I see that there are a huge number of posts to various forums about people inquiring about their DNA kits, results, questions, etc. and Remo seems to spend a lot of time posting the same answer to everyone to send the inquiry to support and not post to the forums.
Might I suggest that you could have a new forum titled DNA Inquiries - Read This First and put it at the top of the forum list where it cannot be missed, and have a post in it telling everyone to send their inquiries to support instead of posting to the forum (can you "sticky" it to keep it at the top)? Might help cut down on some of Remo's work.
I recently took one of your DNA testsand got some very confusing results. Mainly the total lack of Irish, Scottish, and Welsh DNA which showed as 0%. My mother's side of the family is mainly Irish with Scottish. My father's side is Welsh (on his fathers) and English (on his mothers.) I can confirm most of this through birth records, wills, gravestones etc.
I was expecting some surpising results, but it seems statistically impossible not to have any welsh, irish, scottish DNA (0%) it would imply that for the past few hundred years at every branch, everyone has been English...
Was there a mix up at the lab? or is there a really low accuracy of the results coming from myHeritage? It seems others have posted similar issues with other ethnicitys.
Tracking of my kit ceased 4 days ago. No response to my emails to DHL or myheritage. UK telephone number has a message saying they are at lunch no matter when you phone. I do not trust this Comapny and want my money back but they are seemingly uncontactable. Has anyone any ideas as how to proceed ??
I just had a quick question to ask. I set my DNA kit in about two and a half weeks ago and I've been tracking the results. I feel like nothing has happened and I'm just wondering if there is a time that it takes from the time it's mailed to time the lab would get it. It's been about two and a half weeks. am I too impatient or should I be seeing results
My DNA results have changed, for some reason I am now 18% Italian, and it does not show my British, Scottish, or Irish ancestry. I have a very extensive line in those 3 places, and cannot find anything Italian in my tree. We have royal blood in those places as well. My uncle works for the geneology dept. at the LDS geneology library. He has been able to get to B.C. lines. The test came back and was confirmed by his research, and a while later it all changed. WHY???
I have already contacted customer service regarding this issue with search results in Books and Publications but the serviceperson was of no real help. When I try to view ANY of the results for ANY of the people I have searched, I get the "BROKEN LINK" page. Is it my browser or just part of the service?
So, no customer service (the Swedish telephone number doesn't even exist!), I have called several other country numbers and left messages without getting a reply, or simply gotten a generic "we are unavailable" message. I have never experienced anything like this.
Please forward this message to this mythical "moderator forum", since I want a refund for all 5 kits I ordered.
I am extremely disappointed in my results I received this morning. I was adopted from Korea as a baby. However I found out today that the possible results do not consider Korea as a possibility at all. I feel this information was very misleading and my results turned out to be completely useless as I have no idea how accurate these estimations are. I would like to speak to someone regarding the results as they are clearly inaccurate.
I have asked for a refund prior to receiving the 6 DNA kits that I had ordered. I've email the support email 6 times and I am still awaiting an outstanding refund. This falls under the cancellation clause with the T&Cs. How can I get this resolved?
My mother was born in Scotland from Scottish parents (way back). My father was born of a Scottish mother (also way back) and an Irish father (harder to pin down). When I got my 23andme results I got the expected 90% British result. The rest was a smattering of Northwestern European DNA with a .2% being Finnish.
I uploaded my raw data to your site, while I considered whether or not I wanted to join. I got a lot of weird results. I did get around 70% British. However, it's very unlikely that I'm 17% Scandinavian and almost 10% Finnish as your ethnicity estimate would have me believe. There is also no way that I'm 4% Greek. Could you please explain how your results can be so off from both my family tree and 23andme? Has there been an error? You're using the same raw DNA sample. I'm very confused.
It would be nice if you answered here how this could be, just from a scientific standpoint. I have found many posts like this with a suggestion that the issue be handled privately. This doesn't really help any of your customers understand what seems to be an error.
My result show no Italian DNA whatsoever. My mother is italian from both side of her family, with Italian names, and family still leaving there from Milan to Calabria.
I was expecting some "surprises" ,DNA you would not expect to have and was ready to embrace those but it is purely impossible not to have any (0%) of Italian DNA. A mere 10% would have raised suspicion but 0% is simply inexact.
Was there a mix up at the laboratory or shall seriously doubt the truthfulness and accuracy of the results coming from your company?
I have just spent over 45 minutes waiting for support only to be #2 in line (started at #12) and was cut-off! I called back and I was #17 in line. Hung up! Called back and requested Sales only to be switched to Support and being told that they are now closed for the holiday! I called the Canadian number and the same thing!
I've just about had it with this company! My family tree was apparently updated/synched on 11/16 but I DIDN'T SYNCH or UPDATE IT! The data is in my tree is now over 2 years old! This has happened before.
I suggest that someone from this company contact me and resolve these issues. In the interium, my money will go to Ancestry where I know I can depend upon support! I will continue to post this message in all forums if it is deleted.
How are the privacy settings used in SmartMatch? I want my invited members to be able to read notes and view pictures. If I set these items viewable to the members they are also published in the SmartMatch view. How do I set the privacy to hide the information in SmartMatch?
If you intend to purchase the kit, please be advised that the kit is shipped by DHL only to the port of entry, where-after SAPO is suppose to deliver your package. This is a huge problem seeing that SAPO is absolutely useless.
I've been waiting for a month to receive my package. It spent two weeks between germany and SA before customs finally checked the package in at JIMC A. Now I need to wait for them to finally send the package to me...no one knows how long that will take!
Maybe try and request that MyHeritage ships via DHL directly to you, without going through SAPO.
How can my full sister and I only share about 21% ethinticity? I am 79.6% N and W European and 20.4% English. She shows being only 0.9% N and W European and 65.4% English. She has 3 other regions also that don't show up for me at all.
Just got my results and was shocked along with my family that I have 0% Native American in my DNA. My family geneology has tracked us back to documented census reports that outline we have Native American.
I registered the DNA kit online, and screwed up because 2 of us are doing the DNA. I have been trying to get through to support all day and I even left a message and nobody will call me back. I am screwed, I wish I had never bought this.
