DNA and family trees complement each other. DNA can be used to prove or disprove documented family tree connections. For example, if there is another person with your surname, or a family tree owner with whom you have a Smart Match™, you can both test on MyHeritage DNA to find out if you are indeed related.
Conversely, family trees are invaluable for understanding the relationship path to DNA matches. Creating a family tree is recommended for anyone taking a DNA test, to make the most of the DNA results and to uncover the full story behind them. MyHeritage provides excellent tools for creating a family tree, and 7 billion historical records that make it fun and easy to expand it.
