9 NEW reports added to MyHeritage Health test

The following was received from our sponsor, My Heritage,
and we knew it would be of immediate interest to our blog listeners.

I’m pleased to share that today we added 9 new reports to the MyHeritage Health test! The new reports include a polygenic risk score (PRS) for high blood pressure, genetic risk reports for PALB2-associated breast cancer and susceptibility to malignant hyperthermia, a report on susceptibility to HIV-1 infection, and 5 carrier status reports. 
One of the 9 new reports, the new report for high blood pressure, is exclusive to MyHeritage and it may inform individuals who have increased genetic risk years before the onset of high blood pressure, enabling early intervention measures and frequent checkups with their healthcare provider.
We recently received a moving testimonial from one of our customers, who thanked us because, as he put it, MyHeritage saved his daughter’s life. This was achieved by detecting a rare BRCA variant that only MyHeritage tests for among the major at-home consumer DNA health tests. It is successes like these that make us even more determined to continue our mission to raise awareness of genetic health risks and provide insights on significant medical conditions to the public.
Users who have purchased the Health subscription can access these reports for free.
You can find more details about the new reports and their availability in the press release
I’d also like to take this opportunity to remind you about our amazing Black Friday sale — we’re selling MyHeritage Health kits for only $79 instead of $199, and health upgrades for $50 instead of $120.
I encourage you to share the announcement about these significant enhancements to our Health product with your network and on your social channels.
Best regards,

Bruce Buzbee Provides Update on RootsMagic 8

Bruce Buzbee of RootsMagic released an important blog post on 11/13/19 concerning
 the status of development of RootsMagic8. First, read his blog posting at so that you understand the many difficulties,
he and his team have encountered. 

As the largest, most complicated version of the software, they have accomplished
a vast rewrite if the program.  However, they have also been dependent on
 the purchase of some other software utilities to facilitate some functions. Further, the
number of breaks in the Application Program Interfaces (APIs) was greater than 
anticipated. In addition, the team ended up rewriting commercial libraries from other
 companies because of their deficiencies in adhering to the RootsMagic specifications.

As a result, Bruce has had to make the decision to communicate honestly with RM
users to states that there is more work to do. He and his team are literally working 
every available hour to write code and conduct tests. However, that means RM8 will 
not be available by the end of the year.

I have personally used RotsMagic for over a dozen years at least. Each new release
has worked as advertised with a minimum of tweaks required. (I can't say that about 
the other 5 genealogy database software programs I've used.)

I applaud Bruce's honest announcement in his blog. I therefore know that RM8 
will be the finest database program out there, bar none.

Please also take the time to watch the YouTube video in the blog which details what
RM8 will look like and how it will operate. You'll be blown away!

Thank you, Bruce and all of your team for the hard, hard work you have committed
to making RM8 the best software program out there,

George G. Morgan
