MyHeritage Added More Records to its Dutch Collections



MyHeritage announced the publication on MyHeritage Super Search of seven large and significant historical record collections from the Netherlands. These collections have been added to their existing collection of Dutch records.

The new collections total over 116 million records, cover about five centuries and fascinating periods in Dutch history.
