Can I re-assign a DNA kit that comes from a different DNA provider?

If you have uploaded to MyHeritage a DNA file from a different DNA provider than MyHeritage DNA (such as AncestryDNA, 23andMe or FamilyTreeDNA) to the profile of the wrong individual, you have the possibility to re-assign it  to someone else in your family tree.

To do so, please follow these instructions:

1. Log into your family site

2. Hover your mouse over the ‘DNA’ tab and click on ‘Manage DNA kits’

3. You will see the DNA file(s) that you have uploaded and/or the ones you have purchased via MyHeritage DNA.

4. On the right of each kit listed, click on the dots  to see different options, then click on ‘Re-assign’:

5. In the window that pops up, type the name of the individual whom you would like to re-assign the DNA kit to:

 

6. Select the correct individual among the suggestions that come up

7. Make sure you obtained permission of that person to manage his/her DNA data, then check the box

8. Click ‘Save’

That’s it! The DNA file has now been assigned to that person.
