What is MyHeritage?

MyHeritage is a versatile app that enables you to delve into your family history and discover your genealogical roots. Available on both iOS and Android, this app competes with others like Family Tree Builder by providing additional services such as photo editing. While basic features can be accessed for free, a subscription unlocks its full potential, giving you access to tools like MyHeritage DNA, genealogical search tools, and a chromosome browser, allowing you to uncover your unique ethnic makeup and genetic heritage in detail.

How Does MyHeritage Function?

MyHeritage operates by utilizing your entered family data, expanding your family tree automatically as it accesses a vast database with thousands of profiles and various global records. Such records include census data, certificates, and newspapers. To enhance precision, MyHeritage offers a DNA kit to analyze a swab taken from your cheek. This comprehensive system allows you to:

  • Discover new relatives
  • Access historical records
  • Utilize matching technologies
  • Explore instant discoveries
  • View DNA matches
  • Examine vital and immigration records
  • Establish family relationships among living people

Through MyHeritage, you can gain a thorough understanding of your family history and relationships.
