Re: are there benefits of the My Heritage site over Ancestry #general

In terms of DNA results, MyHeritage, 23andme and FTDNA are all vastly superior to Ancestry (and less expensive) in that the other companies give you the size of each chromosome segment you share, which Ancestry does not, and so Ancestry customers need to upload their genetic information to other companies or to Gedmatch in order to be able to make comparisons.  This is very frustrating as 9 times out of 10 people will not do this as they have spent their money on Ancestry without knowing what they are getting. Being able to compare the size of chromosome segment lengths is very important if you have Jewish ancestry, to determine the closeness of your relationship and how far back in time this goes.
