Free contact with DNA matches on MyHeritage

My Heritage ( has announced that the ability to contact holders of DNA matches on its site is now free:

In response to popular demand, Contacting DNA Matches is now available to all MyHeritage DNA users for free. This remains free for people who uploaded DNA data to MyHeritage, and, for the first time, is also free to users with MyHeritage DNA kits who do not have a subscription plan. We are making this free because this has been a frequent request by our users. In addition, we believe it will benefit the community because more people will be contacting their DNA Matches, resulting in more family reunions, more discoveries, and increased collaboration.

The full announcement is at

A free recording on Legacy about the latest improvements to the company's DNA Matching facilities is available at
