocavo.com. MyHeritage.com is the ideal home for BackupMyTree – we have massive resources to support it and share the common mission of preserving family history.

Feel free to reveal this great news to your readers, find more information and images attached, and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Daniel Horowitz
Chief Genealogist
