MyHeritage, who had until recently sold Family Tree DNA tests, released their own ancestry test in November last year, which links in with their family tree building and record finding service. At $79, the test is more affordable than many others on the market, especially considering that it not only offers ethnicity analysis but includes a family finder feature. Finally, MyHeritage has a large customer base in Europe so it is quite efficient in making connections with cousins in the “old country.”
