Earlier this year the I reported on the JewishGen Discussion Group that MyHeritage had purchased a French genealogy company. They have now announced that they signed agreements to acquire 90.91% of the share capital and 89.11% of the voting rights of Filae.


This marks the 12th acquisition by MyHeritage.  Filae’s existing team will be maintained and strengthened, based in its current Paris office, and the company will continue to work independently.


Following the acquisition, the exclusive historical record collections housed on Filae, comprising more than one billion records, will be loaded into MyHeritage and made accessible to MyHeritage users, creating new genealogical discovery opportunities for individuals around the world with French roots.


Filae will remain a French company based in Paris and will continue to operate autonomously. Filae’s founder, Toussaint Roze, will continue to manage the company and its operations will continue uninterrupted. The scope of services available to current subscribers on Filae will remain unchanged.
