Triangulating DNA With MyHeritage

This weekend at Rootstech MyHeritage introduced a new option to view your DNA matches.

To get started (assuming you have already uploaded your DNA for FREE to their site) hover over the DNA tab at the top of the page and select Chromosome Browser.Screen_Shot_2018-03-04_at_11_33_04_AM

You will get to this page where you can start selecting your matches. Once you make a selection they will be added to the top bar. You can select up to seven people for comparison.Screen_Shot_2018-03-04_at_11_33_58_AM

Your chromosomes laid out in a graph style. If your matches also match each other at the same location MyHeritage will highlight this for you by circling it.

*Please take note that MyHeritage has the default set at 2 cM, you will want to change this to 8 cM to get a clearer picture and eliminate noise created by those smalled segment matches.Screen_Shot_2018-03-04_at_11_30_56_AM_1

These are great new tools and I hope more of the testing companies will get on board with offering more options for exploring our DNA matches.

Well done My Heritage!
