Why should I upload my raw DNA data to MyHeritage?

Inporting your autosomal DNA test results to MyHeritage provides you with two types of results:

An Ethnicity Estimate - a comprehensive breakdown of your unique DNA composition. You will discover where your heritage originated from and how much each ethnicity is part of your ancestral origins, and even view the main life events of your direct ancestors on the Ethnicity map.

For more information about the Ancestral Ethnicity feature, please visit: What is the MyHeritage Ethnicity Estimate?

DNA Matches - This technology compares data from autosomal DNA tests results and family trees to identify matches between users that share genetic sequences and indicate a family relationship. For further details, please read the following:  What kind of data can I get from DNA Matches?
