What can I learn from a DNA test?
MyHeritage DNA provides two fascinating types of results:
Ethnicity Estimate: A percentage breakdown of your ancestral background, showing your ancestors' origins from among 42 ethnicities, including Irish, Italian, North African, Japanese, East Asian, and many others. MyHeritage has the largest pool of supported ethnicities in the industry.
DNA Matching: This powerful feature uses your DNA to help you find new relatives from all around the world. Your matches, from both your mother's and father's side, will include information about your shared genetic sequences, and identify your estimated relationship.
Are there any extra costs involved in seeing my results?
No. The cost of your DNA kit already covers your Ethnicity Estimate and the DNA Matching service.
What are the benefits of testing other family members?
Purchasing DNA kits for additional family members is recommended. Testing one or both parents allows you to obtain additional information about your DNA Matches. For example, you'll be able to learn whether a match is paternal or maternal. Because of the nature of genetic inheritance, your siblings may get different ethnicity results than you. Comparing your results can help you learn even more about your ancestry.
How is my privacy protected?
Our U.S.-based DNA lab is CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited, adhering to the strictest standards of privacy. Your account and personal details are secured by multiple layers of encryption. We do not share results with any third parties.
From the manufacturer
MyHeritage DNA Kit
Your ethnicity estimate is a breakdown of ethnic regions based on the DNA that you’ve inherited from your ancestors. MyHeritage analyzes your ancestral roots in great depth to provide you with the most diverse percentage-based ethnicity breakdown, which includes 42 different ethnicities from around the world — more than any other DNA test. Your results are presented in an original, engaging format that’s fun to watch and share. Perhaps your ethnicity breakdown is exactly as you thought — or maybe you’ll discover unexpected surprises.
MyHeritage DNA finds you new relatives, by matching your DNA to the DNA of others. You are likely to discover new relatives you’ve never met before! Our DNA Matching technology reveals the percentage of DNA you share with your matches, showing you just how closely related you are. You can connect with your newly found relatives to learn more about your family and discover shared ancestors. MyHeritage offers the best tools, such as the One-to-Many Chromosome Browser, to help you determine exactly how you are related to your DNA Matches and make the most of your new discoveries.
Family Tree Integration
MyHeritage seamlessly integrates DNA results with online family trees, allowing you to make incredible new discoveries that would not be possible otherwise. MyHeritage is the leading destination for global family history research thanks to the integration of its powerful DNA test with a robust genealogical platform that contains 9 billion historical records, offering both free and paid subscription options.

What will I learn?
MyHeritage DNA reveals your ancestors' origins from among 42 ethnicities, including Scottish Irish and Welsh, Italian, Japanese, and many others. Your full ethnicity percentage breakdown is presented in a beautiful, interactive 3D map along with original tunes of your ancestors’ ethnic regions — making it fun to watch and perfect for sharing on social media.
Along with your Ethnicity Estimate, you will also receive a constantly updated list of DNA Matches from around the world — people whose DNA matches yours and are related to you. Your matches, from both your mother’s and father’s side, will include information about your shared genetic sequences, and identify your estimated relationship. As MyHeritage DNA is the market leader in Europe, you will have better chances of getting DNA Matches and finding relatives in Europe than with any other DNA service.
Are there extra costs?
Your kit payment covers your Ethnicity Estimate and DNA Matches. You can contact your DNA Matches for free and access the MyHeritage One-to-Many Chromosome Browser for free. Viewing shared ancestral surnames is also free.
Viewing family trees of your DNA Matches or accessing the 9 billion historical records that are found on MyHeritage is optional and requires a paid subscription plan. Some advanced features in the DNA Match review also require a subscription, such as viewing matches and ethnicities that you share with your DNA Matches.
Should I test family members?
Yes. Purchasing MyHeritage DNA kits for additional family members is recommended. Testing one or both parents allows you to obtain additional information about your DNA Matches. For example, you’ll be able to find out whether any match is from your mother’s or father’s side. Because genetic inheritance is random, your brothers and sisters may get different ethnicity results than you do, and it is fascinating and fun to compare your results.
What type of sample is needed?
The MyHeritage DNA test kit is a simple cheek swab — no spit or blood is necessary. To collect your sample, you simply scrape the inside of your cheek with a swab for about 45 seconds. You then place the swab into a vial and mail it to our U.S.-based DNA lab for analysis.

El secuenciar nuestro ADN es bastante caro. Estas empresas no secuencian, si no que buscan marcadores o ausencias de marcadores de otros ya secuenciados (más rápido y barato). Su virtud (precio) es su defecto. Al estipular unos marcadores genéticos propios, esta compañia los ha orientado a un público estadounidense. ¿que quiere decir? que para que a un yanki le salga que tiene ascendencia española, se ha generalizado el subgrupo "íberico".
Para nosotros, ese "íberico" no tiene ningún valor, puesto que nuestra ascendencia es más compleja y no sale reflejada en estos test's. Si eres español, vas a ver como tus marcadores son mayoritariamente iberico. Yo tengo rasgos claramente nortafricanos, pero en mi secuencia solo me aparece un 2'6% nortafricana y un 90% iberico. ¿quiere decir esto que la mayoria de mis ancestros son iberos? Ni mucho menos, lo que quiere decir el subgrupo "iberico" es mucho mas divisible y se ha simplificado para el mercado yanki.
En cuanto a buscadores de parientes: El sistema es un poco malo y casi privatizado. Si quieres accecer a determinada información, tienes que pagar una cuota anual (cuando estas cosas en 15 dias ya las tendrias solucionadas, pero te obligan a contratar un año). La gente que coincide contigo geneticamente es muy posible que haya hecho el test, lo haya visto, y no se vaya a meter en la cuenta nunca mas, por lo que el contactar con ellos es una tarea complicada.
El peligro: Estas empresas no te ofrecen nada de privacidad. Se han dado casos (y muchos) de empresas que mas tarde han vendido todos sus datos a empresas farmaceuticas (con estos entregamos nuestro ADN, y de ahí, se puede extraer mucha informacion, como las posibilidades de desarrollar diabetes, problemas de corazon, etc... informaciones muy jugosas para gente que se dedica a vender fármacos). El precio de este test, es básicamente a precio de coste. El negocio no lo están haciendo al vender los test, si no al crear un big data. Pensar dos veces antes de comprar. A mi, no me mereció la pena.
" There will be a delay by up to one month. We are currently upgrading the chip used for DNA analysis, to a new and more advanced version. We are conducting the transition to the new chip with great care and diligence in order to provide you the most accurate results. We expect to renew delivery of results in 3 more weeks and it will take us 3 additional weeks to consume the backlog, so your results are expected to be available within 3–6 weeks.
We apologize for the delay and are doing our best to expedite the process. We will notify you by email as soon as the results are available. You can track the status of the DNA kit at any time.

When I logged on to the track it to my extreme annoyance the processing of my mums DNA test had moved back from stage 5 to stage 3 'DNA Extraction Stage' PLEASE can someone explain to me how after telling us you had extracted the DNA and you were processing the raw data to pushing us back to DNA Extraction Stage. I had intended to buy a tester kit for my self and other family members but after this POOR experience that no longer a desire of mine, one very disappointed customer and deeply upset 82 year old mother supports this !!!
Ansonsten sehr zu empfehlen und ein prima Weihnachts Geschenk.
I tried different tests and all are VERY different in the results
Lack of scientific approach
My kid could to better with am haematological analysis
