While at RootsTech last week, I was reminded that MyHeritageDNA was allowing people who had tested at other sites to upload their raw DNA data into their database for free. I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to fish in another pond before that offer went away. Yesterday, I received an email letting me know that the first of my DNA matches were in.

MyHeritage was out in force at RootsTech and they have a big following, so I will be interested to see how their database develops as I obtain more matches. Right now their test kits are on sale at a competitive price as well.
My top three matches were for ones who I already matched with at other sites, but the rest of the matches did not look familiar at all. So I have a new set of relatives to reach out to.
It does seem as if more of these matches have the family trees than those found at 23andMe or Ancestry.
