Downloading your My Heritage DNA

Downloading your 23andMe DNA

Here are the steps to getting your DNA from 23andMe:
Login to your MyHeritage account.
Hover over the DNA tab and go to ”Manage DNA kits”. On the right-hand side of the MyHeritage kit, click on the three dots and choose ”Download”.

A window will pop up with information on what you are about to download. Click ”Continue”. In the next popup you will be asked to accept the MyHeritage Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy, then click ”Continue” again.

An email with instructions will be sent to your registered email address. In that email is a link labeled "Download link". Click that.
Once you have clicked on the download link, you will be redirected to MyHeritage. Enter your password and click the ”Download” button. This is the file you'll upload to Somaticode.

Do not open your DNA file (ending in ".txt") and save it as another format. Leave it zipped up or as a .txt file.
