Comparing the “Big Four”

Do you ever wonder which online genealogy service is best? The “Big Four” are Ancestry, FamilySearch, findmypast and MyHeritage. 

Sunny Morton gave a presentation on this subject at RootsTech 2017, and her talk is available as a video. She compares the four companies on several factors:

  • Historical Records
  • User-Submitted Family Trees
  • DNA Profiles
  • Cost

She goes on to tell us what she likes best about each site as well as “what you should know” (i.e., possible negatives).

Really comprehensive and up-to-date! The only thing better would be to have the handouts Ms. Morton prepared for conference attendees.

It’ll be worth your time (one-hour-plus) to watch the RootsTech video:
