23andMe and MyHeritage

I'm sure everyone knows that 23andMe has entered into a partnership with 23andMe. Starting May 1, 2015, if you have a tree at 23andMe, it will be moved to MyHeritage.com, or you have the option of uploading your own GEDCOM to MyHeritage or keep the tree you already have there.

You may also know that MyHeritage offers free genealogy software that integrates with your online tree so updating is automatic. What, if any, new features might be offered by MyHeritage that make use of your DNA data from 23andMe is not yet known.

Be aware! MyHeritage will import your tree or allow you to create a new one for free but only for six months. After that, if your tree has 250 nodes or more, you will have to pay the normal subscription fee at MyHeritage to keep it there.
