It looks like this may be due to a difference in the Genome Builds (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reference_genome#Human_reference_genome) used between the two tools. GEDMatch reports that they store data in Build 36 format (https://www.gedmatch.com/gedwiki/index.php?title=DNA_Upload). Louis Kessler noted that MyHeritage raw data is downloaded in Build 37 ...

I'm sure you know about the little mail icon on the top bar. If you click on that, it will bring up your inbox, which you can switch to your sent messages. You are correct that there is no search and that the messages are not linked to your match. Adding both of those would be excellent suggestions to make to MyHeritage. With hundreds or more of messages, ...

Unfortunately, the DNA companies imply way more accuracy to their estimates by including percentages to one decimal point. Let me rephrase your results as they should have been stated: My father is from 85% to 100% European (85% to 100% Ashkenazi, 0% to 10% Baltic, and 0% to 10% Italian), 0% to 10% West Asian, and 0% to 5% Central Asian. My mother is 80% to ...

My main software is Calico Pie's Family Historian 6, which contains among its many features the capability to print booklets. You can see some screenshots on the tour page. See the FHUG's Knowledge Base article: Report Content, Media, Format and Layout and other related articles in the wiki for some how-to articles. Calico Pie says the book creation ...

The results from this Ashkenazic Shared DNA Survey should be of interest to you: https://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com/2018/05/ashkenazic-shared-dna-survey-data-by.html?m=1 That 57.4 cM longest match is close to the average for second cousins in table 2, which is only for people with 100% Ashkenazic ancestry. Your father's 348.3 cM total shared cM is also ...

It is not all that simple to convert to an FTDNA file. There are a few things that might be tripping you up. From your example, you seem to indicate that the first data line in your tellmeGen file is for position 100177980 on chromosome 1. Check that the lines are ordered by chromosome and position number, and that lower positions are before higher ...

No. MyHeritage DNA does not currently have a way to view just the triangulated matches. You have to find them yourself, remembering that if you have even one extra person on a segment that does not triangulate with the others, then the triangulation will not show up. This is what I recommend you do: Download your DNA Matches shared segments. You can do so ...

Most companies, e.g. Family Tree DNA, simply use the SNPs from the chip used in the DNA test when reporting their results. The Autosomal SNP comparison chart at International Society of Genetic Genealogy (ISOGG) wiki states that Family Tree DNA test with 698,179 SNPs. They also report only using those SNPs. GEDmatch's SNP counts are a bit higher than ...

Wait for your GEDCOME file to be created (you will be notified by email). Download the GEDCOM file.

Maybe. First you would need to be able to download your autosomal raw data from your testing service. It should save to a text or csv (comma delimited file). If they provide the raw data, it should be a large file containing hundreds of thousands of lines. Each line should contain fields for the RSID, Chromosome, Position and the Value. If your service ...

You can only export a tree that you own from MyHeritage to Gedcom. Looking at the screenshot, you don't appear to be the owner of that tree.

After reviewing my options, I decided to import GEDCOMs from the other sites I use into FamilySearch. This has the advantage of helping me get all data into one place, although it's frustrating that I can't download my tree from there once the process is finished. I'll probably import it into Ancestry as a new tree and delete my old one when I get to that ...

Trying to compare the holdings of the different subscription sites is one of the most frustrating parts of 'doing genealogy'. Trying to determine the differences between the regular consumer version of the websites and their library editions is also difficult. As I write this, World Vital Records says they have 21,674 record collections, which you can ...

You are correct that there is nothing on the photo itself that tells you the source of the photo itself, and it only says that you are the submitter. (I agree that is weird and MyHeritage should change that). But what you can do is go to the person for whom that photo was added. You should find at the bottom right of the person's profile page that ...

Starting from your MyHeritage DNA matches page, the results look something like this: You can see the dropdown menu at the top which shows 5 ways to sort the results: Shared DNA Shared segments Largest segments Full name Most recent Getting to your three sorting methods: Sorting by Most recent brings the newest result to the top. To get the largest ...

I would create a new tree for each step-relative you want to trace. Your step-relative should be the central person and it should include all his/her relatives. You could include his/her step children in the tree as if they were real. I'd then remove him/her from my main tree so I won't have to maintain information in both trees. Then whenever hints come in ...

You can probably delete it from the All facts view of the person: To delete a fact, click on the small "x" on the right of the blue header line for the fact: Alternatively, you can also delete facts by selecting the person in the tree view which brings up the summary for the person on the left pane: You'll see all the facts listed in the left pane. In the ...

I suggest uploading everything to Gedmatch, which has an excellent segment mapper. If the man who matches your family is willing. Your analysis is correct: the fact that it's a fully identical region for your mother and uncle means that anyone who matches one of them in that same location should match the other. Occasionally, you have issues where a ...

The Biogene result I would not characterize as "conclusive". By their own analysis, it is wrong about 6% of the time. If they give the same result for fifty test submittals, they will be wrong about there being a relationship for three of those test takers. That's definitely more than a shadow of a doubt. (Note also that the statistic Biogene gives is ...

While not a typical program that you are probably looking for, I understand that The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding (TNG) allows input of DNA results from any source. The associated TNG Wiki seems to indicate comparisons are available. The TNG Forum may be a place to ask for further specifics.

Just from the information you've provided, there seems to be a reasonable likelihood that your 1st cousin match may be your uncle's daughter (although, as @ColeValleyGirl points out, it might also be half-aunt/niece, somehow). However, the disparity in matches with LC is a bit puzzling. It's difficult to draw conclusions from individual pair-wise matches. ...

If I read your question correctly, you are 1/32 Chinese and 1/32 Native American. It is not surprising that those ethnicities were not detected since you might not have any DNA from those ancestors in the regions used for determining ethnicity. See also How many generations back will specific ethnicity show up in DNA?. Another factor is that the ethnicity ...

I needed to do this (and have succeeded) twice so far. What I did was looking for the tree admins on Facebook and in general on the internet, trying to find their other accounts that I can reach. It worked in both cases.

I e-mailed misconduct@geni.com and they removed errounosly added profiles of close relatives from MyHeritage. They also advised that there's an option to exclude profiles you manage from MyHeritage's match search by unticking a box under privacy settings > managed profiles

Your only option is to contact the person who owns the tree and try to convince them politely (and ideally with some excellent sources to back up your arguments) that you're right, and they're wrong. There is no central 'Tree Police'.

My Heritage's ancestry calculators have issues. I would not rely on them. Download your raw data to your computer then upload it to Gedmatch.com. Wait a few days for your kit to be fully loaded. Then run their ancestry calculators and see what they say. If the family stories are true, then it is still possible not to have ancestry markers from these 3rd ...
