Hopefully the following will offer a bit of reassurance to those concerned
with MyHeritage buying out Millenia and the data they have recorded in
their Legacy databases. Please remember that MyHeritage is not the ONLY auto
data search link offered in Legacy 9, nor is that auto search feature unique
in genealogy software.
First off, Legacy also links to and searches automatically at the following
genealogical data archives in Version 9:
Other genealogy software also use auto search:
1 - Family Tree Maker
* Ancestry (only if tree synced between FTM to Ancestry)
2 - RootsMagic
* Ancestry (only if tree synced between RootsMagic to Ancestry)
3 - Family Historian
That searching is described as 'Automatic Internet Data Matching". Legacy's
webinars offered a presentation (still free viewing) titled - "Hands-On with
Legacy Hints: Using MyHeritage Record Matches and Smart Matches" at the
following link (https://familytreewebinars.com/download.php?webinar_id=635}.
This webinar should offer a some reassurance.
Family Historian also offered a description (written) titled "What is
Automatic Internet Data Matching?" found at the following link
(http://www.family-historian.co.uk/aidm). This description identifies how a
FH database is searched and what happens to the information used in that
Given the amount of misinformation and concerns appearing in the list I hope
this information is helpful.
