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.
