MyHeritage Genealogy and DNA Results Described on Fox News

Genealogy and especially using DNA in genealogy research received a lot of positive publicity on American television yesterday morning. The 3 hosts of the popular morning show, Fox & Friends, were presented with their DNA ethnicity results supplied by MyHeritage, augmented by genealogy research also performed by the company.

The three hosts’ experiences also may be seen in online videos that you can watch now:

My concern is that MyHeritage isn’t yet offering chromosome matching tools. If they are trying to say that sharing DNA, and a possible common ancestor on both trees, has any relevance, they are absolutely wrong. It is interesting but without triangulation it means nothing. I have NO provable matches on either Ancestry DNA or MyHeritage DNA. I have possible matches, and a few probable matches, but particularly beyond a 2nd cousin, without a chromosome browser and additional matches to triangulate, I have no proof.

I have wandered down enough wrong paths myself to learn this lesson well.
