In honor of the holidays, we share an incredible story about MyHeritage user Roswitha, of Germany. She received a life-changing message on MyHeritage from her brother on Christmas. She believed he had died years ago. Roswitha’s mother immigrated to Canada in 1956, leaving Roswitha, 2, behind. I stayed and grew up with my grandparents in Germany. My mother was pregnant when she emigrated and, in September 1956, my sister was born in Montreal.

At MyHeritage, we constantly discover new ways for our users to explore their origins and learn more about who they are. Our Science Team, led by world-renowned genetics pioneer Dr. Yaniv Erlich, recently released surveys — a cutting-edge research project to help us investigate how genetics affects various aspects of our lives, with the cooperation of the MyHeritage community.

Today, Americans around the world will celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a holiday that we take seriously, and not only in the US. American ex-pats will celebrate wherever they live. In some countries, it’s hard to find the necessary essential foods, such as cranberry sauce, or even whole turkeys. But no matter where we live, we try our best to reproduce the menu and the good feelings of this favorite holiday.

We’re very happy to share this emotional and exciting reunion between a mother and daughter who met for the first time today live on Good Morning America, thanks to MyHeritage DNA. Angie was a teenage mother and placed her daughter Meribeth for adoption in 1986. She never got to hold Meribeth in her arms after she gave birth to her, and she always hoped that she was adopted by a loving family.

We’re delighted to introduce our new TV commercial for the holidays. As a family history and DNA company, we know what a tremendous gift it can be to discover your ethnic roots and find new relatives. This is why, this holiday season, we invite you to give your loved ones the ultimate gift: a MyHeritage DNA test. Our inspiration for this year’s commercial was the fact that within each of us are the many layers of our family’s history and ethnic background.
