Re: DNA tests for genealogy in Israel #dna

Since he is in Israel, MyHeritage can not sell him a kit legally, nor can he upload his results there.  He could upload his results from FTDNA or Ancestry while on his vacation if his device did not show Israeli origination.  Thank the Chief Rabbinate for this.  They don't want people to find out that they are mamzers (the product of a religiously illegal marriage or adultery), because the religious laws against these people are so vile.  DNA is legal in Israel except for the "purpose of finding relatives".  However, I have ordered FTDNA kits that were shipped to Israel, and I have uploaded the results to MyHeritage, because I am in the US.
