The following announcement was written by MyHeritage:
We’re pleased to tell you about a very special limited-time offer we’re launching this week: from March 1, 2022, until March 8, 2022, you can upload your DNA data to MyHeritage and get access to all advanced DNA features, including the Ethnicity Estimate, absolutely free — forever!
Last year, we celebrated RootsTech with a similar offer. That offer that led Kara Miller to find her biological family, and eventually have both her birth father and her adoptive father walk her down the aisle at her wedding. Stories like Kara’s are why we do what we do here at MyHeritage, and we want to make many more of them possible!
MyHeritage always allows you to upload your DNA data from other providers and get DNA Matches for free. We’re aware that people who are searching for family members — such as adopted people searching for their birth parents — want to “fish in multiple ponds” and try multiple DNA databases to find leads, and purchasing multiple DNA kits gets expensive. That’s why we never charge users for uploading their DNA, viewing their list of DNA Matches, and contacting their DNA Matches. However, a one-time unlock fee of $29 (or a site subscription on MyHeritage) is usually required to access the advanced DNA features.
During this week, we are waiving the unlock fee. You can now upload your DNA data to MyHeritage and get access to your Ethnicity Estimate, Genetic Groups, and other advanced DNA tools such as the Chromosome Browser, AutoClusters, and Theory of Family Relativity™ — absolutely free! These features will remain free forever for the DNA kits you upload to MyHeritage during this week.
MyHeritage is the only DNA company to commit never to sell or license user data to third parties — so you can rest assured that your data is safe with us.
