I'm a little confused why Chinese and Vietnamese are lumped together as a result. Are they suppose to share the same genetics and are interchangeable? Like all Vietnamese people are technically Chinese by ancestry? My family definitely hails from northeast Asia as per my Mongolian and Japanese genetic markers so I'm not sure why Chinese and Vietnamese are suppose to be generally the same genetic makeup. I feel like people from Southern China would have more similarities with Vietnamese than the Northern Chinese.
Hi - has anyone else experienced issues with invitations to family members not being sent? I've added an email and selected invite to site and nobody has received an email. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
I have in my father side of the family two couples that were actually first cousins. When I try to make the connection the system just creates a segund record of the same person and does not allow the connection.
Do I have to enter the set of parents again on to be able to continue with the tree building.
Can you please help if you have already gone through this same situation
Hi, My husbands (verified) cousin uploaded her raw file from FTDNA but said she could only use the Switzerland version. She lives in Switzerland. I checked my husbands matches & she does not show as a match. I know I'm new at this but could someone please explain this to me?
Hi all, I just sent my sample from the UK today but at the post office they asked me what was inside (for customs purposes) and when I said cotton buds they said that it's not allowed to send cotton to the US. I then said earbuds (and put that on the form instead of cottonbuds) but I'm worried that my sample might be held on entering the US. Could anyone share their experience of posting from the UK and if you've encountered any problems? Many thanks!
Hello, I live in Brazil and I ordered a DNA test. Now I was trying to send back my sample and I discovered that the Brazilian post office and customs do not allow us to send biological samples abroad. They returned to me the samples. Now I don't know how to send the samples to be analysed in your labs. What should I do??
I'm curious if there's an issue with my raw DNA, as it only took 2 days for my husband's to be processed. Not trying to be impatient, just curious if I need to delete and try again. I sent in a support ticket August 30th, with no answer, so figured I had better try here. Thank you.
I ordered 2 kits, one for my wife and one for me. My father was adopted but we suspected that he was of Germain or of that area descent. My mother's mother and grandmother were British, her father was Scott Irish. My wifes father was primary Swedish and her mother, European, English, Irish and possibly Cherokee. I'm fairly confident that I registered each of our kits separately. When we got out results, my wife was about 50% Scott Irish Welsh and I was only about 11% Scott Irish Welsh even though my mother was almost exclusivley Celtic.
The red flag was raised when we got notified of a DNA match that my first cousin is a match to my wife, first cousin to my wife and not me.
Did I get them switched? Did My Heritage somehow get them switched?????
most everyone of my relationship are incorrect. since upgrading my whole tree has been screwed. can't do as much as i did with basic account. i want to add people and make corrections. a lot of entries are double some triple. can't make corrections. do not want to print a tree with names that say living. done the privacity option, still no first nsme. I need a refund so I can get an account elsewhere.
Two days ago I got a message saying, "Hooray! Your DNA sample has arrived at the MyHeritage DNA lab." I'm a little concerned, because I put my DNA kit in the mail more than three weeks ago. Is this delay likely to cause a problem? Jonathan Weiner
I uploaded my 23andme raw data to My Heritage, and am very disappointed with the results. My Heritage claims I have 0% Scottish ancestry, when I know for a stone cold fact I do. I have lines on both sides of my family that can be definitively and accurately traced back several centuries to Scotland.
If I can't trust that portion of my DNA results -- that I KNOW is incorrect -- what about the rest? Any help in understanding this would be appreciated, unless your help consists of "All this DNA stuff is BS."
I want to link my DNA results from MyHeritage to my name in a tree managed by someone else. I am a site member of the other tree. I want the site manager of the other tree to view my ethnicity and matches. How do I do this?
