My First MyHeritage Concept of Household Relativity « Louis Kessler’s Behold Weblog Get hold of US

I’ve opened my MyHeritage account in 2014 and I’ve been a subscriber to their Full Plan since February 2018. It was then that I began utilizing MyHeritage as my main website for storing my household tree data.

I took a MyHeritage DNA check in 2007 and uploaded my uncle’s check from FTDNA in 2018. I linked each my and my uncle’s assessments to my tree.

By the tip of 2019, I possible had 1000 genetic relations in my tree. As we speak that quantity might be near 1500.

However I didn’t have any Theories of Household Relativity.  Why not?

Over at Ancestry, I’ve solely a small model of my tree, perhaps 200 folks. I DNA examined there as nicely. Ancestry has its Via Traces that are much like MyHeritage’s Theories. I’ve about 20 Via Traces over at Ancestry and about 5 of them helped me connect with new relations.

So once more, why do I not have any Theories at MyHeritage?

In February 2021, I submitted a help request to MyHeritage asking that query. A member of their DNA Help Workforce replied again that it didn’t make sense to him both. The ultimate reply was that the Analysis and Improvement staff didn’t have an answer but for me. They mentioned they’ll be giving precedence to resolve this and mentioned that they’re injecting new Theories of Household Relativity quickly and hopefully I’ll have some Theories.

The subsequent Concept launch in the summertime of 2021 didn’t have any theories for me.

This morning, I noticed this June 29, 2022 weblog publish from MyHeritage: New Update to Theory of Family Relativity. In it they state 25 million new Theories had been added.  328 thousand kits that didn’t have any Theories now have at the least one. And 233 thousand customers could have at the least one principle following this replace.

I didn’t get my hopes up, however once I logged into MyHeritage, I noticed this:

So I’m one of many new Theorists!

I wrote the above earlier than I regarded to see what the Concept/ies could be. What number of do I’ve? Are they correct? May they join me to a brand new relative I’ve not but discovered?

My Theories

Now for the reveal:  It seems that I’ve my first 2 ever Theories of Household Relativity:


Concept 1

The primary Concept for L.R. may be very attention-grabbing to me. (Click on on graphic for a bigger picture)


I do know from data that the daddy of my great-grandfather Haim Herzanu was Leib, so the reference to the primary site from Israel evaluated at 75% is sensible.

The identical web site additionally makes the third connection between Moscu Hertzman and Leonard Hertzman evaluated at 100%. This Moscu within the tree from Israel is claimed to have been born in Dorohoi or Hertza in Romania, which is the place my Herzanu ancestors are from.

It’s that center non-public household website that appears to have one thing incorrect. It has Leiba Hertzeanu as a brother of Leib Hertzeanu which wouldn’t occur, and the previous was born in 1796 and the latter born in 1848 and it’s unlikely brothers can be 52 years aside. It’s attainable that the latter Leib was a grandson of the Leibu.

However I’m not complaining. This data from this Israeli website might have a set of relations that I have no idea about, and I could possibly finally connect with the L.R. who’s my DNA match. So there’s some gratifying analysis work that may come out of this. I’m positively going to need to contact the proprietor of that website from Israel.

My Uncle is on this aspect of my household, and he has this similar Concept.

Concept 2 with 4 Paths

The 2nd Concept for D. Z. is equally attention-grabbing: It really has 4 totally different paths.

Path 1, 71% confidence:


Path 2, 75% confidence:


Path 3, 67% confidence:


Path 4:, 20% confidence:


These are nice. That’s two totally different Israeli internet sites, the Geni website, in addition to a Non-public website are concerned in these 4 paths.

My Uncle’s DNA doesn’t have this Concept. I’m undecided why not. I might suppose it ought to since it’s alongside the identical line as the first Concept. This could possibly be one thing I can get MyHeritage to test into.


None of those theories are something near proof, however they definitely are good suppositions that may permit me to discover and speak to the opposite website house owners to share data and any paperwork we’ve. If these ancestors are really from Dorohoi/Hertza, I do know the place data are obtainable from there that could possibly validly join my household with these in these different bushes.

I can lastly see what the joy is with this Concept of Household Relativity expertise, which matches bushes to data to DNA. It supplies loads of avenues so that you can discover.
