Re: are there benefits of the My Heritage site over Ancestry #general

Although there are times when I've found incorrect trees, overall I have found My Heritage to be very helpful. 99% of the time the record matches I find are correct. Rarely do I get records from Family Tree (the Mormon site). Most of the records I've found are ones that I would not be able to get for free. Using My Heritage, I've contacted several cousins who did extensive research before me and were able to pass that information along to me. I would have a lot more brick walls than I currently have if it wasn't for them. I've also found a lot of photos of family members and historical information about some well-known ones. My mom and I have been doing this together - she longer than I have - and I find a lot more information that she does. She's always asking me, "Where did you find this?" and most of the time I've found it from records on My Heritage. She uses Ancestry.
