    I think there's something to this. I believe MyHeritage is not picking up all matches from 23andme v4 AND v5 transfers. Not only are my matches from my FTDNA kit more in the normal range for relationships on MyHeritage, my 23andme transfer usually reduces relationships between 0.1 - 0.5%. Furthermore, I have a perplexing example here:

    Strange Chromo Match.jpg

    This Chromosome Browser image is showing a relationship between my grandparent, my grandparent's second cousin and myself. On MyHeritage, my grandparent doesn't match their second cousin AT ALL - but I match the second cousin. Looking at this Chromosome Browser, I should be triangulating between these two matches. I match my grandparent on all the spots that I match my grandparent's second cousin. I also know this is coming from the correct side as my other side comes from a different continent.
