End of Free DNA Uploads to MyHeritage November 30th — DNAeXplained – Genetic Genealogy

You have just 5 more days to upload your autosomal DNA raw data files from other sites to MyHeritage for entirely free. As of December 1st, MyHeritage is changing their pricing model for uploads and a charge of some sort will be put in place for the more advanced tools. MyHeritage hasn’t said exactly what…

via End of Free DNA Uploads to MyHeritage November 30th — DNAeXplained – Genetic Genealogy. Thank you to Roberta for posting a reminder about this change.

I have seen at least one DNA blogger who mistakenly posted you have until December 1, 2018 to do free full transfers and retain all of the benefits, but the quote below makes it clear the free full transfers ends November 30, 2018. Starting December 1, 2018, new transfers won’t get the full benefits. From the MyHeritage blog – https://blog.myheritage.com/2018/09/new-myheritage-supports-23andme-v5-and-living-dna-uploads/:

Upcoming changes

As of December 1, 2018, our policy regarding DNA uploads will change: DNA Matching will remain free for uploaded DNA data, but unlocking additional DNA features (for example, ethnicity estimate, chromosome browser, and some others) will require an extra payment for DNA files uploaded after this date. We will announce the full details of the new policy once it is finalized, closer to December 1st. All DNA data that was uploaded to MyHeritage in the past, and all DNA data that is uploaded now and prior to December 1, 2018, will continue to enjoy full access to all DNA features for free. These uploads will be grandfathered in and will remain free.

So, don’t delay, and upload your DNA data to MyHeritage now, while all the DNA features are free (and they will remain free for you). If you have tested with 23andMe (any versions including v5) or Living DNA, you’re in luck, and you can now upload this data to MyHeritage too. You can also upload DNA data from Ancestry and Family Tree DNA’s Family Finder test. Instructions for exporting your data and uploading it to MyHeritage are provided on our upload page.

I blogged about this earlier https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2018/09/15/myheritage-now-accepts-transfers-from-living-dna-and-23andme-but-will-soon-start-charging-for-some-features-cruwys-news/.
