My Heritage special offer - no unlock fee for uploaded results
« on: Wednesday 24 February 21 16:58 GMT (UK) »
Thanks to Romilly for this

"Special promotion: all advanced DNA features are free forever for DNA data uploaded this week!  Expires February 28, 2021"

You need to select "upload DNA data" on MyHeritage.com to see the offer.  If you've previously uploaded the same kit it appears they can tell.  I deleted my earlier upload and it seems to have gone through OK but I won't know for certain till they finish processing in 5-7 days.

Presumably they didn't get the uptake that they were hoping! MyHeritage does have a number of advantages over, for example, Ancestry, in particular, chromosome browser, auto clustering, no shared match size cut off, ability to filter by country of residence or ethnicity of match.

It was so busy on that Site last night, that I could only get on intermittently!
And I seem to have lots of new matches on there today....

I'm not surprised as they are offering this excellent freebie. People are probably playing with the new animating tool too.

I don't have Ancestry to compare, but I quite like My Heritage - it's easy to use, and has loads of useful features. I'm surprised that Ancestry is so popular considering it's limitations. Must be all that advertising that has snared them millions of customers.  :)

The new animating tool on My Heritage is amazing!

I animated a photo of my late Father last night. He died in 1957, and I can barely remember him, and so it was quite something for me...
