GenCircles Merges with MyHeritage

by Steve, Sunday, December 23, 2007
Pearl Street Software, maker of GenCircles and Family Tree Legends, has merged with MyHeritage.com, recently named one of the best genealogy Websites of the year 2007 by Family Tree Magazine. The first move from this merger is that Family Tree Legends (a genealogy software) and GenCircles have been made 100% free!

The merger is also bringing the "Smart Matching" technology free for GenCircles and MyHeritage users. Smart Matching is a specialized genealogy technology developed by Pearl Street Software and further advanced by MyHeritage, to connect family trees. It works by comparing millions of names, facts and tree connections - intelligently. When two family trees are connected, both their owners are informed, and benefit from the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other.

They advanced the Smart Matching technology into what they call, "Smart Matching 2.0", which covers spelling and phonetic variations, understands nicknames and name synonyms and deals better with ethnic variations.

I've found that on GenCircles, the feedback link redirects you to their FAQ page instead of actually being able to contact someone with problems. If you need help and need further assitance on GenCircles, you are really SOL (so to speak.)

Another problem I ran into on My Heritage was that the color options on its front page prohibit my computer from viewing it optimally. ( I have a very low resolution.) In addition to this small problem, when I attempt to create a new page, oftentimes the page duplicates! So I have to go back and delete the duplicate page. My Heritage has issues with Mozilla / Firefox browser and I have to use Internet Explorer in order to create pages. It is rather cumbersome and annoying to have to do that because I'm so fond of Mozilla / Firefox.
