Daniel Horowitz, chief genealogy officer and translation manager for the popular web site MyHeritage (www.myheritage.com), recently spoke at a special session of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Palm Beach County.
Horowitz’s presentation on “Planting a Family Tree on Line” focused on his company’s free software program, Family Tree Builder.
He described the company’s partnership with Billion Graves, the world’s largest resource for searchable cemetery data, which he called an invaluable source of information found on burial sites around the world.
The Palm Beach County chapter is one of the largest and most active sources of Jewish genealogical research in the country. The chapter’s meetings take place once a month at the South County Civic Center on Jog Road.
