About this webinar

In this session we will cover two main topics: 1) Brief background on the science of DNA testing – Whether you have already taken a DNA test or this is the first time you're hearing about it, we will start from the very beginning. We'll go over the basic terms of DNA testing and learn how DNA is passed down through generations, how and why individuals have shared DNA segments, and how we're able to estimate one's ethnic origins. 2) An overview of MyHeritage DNA – Our DNA Matching technology reveals the percentage of DNA you share with your matches, showing you how closely related you are. We will go over the various tools that are available on MyHeritage, such as Theory of Family Relativity, Shared ancestral surnames and places, Shared DNA Matches, AutoClusters, and more, to help you make the most of your results.
