As a researcher for over 55 years and member of several genealogical sites and organizations I do no recommend this site unless you subscribe to more than the basic subscription.

"Matches" sent to you (as a member) are as accurate as the information you provide on your family tree information. However, with a basic membership (which is reasonably priced) you only get an individual match and when you click on that match to view the "add'l content" it contains you must upgrade to a higher level membership to see that information/documentation.

Total sham. Documentation and family group information is not available with a basic subscription. In addition they hound you with e-mails. A pop-up home page appears on your computer without you requesting it.

In summary, I would not recommend My Heritage to a friend.
