Since the last update, countless new DNA kits and family tree profiles have been added to MyHeritage. That’s according to a news release from the company.
The total number of theories has increased 47.7%, from 39,845,078 to 58,866,331
The number of DNA Matches that include a theory increased 48.7%, from 27,130,989 to 40,335,252
The number of relationship paths increased 46%, from 312,222,662 to 456,091,094 (sometimes theories are found through multiple paths, and these provide additional supporting evidence of a relationship)
The number of MyHeritage users who now have at least one Theory of Family Relativity™ for their DNA Matches has increased by 22.2%,
I now have 16 Theory of Family Relativity connections identified, five are identified as new. Five are medium confidence, six are low confidence.
My best match is a third cousin once removed. We share 79.2 cM in 3 segments, the largest being 43.7 cM.
There’s a fourth cousin once removed with whom I share 35.4 cM in 3
segments, the largest 22.2 cM. The match’s tree includes a victim of Auschwitz.
There’s more for me to explore yet.
