Historical Database Focus

MyHeritage Library Edition features a focus on people-based records, which contain information about both everyday people and prominent individuals across societies and periods of time. This emphasis, plus the strength of the index, enables scholars to access information both about specialized topics (regions, time periods) as well as social, cultural, and political trends, with a wide scope. Location and keyword search options enable the researcher to directly access information about a specific region or topic.
