Re: DNA matches by country #dna

Marion Werle

There is a problem with sorting by country. There are two shools of thought regarding how to enter birthplaces and places of residence on family trees. One (which I follow, and Legacy Family Tree - owned by MyHeritage- subscibes to) says to use the name of the location and the jurisdiction as it existed at the time. The other says to use current place name. My DNA matches on MyHeritage that show "Russia" as a birthplace are not at all helpful, although I list current place names on my DNA profile, as opposed to my tree.
