MyHeritage DNA Reactions


Ever since MyHeritage DNA was introduced in November, our kits have become wildly popular. Our users can’t help but share their enthusiasm as they open the beautifully designed, colorful MyHeritage DNA boxes, follow the simple steps to collect a DNA sample and receive their DNA results only a few weeks later.

Some of the reactions are from users delighted with receiving the beautiful MyHeritage DNA box, a few have filmed themselves unboxing the product, while others have explained their full DNA Ethnicity Estimate and even posted complete reviews about their experience with MyHeritage DNA.

    June 13, 2017 = you look like an Englishman… well maybe German and British of some sort.
    MyHeritage = Definitely Iberian and Scandinavian.

    I would love to know how uncommon it is, to have DNA that is almost 100% British?? Im Australian, and was disappointed to learn that I do not have any interesting genetics. I presume, it is because my ancestors came here long ago, and didn’t get mixed with other races after the wars.

      Hi Merilyn,

      We analyze the DNA inherited from your mother and father, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, and so on providing you with a breakdown of your ethnic percentages within approximately the last 6 generations. It is not uncommon for an Ethnicity Estimate to have close to or equal to 100% of one ethnicity.

    Can I upload my results from another DNA company to your MyHeritage?
