Default My Heritage - Theory of Family Relativity

Just seen this on My Heritage when I went to look at my latest DNA matches:

Theory of Family Relativity™NEW
MyHeritage has found theories that may explain how you and some of your DNA Matches are related. Then there is a "View theories" button.

I suppose the various sites are bringing in their new features this week because of Rootstech.

Have to say I feel rather underwhelmed by this one compared to ancestry's new feature, as it has only come up with a "theory" for one person, and nothing happened when I clicked the "view theory" button for that match. Off to try in another browser...

This seems pretty similar in idea to the new features on ancestry, but it makes it clearer where exactly they have got all the connections between the trees from. But since I only have one "theory" and it is based on someone's 2xg-grandfather being my 2xg-uncle who died at the age of one year old, not very impressed!

They have updated this recently, so if you check back you may find you have more "theories" than you did before. I have four now, and three of them look likely to be correct.

I have eight now. Three are correct the others seem to be offering me alternative 2xgt grandparents but I can't check their reasoning as I don't have a sub …..

What are the new features on ancestry? I've not looked at it for a while. I've been trying to fix my tree, make sure it is properly sourced etc.

Toni, it would be better to ask about that on a separate thread as this one is about My Heritage.
