Finally Understand Your MyHeritage DNA Results | Take the MyHeritage DNA Tour with Your DNA Guide

Millions of people around the world have taken the MyHeritage DNA test, or transferred their results there. But too many people don’t fully understand their test results or how to navigate them. They miss powerful insights about their heritage!  

The MyHeritage DNA Tour with Your DNA Guide has answers. DNA expert Diahan Southard personally escorts you through the essential components, settings and concepts for using your DNA to explore your family story at MyHeritage. Our series of prerecorded video instructions, hands-on experience, workbook activities and a research log will help you apply what you learn to your own test results.

Take your DNA test results from confusion to clarity

Everyone deserves to know who they are and where they come from. DNA testing can help. But when you don’t understand your results, it can be disappointing and frustrating. Instead of gaining confidence about your origins, you may feel more confused. Instead of being excited to share with family and friends, you hesitate. You may even feel like you wasted your money.

It’s not just you! With DNA, there’s a learning curve.

That’s why we created the MyHeritage DNA Tour. It’s an online learning experience that takes about 2-3 hours (you set the pace!). You’ll watch a series of short, easy video tutorials. You’ll fill in a colorful, interactive PDF workbook. These exercises and activities will help you understand the DNA concepts and apply them to your own results.

When you finish your Tour, you’ll FINALLY better understand what your DNA is telling you about your roots. You’ll be more confident in your results and be better able to explain them to others. You’ll even see how, over time, your MyHeritage test results may continue to help you connect with unknown relatives and ancestors.

Good Information To Know

I enjoyed Diahan’s tour of MyHeritage. I feel that it was money well spent. I have been a MyHeritage user for a few years. I didn’t realize how much I had been overlooking. I did have one issue, but it was my own issue. I don’t have a PDF app on my phone because I use it so infrequently and I don’t want to pay for it. It was a bit challenging making my own research log file, but I muddled through. I’m thinking about trying a tour of another of the DNA companies to see what else I’ve been missing.

I have just recently joined MH. I've had DNA on there for a while. I had NO idea of all the awesome features of this website. Frankly, I doubt I would have ever found them on my own. I highly recommend this course for everyone, whether you've been a member for 2 days or 10 years. Diahan is an excellent instructor and shows you exactly how to find each and every feature and how to use them. Thank you SO much for doing this Tour!!

Finding hidden features

There are a lot of features on My Heritage that would have been overlooked without the course. This was my third DNA site and I still found it difficult. Search results seemed inconsistent until you fully understood the impact of filters. Also Canada is not in their sample groups which meant a lot of migration data to filter out. I ended up with mostly matches at 4-5 cousins. The section on using their chart to interpret relationships was helpful as I found most of their suggestions too close.
I worked the whole course. It took much longer than I had anticipated, but I learned lots. Thanks.

We're so happy to hear that you've been able to learn so much with the MyHeritage Tour. Thanks for leaving a review!
