MyHeritage Launches Genetic Groups

28 Dec 2020 10:36 AM | Anonymous

MyHeritage (the sponsor of this newsletter) has released a major new "release of Genetic Groups, a long-awaited enhancement of ethnicity results on MyHeritage DNA. With this very exciting addition, the resolution of MyHeritage’s ethnicity breakdown increases dramatically to 2,114 geographic regions, providing more depth and resolution than any other DNA test available today, and complementing the current 42 top-level ethnicities. This is a huge milestone for MyHeritage and a great step for millions of people fascinated by family history and curious to learn more about their origins."

The bottom line is that MyHeritage's Genetic Groups can display your family's genetic history in visual images that are much more detailed than anything else I have seen previously.

To be blunt, I cannot describe the new enhancements properly in words. Instead, I will point you to the announcement in the MyHeritage Blog. It not only describes the differences properly, it also includes numerous images of the Genetic Groups in use.

A lot more information about MyHeritage's Genetic Groups may be found in the MyHeritage Blog at:

    They screwed up big time with mine.

    I have Baltic and it is gone. Lumped my French with the Germans. Lumped distinctive separate Danish from the Swedish ones as one.
