About this webinar

Author and speaker Richard Hill, founder of the DNAFavorites.com website, will review his ten favorite DNA features included with the MyHeritage DNA test. He will show how these features support the basic functions of genetic genealogy, including (1) finding previously unknown relatives, (2) identifying the common ancestors responsible for our genetic matches, and (3) estimating the mix of ethnicities inherited from our ancestors. Using examples from his personal account, Richard will demonstrate these features and show how they can be used productively by genealogists, adoptees, and anyone curious about their family history or ethnic background.

    Would be very helpful to have definitions of some of the subjects [ Theory of family relativity ] and how to achieve a free upload on MyHeritage . Also a better explanation of Ethnicity or a detailed definition of it -with several examples.

    Very informative and well presented – I have recently started using My Heritage after uploading my DNA results from Ancestry. This talk has given me a road map on how to use the site effectively. Thankyou Richard!

    The pacing of the presentation was EXCELENT! It made it easy to comprehend and stay with him. I personally was helped by the fact that I very recently watched the New Developments of MyHeritage DNA. I reted it #4 rather than #5 because in a few spots the explanation was not enough to make the verbal comments click in my brain. I enjoyed this presentation and the presenter’s logical order.

    Excellent presentation. Found out a lot of new information that I did not know before that was available on My Heritage. I plan to check it out on the website and relisten to the presentation.
