MyHeritage adds huge database

Daniel Horowitz, Chief Genealogist with MyHeritage.com, sent information that they have just added 815 million US Public Records to their SuperSearch. "They cover the last five decades, starting from 1970 and includes information on the generations born after the 1940 census, filling a significant gap and providing important coverage of the USA for genealogists."
While I don't usually cover US records on the blog this is such a large dataset, and so recent, it may be useful for strays.
Mentioning it also gives me another excuse to plug the OGS conference, May 1-4 in St Catharines, where Daniel will be a speaker and on the social media panel I'll be chairing first thing Satirday morning - also to be available remotely.
