We are happy to introduce the ability to confirm or reject a Theory of Family Relativity™ on MyHeritage. This functionality has been widely requested by our DNA users, and we are delighted to deliver it.

Ever since we first released the Theory of Family Relativity™, this feature was a game changer in genetic genealogy. It helps you make the most of your DNA Matches by incorporating genealogical information from all our collections of more than 13 billion historical records and family tree profiles to offer theories on how you and your DNA Matches might be related. If you are unfamiliar with this feature, you can read more about how the Theory of Family Relativity™ works and how to use it on the MyHeritage Knowledge Base. But until now, the ability to confirm or reject theories was missing.

New: Confirming or rejecting a theory

While the theories presented by MyHeritage are often accurate, they are occasionally incorrect. As mentioned above, theories are based on historical records and family tree data. There may be errors in the family trees contributed by other MyHeritage users, or in the historical records, and sometimes the technology used by MyHeritage to match them to each other makes a mistake, leading to an incorrect theory.
