Findmypast buys Mocavo

Findmypast-Mocavo logosFindmypast, the British family history company, announced today it has acquired Mocavo, a US genealogy company. Judging by the buzz on Facebook and Twitter, this could be a good union for genealogists. The news arrives less than a week after Findmypast announced it had purchased Origins.net.

In a joint news release, Findmypast and Mocavo said: “Together Findmypast and Mocavo will create one of the fastest growing global genealogy businesses. The two companies will provide customers with easier access and more relevant information to help add colour and depth to family history. Additionally, they both remain committed to delivering on Mocavo’s promise to provide free access to family history records on an individual database level forever. Toward that commitment, Findmypast is announcing today that the full indexes to the US Census from 1790 to 1940 are available for free at Mocavo.com.”
