The Jewish Chronicle added to MyHeritage SuperSearch

The Jewish Chronicle, the world's oldest continually published Jewish newspaper dating back to 1841, is now available as a collection on for searching on MyHeritage.com. Quoting from an email from Daniel Horowitz, Chief Genealogist and Translation Manager,
The Jewish Chronicle includes articles, stories, and details of births, marriages and deaths that occurred within the British Jewish community, for the last 173 years. Many people with Jewish roots or family will have had ancestors that resided in the UK or passed through before moving on to the USA, Canada, and other countries. 
In addition, we are adding soon, millions of records from a variety of Jewish organizations like the Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) databases and Avelim, containing searchable death notices from Israel.
The press release goes on to state:
“We're delighted to offer these unique collections, that have never been offered on commercial family history mega-sites before”, said Russ Wilding, Chief Content Officer of MyHeritage. “The Jewish Chronicle is an extremely social publication, capturing the lives of individuals and families who lived in the UK and beyond. Anyone with Jewish ancestors who lived in the UK is bound to make fascinating discoveries.”

The new collections will be available for searching via SuperSearch, MyHeritage’s search engine which contains billions of historical records. MyHeritage users enjoy highly accurate matching technologies that automatically match relevant newspaper articles and records with their family trees, notifying users whenever relevant information is found.
