Introducing Labels for DNA Matches on MyHeritage

 I received this from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage today:


I’m so excited to tell you that MyHeritage has just introduced labels for DNA Matches, a convenient way of organizing your DNA Matches into customized groups.

As our DNA database continues to expand, your growing list of DNA Matches can get overwhelming. You can assign each color-coded label to represent a different group of interest, such as different family lines, descendants of a specific ancestor, matches of high interest, matches that you haven’t had a chance to investigate yet, or matches that require a closer look when you have the chance.

Labeling your matches enables you to get organized, define more exact research goals, and determine your next steps. What’s more, using labels is completely free and doesn’t require a paid plan. Watch the video to see how this new feature works.

We know this feature brings a great deal of value to genealogists using DNA to fill in the gaps in their family tree and learn more about their ancestral lines. We hope that you and your followers enjoy it and get plenty of effective use out of it! You can learn more about the feature in our blog post here


Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and gave received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.
