Follow these instruction to create your free MyHeritage account:

  • Log in to FamilySearch.org

(If you don’t already have an account with FamilySearch.org, you’ll need to create one using your LDS membership number. If you don’t know your membership member you can ask for it from a church clerk or member of the bishopric.)

  • Select “Get Help” in the upper right corner
  • Select “Help Center” in the left column of the pop-up
  • Select “Partners” in the icon of shaking hands
  • Select “Our Partners”
  • Select “MyHeritage”
  • Select “Create Your Free MyHeritage Account”

FamilySearch.org will verify you have an LDS membership number and you’ll see a new page that says “You Qualify for a FREE Account on MyHeritage” and you’ll be given the option to create a free MyHeritage account.

If you have never had a MyHeritage account

  • Select “Create Your Free MyHeritage Account”

If you have a paid account or a free trial

  • Select “Sign in to connect your account”

This will connect your current/past account to your new free membership. You won’t be reimbursed for what you’ve already paid but you won’t be billed for future payments.

You can now create a new login and password for your MyHeritage account that will be separate from your login and password for your FamilySearch account.

If you are not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you can create a free FamilySearch.org account and enjoy their free tree service, free records searches, attachable record hints and research suggestions, but you will not be given the free partner accounts such as MyHeritage.com, Ancestry.com, findmypast.com, etc.
