This popular DNA testing kit allows you to discover your family origins and find previously unknown relatives. Here’s how it works: take the DNA test at home with the quick 2-minute cheek swab, then mail the sample in the provided envelope to the MyHeritage DNA lab. Your sample will undergo analysis in the lab and your results will be available on your secure online MyHeritage account in 3 to 4 weeks.
Each kit comes with:
- Ethnicity Estimate: MyHeritage analyses your ancestral roots in great depth to provide you with a diverse breakdown with percentages, which includes up to 42 different ethnicities from around the world.
- DNA Matching: MyHeritage matches your DNA to the DNA of others, so you can discover new relatives you’ve never met before. The service determines the percentage of DNA shared between people to reveal how closely related they are (for example, 2nd cousin). Advanced tools, such as the One-to-Many Chromosome Browser, allow users to trace their common ancestors to better understand exactly how they are related to each match.
- Family Tree Integration: DNA results are seamlessly integrated with MyHeritage’s online family trees. Users can make even more fascinating discoveries about their family history by building a rich family tree and utilising a collection of 9 billion historical records which offers free and paid subscription options.
- Private and Secure: Your account and personal data are protected and secured. All testing is carried out in MyHeritage’s world-leading CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory in the United States. When you test on MyHeritage, you are the sole owner of your DNA data. You can delete it at any time. Personal information provided to MyHeritage is never sold, licensed or shared with any third parties and MyHeritage will never sell or license DNA data to any third parties without your explicit consent.
