Kindo acquired by MyHeritage

In a press release yesterday, MyHeritage announced it has acquired Kindo.

The Kindo email announcing this said: “We believe that we are much stronger together. The nice and simple web site that you’ve liked with Kindo becomes so much more powerful, if it’s combined with MyHeritage’s technologies for organizing family photos and do family research – like matching of family trees, the genealogy search engine or the huge repertoire of family tree data. The Kindo family will still be there for you, and the Kindo site will still be available for our current users, but the new common team will focus on improving the much bigger MyHeritage platform. We have tried out MyHeritage ourselves and were quite excited. Gareth for example found dozens of new relatives, when he plugged his Kindo tree into the MyHeritage databases.”

Founded in 2007, London-based Kindo was a genealogy-focused social networking site. On Kindo users built genealogy treesĀ  and stayed in touch with their loved ones. Kindo was available in 15 different languages with Arabic, Chinese, Turkish and Russian being exotic examples.
