MyHeritage Updated their Theory of Family Relativity Again

MyHeritage announced that they have refreshed the data for their Theory of Family Relativity. This is the third time they have updated the feature since releasing in in February of 2019. This revolutionary technology may offer astounding new information on your family connections.

The Theory of Family Relativity helps you to make the most of your DNA Matches by incorporating genealogical information from all our collections of 12.5 billion historical records and 4 billion family tree profiles, to offer theories on how you and your DNA Matches might be related.

As a result of this update, the total number of theories has increased from 20,330,031 to 33,373,070 – a 64% increase. The number of DNA Matches that include a theory increased by 59% from 14,201,731 to 22,618,962. The number of MyHeritage users who now have at least one Theory of Family Relativity for their DNA Matches has increased by 28%.

Sometimes, MyHeritage arrives at a theory through multiple paths, indicating a strong theory and providing additional supporting evidence. After the previous update, there were a total of 161,762,761 paths. This update increased the number of paths by 61% to 261,960,015.

Users who have taken a MyHeritage DNA test or who have uploaded a DNA kit from another service since the last update may now receive answers and new insights about their relationships to their DNA Matches. This update will also provide users who have previously taken a MyHeritage DNA test or uploaded their DNA data with new theories to further their research, thanks to MyHeritage’s ever-growing database of family trees and historical records.

The Theory of Family Relativity can be a game-changer for people searching for new family members and genealogists trying to break through brick walls. It can help users instantly solve mysteries that may have been baffling them for months or years.
