I haven't taken My Heritage, so I can't address it directly, but I concur with Pax. We shouldn't be taking any of these too seriously.

I always use the adoptee test. If I were adopted and knew nothing about my ancestry, would it give me the correct information? 23andme has me as mainly Italian but with a hodgepodge of other ancestry, mostly Northwest European. Ancestry says I'm 45% French, which is ridiculous. Their own graphics make it clear. It's just that parts of northern Italy and parts of France and French Switzerland are similar.

So, they both fail.
 
if i was adoptee than i will find out i am quarter askenazi
and my heritage didn't fail here just like ftdna didnt who gave me the same %
as you said in other thread it is easy to see askenazi dna because of the bottleneck

You're right as far as the companies are concerned: both My Heritage and 23andme can tell you if you have Ashkenazi ancestry in genealogical time.

Ashkenazi ancestry is special in that way.

Eurogenes "J Test", on the other hand, is useless.
 
In short, depending on the situation, 23andMe + trio-phasing involving adopted, spouse and child could occasionally provide really good clues on the ancestry of the adopted person.
It's amazing how 23andMe refined my results with phasing, in these last versions. It got way less "confused", and assign me almost 90% of Italian ancestry, even my ancestry not being related to a more central position in the country.

myheritage is far superior in finding matches than any other company I tried.............as long as you stick by 2 rules that work for me
1 - a Medium Confidence indicator......minimum require, avoid the ones that state Low confidence
2 - have more than 1 segment matching, regardless of size

I have , apart from 4 family members........another 6 clear matches on paternal and maternal sides , which later I have found in BDM records

I uploaded my uncle's Raw Data to MyHeritage, but now the company is charging for revealing results. So another time... :)
 
Mine, too much Balkan I think:)

One of the many "weird things" on MyHeritage: the Nigerian component present in so many Southern Europeans. And continuing with the "strange things about Africa": my Sub-Saharan African component (1%) is...Kenyan! Given the history of the slave trade to the American continent, the most logical thing is that this component of mine originated in West Africa. Since, as we know, the genetic variation between African populations is enormous, the error is not small...

most likely because the kingdoms of Nigeria and Congo where selling african slaves ( captured in their yearly african raids ) to the white slave traders to take to the Americas ..............it was a lucrative trade business for these African kingdoms

The eastern african side, was dominated by the Arab slave traders in the area of Tanzania and zanzibar
