Presenter: Daniel Horowitz, Chief Genealogist, MyHeritage
Daniel Horowitz has developed a new DNA Matching service that enables those who have been tested through different services to enjoy MyHeritage’s exceptional matching capabilities for their family history research.
For every DNA Match, MyHeritage displays the possible relationship between you and the other person, based on the quantity and characteristics of the DNA that you share with that person.
