Introducing our new global initiative — Tribal Quest — to record the family histories of tribal people living in remote locations and to preserve their stories for future generations.
PRO BONO INITIATIVES
One of our driving forces as a company is to do good, and we place particular emphasis on doing pro bono projects worldwide.
Tribal Quest is a MyHeritage pro bono project for documenting the family stories of tribal communities around the world. We’re helping tribes who have no access to technology, to preserve their family history for their future generations.
DNA Quest is a pro bono global initiative to help adoptees and their birth families reunite through DNA testing. MyHeritage has donated 15,000 MyHeritage DNA kits, worth more than one million dollars, to adoptees and family members from around the world.
The Secret of Erikoussa
MyHeritage has conducted extensive research on the island of Corfu in Greece. Its highlight was the reunion of the descendants of a Jewish family hidden during WWII on Ereikoussa, a tiny island north of Corfu, and descendants of the courageous Greek Islanders who risked their lives to save this family. We’ve uncovered many emotional side stories on our journey.
Restitution of Looted Assets
MyHeritage discovered heirs for unclaimed assets confiscated during WWII and returned looted art to its rightful owners.
At MyHeritage, we often reach out to our users and help them make life-changing family history discoveries.
MyHeritage launched a global initiative, together with BillionGraves, to digitally preserve the world’s cemeteries because of the key role that gravestones play in family history and in society in general.
