MyHeritage Releases Major Updates and Improvements
MyHeritage DNA Matching
If you’re not familiar with MyHeritage’s DNA Matching program, it’s a system that compares DNA results in the MyHeritage database to each other, whether the DNA is from a MyHeritage kit or is uploaded to their site from your previous test. This comparison allow users to find other individuals they share DNA segments with, and helps explain how these individuals are related. To date, MyHeritage’s database contains DNA results for 1.o75 million people, and their system updates your matches daily, looking for new matches in the system. Users are notified by a weekly email about the best new matches found in the system that week…
They’re also the only one of the 3 largest DNA test services that supports DNA result upload – and it’s free. If you’ve not taken advantage of this, we recommend you head over to their website and upload your previous results from other companies.
