MyHeritage has announced that DNA files uploaded this week, through October 8th, will receive all DNA tools and features, free, forever. This means no unlock fee, not today, not next month, not next year, not ever.
The DNA file upload, matching, and basic DNA features are always free. Normally, unlocking the advanced tools costs $29 – but not now. All DNA features, including advanced ones, are free if you upload this week.
It’s always a good thing to fish in multiple genetic ponds. You’re sure to match some of the 7.3 million testers at MyHeritage. In my case, I have more than 16,600 matches, many of whom are found nowhere else. That’s true for my European ancestral lineages and some US cousins who tested there and not elsewhere, including two close matches.
When you upload, you’ll receive these tools:
- DNA matches
- Shared matches
- cM Explainer – Relationship predictions
- Chromosome Browser
- Theories of Family Relativity
- Ethnicity estimates including 2144 geographic regions
- Genetic Groups
- Shared ancestral places
- Shared surnames
- Match labels
- Family trees and pedigree charts of your matches
What a great value!
