MyHeritage Introduces cM Explainer™

 I received this information from Daniel Horowitz at MyHeritage today:


I’m excited to introduce cM Explainer™, a free new feature that accurately estimates familial relationships between DNA Matches. For every DNA Match, cM Explainer™ offers detailed predictions of possible relationships between the two people and the respective probabilities of each relationship. It also determines their most recent common ancestor, and displays a diagram showing their relationship path.

cM Explainer™ uses both centimorgan value and the ages of the individuals to fine-tune its predictions — making it the most accurate and detailed feature of its kind.

cM Explainer™ is fully integrated into the MyHeritage platform so you can use it with any DNA Match on MyHeritage. It’s also available as a free standalone tool to benefit consumers who have tested with other DNA services.

See the MyHeritage press release about cM Explainer in Introducing cM Explainer™ to Predict Relationships Between DNA Matches With Greater Accuracy.

Stay tuned — more announcements are on the way :-)


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.  I am a subscriber to Family Tree Webinars and love it.
