What is Mocavo?

What is Mocavo?

Founded in 2011 as a family history search engine, Mocavo established itself very quickly as one to watch in the world of genealogy. In June 2011, just three months after launch, Family Tree Magazine named Mocavo as one of the best 101 genealogy websites of the year. This growth continued, as Mocavo launched a Free Yearbook Collection and worked with users to publish hundreds of new records and archives every day. Now, by absorbing Mocavo, Findmypast has created a single experience for our US customers in a move that aims to deliver a more focused, efficient and comprehensive service to US family historians.

What’s next?

You don’t need to do anything just now. We're hard at work bringing the two sites together and we'll be in touch with specific information about your account once the migration has taken place, with some how-to guides that will help make the most of the new experience.

Existing Gold/Silver Mocavo subscribers: Your existing subscription will be migrated to FMP and when this expires, you will be given an additional 90 days to enjoy Findmypast. You can be assured that your payments will remain unchanged for your current subscription. If you hold a Findmypast subscription too, we will make the necessary adjustments to your two accounts.

Non-Subscribers (Basic): We will either merge your account with your Findmypast profile, or create a new one if you're not currently registered with Findmypast. If you have a Findmypast subscription, this will continue without any disruption. We will also be giving you 30 days free access to Findmypast.

If we've missed anything, you can find it on our Mocavo FAQs page, or by emailing us at support@findmypast.com
