Groups Feature on MyHeritage?
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 16:41 BST (UK) »
Afternoon

Can someone please confirm if there is a custom grouping tool at MyHeritage like AncestryDNA has?

At Ancestry when you review your DNA matches, there are numerous filtering options at the top of the screen including reviewing Unviewed matches but also being able to create custom groups and attach them to matches, which is useful for identifying matches on a particular branch together or grouping a cluster of matches who's relationship is yet to be determined.

At MyHeritage, which has several filtering options when reviewing matches, there doesn’t appear to be the option to create custom groups. Yes there is the option to add a custom note on each match, and there is the AutoCluster tool for grouping matches together, but if you want to review just the matches that have not been looked at yet, or those from a particular branch/group there doesn’t appear to be an effective way of doing this.

MyHeritage gives you suggestions of a range of relationships that might fit a match of that size. A good way to get a better understanding of the possible relationships is to put the total number of cM into the shared cM tool at DNA Painter. This will show a visual representation of relationships which could be possible and tell you the probability of each.
