Adding New DNA to another site
« on: Wednesday 25 January 23 03:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi , Yes How do I get the Ancestry DNA Results off their site so I can upload that to My Heritage. 

I can't see anything that says How to....  maybe I am blind!

You do it via My Heritage:
https://www.myheritage.com/dna/upload

You’ll get more from the site if you pay the fee to unlock the extra features.

Good luck

I misunderstood. I thought you tested with Ancestry and wanted to upload your raw data from Ancestry to My Heritage.

If you did not test with My Heritage once you upload your raw data to My Heritage, you will be able to see any matches for free.

If you want access to other (useful) features there is a cost to “unlock” those features. Details and costs involved will be on the website somewhere.

I would definitely not recommend MyHeritage.
It found hundreds of matches for me, none with known cousins.
Where a name was the same as found by Ancestry or GEDmatch, the number of cM was considerably greater.
Most of the supposed matches were in the USA or other parts of the world where I would not expect them.  Many of the names looked Jewish.  I know it's an Israeli company, but I am not aware of having any Jewish connections anywhere in my extensive tree.

I conclude that the results are faulty.  It looks as though the bogus and inflated matches are a ploy to encourage people to pay a subscription.

You don’t need a subscription to view DNA matches, and useful tools like the chromosome browser, and auto cluster on My Heritage.

Yes, they are an Israeli company so high numbers of Jewish and lower “others” therefore are to be expected - presumably more Jewish test with them.

Number of cMs shared between matches vary with each company. My relationship estimates have been fairly accurate despite any slight cM variations.

There seem to be faults/complaints/ about all of the DNA companies.

I’ve had some decent matches through My Heritage and find the site user friendly. Worth Essnell having a shot at it.  :)

I am certainly not a bagman for MyHeritage, but I think that you are being rather hard on them. I tested first with Ancestry then uploaded to MH. Both got my heritage about right and there are some identical matches on both sites. In each such case the cM is within single figure difference. The great feature that MH has is the list of shared matches after you scroll down the page for a specific match. On Ancestry you have to do that for yourself.

I also got lots of additional matches on MH after uploading my test results.

I very much doubt that being an Israeli company makes it more likely that you will get Jewish matches. If such matches are at a credible level e.g. above about 40cM, you probably need to get used to the idea that they are probably correct. Humans are a pretty mixed bunch if you go back far enough and the concept of ethnicity that far back is nonsense.
