Genealogy website MyHeritage has launched MyHeritage Library Edition, a version of the site libraries can subscribe to and make available free to their patrons.

Library patrons will be able to access MyHeritage Library Edition from home over the internet, according to the press release. (Usually, the way this works is the user clicks a link on the library’s website and logs in with a library card number.)

The service will give library patrons access to the indexed and digitized records, digitized photos and family trees on MyHeritage.com, as well as the trees on Geni.com. Those include birth, death and marriage records from 48 countries; US and UK censuses; immigration and military records; US public records; and more than 1.5 billion family tree profiles. Content MyHeritage licenses from Tributes.com, WikiTree, BillionGraves and CanadianHeadstones.com also will be available.

The MyHeritage Library Edition interface will be available in 40 languages (the same as for MyHeritage.com).

EBSCO Information Services will distribute the service.
