Daniel Horowitz - Family Tree Live speaker profile



Learn how to use DNA match technology combined with your online family tree research


Daniel Horowitz will be speaking on ‘DNA Matching Technology – A New Frontier in Genealogy’ and ‘Discovering Your Family History with MyHeritage Unique Technologies’ at Family Tree Live


Introducing Daniel Horowitz’s Friday talk:

‘DNA Matching Technology – A New Frontier in Genealogy’

Today’s affordable, easy-to-use DNA home testing kit can reveal valuable family history information and tell you more about your origins.

The DNA Matching service enables those who performed a DNA test in almost any company out there, to enjoy exceptional matching capabilities for their family history research. For every DNA Match, you can get the possible relationship between you and the other person. If your match has a family tree, you’ll also be able to view it and get more insight about how you are related; the ancestral surnames and places common or not in both trees; a pedigree chart and a chromosome browser for the main individuals in MyHeritage are just a few of the tools I used to prove my family was really related in more than one way. And if you want, you can then contact your DNA Matches to exchange information and collaborate on your research.


This talk is for you if you enjoy learning from case studies and would like to see how DNA insights can be combined with your traditional research for new insights to your family history using MyHeritage.

Suitable for many levels of family history experience.
