At MyHeritage.com, each of your DNA matches can share as little as 6 cMs and as many as 3,500 cMs with you. Enter the desired minimum number of cMs a DNA match must share and the maximum a DNA match can share to select the range of DNA matches to be gathered. Matches are saved to a separate .CSV file named “m_MH_tester_name.csv” where “tester_name” is the name you chose in your MyHeritage account profile settings.
Check this box to gather the Chromosome segments shared with the selected Profile and his/her matches to your DNAGedcom database. A separate .CSV file named “tester_name_ChromosomeBrowser.csv” is saved to your computer. Click the “Clear Chromosome” button to update your database by re-gathering the chromosome information.
Check this box to gather the In Common With (ICW) information for the selected Profile to your DNAGedcom database. A separate .CSV file named “tester_name_ICW.csv” is saved to your computer. Click the “Clear ICW” button to update your database by re-gathering the ICW information.
Check this box to gather the Triangulation data for the selected Profile to your DNAGedcom database. A separate .CSV file named “tester_name_Triag.csv” is saved to your computer. Click the “Clear ICW” button to update your database by re-gathering the Triangulation information.

Gather DNA Data
Once the desired options are selected, click on the Gather DNA Data bar to gather the DNA matches from the selected Profile. The DNAGedcom Client will gather the DNA matches for the selected Profile using the selected options. The screen will display a message showing the level of cMs being gathered, the percentage and number gathered so far of the all matches, and the estimated time to remaining to complete in day:hour:minutes:seconds format.
Click on the Run Report bar to create new CSV files from the existing information in your database that will overwrite any existing .CSV file with the same name.
