I believe that more Israelis use MyHeritage for family trees. A couple of years ago, I was able to find a branch of cousins which was amazing....my sister then visited them when she went to Israel. AND, last year, someone from Israel found me.... a descendant of my great-grandfather! I ended up learning that after my great-grandmother passed away young after having 4 children, my great-grandfather remarried and had many more children. So if you follow this, my grandmother had a lot of half-siblings that my cousins, my one surviving uncle and I never knew of.
This year, I ended up getting a multi-year full contract with MyHeritage which reduced the "yearly" fee to make it worthwhile. Because of this, I started listening to several of the webinars via Facebook and other (Ask the Expert) so I am learning to take advantage of all that MyHeritage has to offer....it is a lot more than I originally thought.
All the best in whatever path you choose.
