The family network dynastree.com recently launched a new version, including a Turkish language version, and also a new feature – the extended search. It is now possible to use far more parameters to search for possible relatives and ancestors. The new parameters not only include more fields for names (birth name, second surname), but also fields for place of birth, death,
and residence. Moreover, both year of birth and year of death can now be used as search parameters, either as exact matches, or allowing deviations from the year specified.
Premium users can now use the new function to its full extent, and everyone can test it to see whether or not their search parameters did return any results. This upgrade allows users to find matches even if only a limited amount of data is known, it greatly improves the possibility to make full use of dynastree’s database of more than 90 million profiles from Europe, Russia, and the Americas.
