I'm having major problems with My Heritage
I bought a premium subscription and am now having problems accessing anything

I am seriously thinking of cancelling my site subscription.  Some of the record sets are good. Perhaps I'll keep the data subscription and just delete my tree

I also got a DNA test from them.  It was the cheapest out there!

I've got some dna matches but my tree and my dna are not linked so I can't match surnames between their tree and mine (because my tree of 2000+ people doesn't exist apparently, they are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it)

I've uploaded my data to gedmatch but am struggling to understand it all. I've found all sorts of information and guides, but I'm still very lost. I'm going to try familytreedna now

This is hard work!!
I dont understand very much when it comes to Gedmatch either but at least I upped my DNA matches from 34 to 2000 with Gedmatch now I just need the courage to contact people on Gedmatch

I didn't know that.  We know the connection (it's only a couple of generations back).

Yes, you will still get genuine matches.

Do you have to have a subscription to get your raw data? Have registered and done the test, got the Ethnicity estimate.

Don't panic, found out how.

FamilyTreeDNA is now accepting autosomal DNA transfers from MyHeritage.  I e-mailed the cousins this morning and one appeared as a new match at FtDNA this afternoon.

Would you be so kind as to PM me so we can discuss how you did this? I just received my test results this week from MyHeritage.

Thanks!

Hi Fogmoose, it's well hidden, but if you log into your MyHeritage account, go to "Manage DNA kits", on the right hand side are 3 dts, click on them and click on "Download DNA kit", follow the prompts and save to wherever you want. It's all in a zip file.
