MyHeritage DNA has a Mother's Day Sale

MyHeritage DNA announced that they are having a Mother’s Day DNA sale. Genealogists who are interested in helping their moms learn more about their DNA can take this opportunity to give them an interesting gift for Mother’s Day. If you happen to miss the sale, it is still a good idea to give a family member the gift of a MyHeritage DNA kit.

The MyHeritage DNA Mother’s Day sale began at the end of April of 2018, and will end on May 14, 2018. During this time frame, the MyHeritage DNA kit will be on sale for $59.00 per kit. (Shipping cost is not included in that price). Orders need to be placed by May 6 to receive by Mother’s Day.

If you miss out on this sale, there’s the possibility that MyHeritage DNA will have more sales, connected to special holidays, in the future. It is worth pointing out that, even though this is a Mother’s Day sale, it is entirely possible for a genealogist to purchase a DNA test kit at a discount as a gift for any of their relatives.

The MyHeritage DNA kit requires a gentle cheek swap. It takes about two minutes. No blood or saliva is required. Results are available in four weeks on MyHeritage’s private and secure website. MyHeritage says:

β€œAt MyHeritage, your privacy and the security of your data is as important to us as it is to you. We have made significant investments to ensure that your account and personal details are secured and protected by multiple layers of encryption. All testing is done in our world-leading CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory in the United States.”

The MyHeritage DNA kit includes an Ethnicity Estimate. It provides a percentage breakdown of your ancestral background, showing your ancestors’ origins from 42 ethnicities, including Japanese, Irish, Italian, Jewish, and many others. It gives you a list of the regions your ancestors – from both sides of your family – came from. It also includes the percentage of your DNA that comes from each area.

MyHeritage has a feature called DNA Matching. It helps people who have taken the MyHeritage DNA test to find relatives. This technology compares the test taker’s DNA with the DNA of others, and identifies shared genetic sequences that indicate a possible family relationship. The higher the percentage of DNA that a person has with another person, the closer their likely relationship is.
