Update: More Information About the new Announcement of MyHeritage DNA

Following Monday’s launch of MyHeritage DNA (see the announcement at https://goo.gl/lpYyKh), many questions were asked about the new service. MyHeritage’s Founder and CEO, Gilad Japhet, has posted answers to these questions in the MyHeritage Blog.

You can read Gilad’s answers at http://blog.myheritage.com/2016/11/myheritage-dna-your-questions-answered.

Thanks MyHeritage. I have already uploaded my raw data, and urge others to do so as well. Everyone needs to notice that a chromosome browser – an absolute necessity – is promised soon by MyHeritage. They actually want to help their customers use the DNA information, unlike Ancestry who just want to sell more kits and provide a few worthless smoke and mirrors “tools”.


I have been trying to order my kit and keep getting “Not available in your country” (I live in the State of Washington). Leland Meiztler has been in contact with MyHeritage on my behalf and the techies are researching. Anyone else having a problem like this?
