Arrow MyHeritage - advanced features free for DNA uploaded this week

For a very limited time, MyHeritage are offering "no unlock fee for advanced DNA features" when you copy your raw DNA data from other sites such as Ancestry to their site. Details on here:

https://www.myheritage.com/dna/uploa...nel=dna+upload

and more here:

https://dna-explained.com/2019/12/12...BU2K_uTTiQs4E0

So if you haven't already downloaded your raw DNA file from Ancestry (or other site) and uploaded it to MyHeritage, this is the perfect time to do it. You may well find DNA matches who don't appear on Ancestry. I recently had a new DNA match on MyHeritage which helped me figure out a certain branch of my tree so would definitely recommend it.

Please remind me re privacy on MyHeritage?

I don't have descendants, but do have family members who wouldn't want our shared DNA information available elsewhere.

You don't have to upload a tree, no, but it can help people figure out how they might be related to you if you do. For a free account, you have a limit of 250 people in your tree, though, so I created a special version of my tree with just my direct ancestors on it and only a few generations for that site.

Thanks Kite, I've recently made a direct line tree so will use that.

For a free a/c do you have to give card details, then cancel?

Not as far as I know, but if there is a free trial of the whole site, I would imagine you would have to do so for that.
