Daniel Horowitz, the Genealogy Expert with MyHeritage, will present two talks that answer the following questions:
- What is MyHeritage and why is it beneficial to me?
- I have thousands of DNA matches. Now what?
What is MyHeritage and Why is it Beneficial to Me?
MyHeritage great technologies are the intersection of technology and genealogy: Smart Matches, Record Matches, Record Detective, Instant Discoveries, Photo Discoveries, Global Name Translation, PedigreeMap and Consistency Checker are just a few. Daniel will describe the challenges they solve and explain how you can make the most of them.
I Have Thousands of DNA Matches, Now What?
The MyHeritage DNA Matching service enables those who have taken a DNA test to enjoy exceptional matching capabilities, displaying the possible relationship between you and the other person. Daniel will explain the nuances of DNA tests and share how you can use the ancestral surnames and places in both trees, common matches and the chromosome browser to narrow down the good matches and decide who you should contact, all this with a Jewish twist.
