This company is based in Israel. They advertise a lot in Europe, but they also have a big American customer base. Their test is a swab test, you have to swab your cheeks and return the swabs to their lab. MyHeritage allows the transfer of RAW DNA results from other companies, and you will see your matches for free there too. For some of the more advanced features of the website you have to pay a fee.
If you have tested your DNA at MyHeritage, and you want to download your RAW DNA (so you can upload it to other sites), please follow these instructions.
