    That happened to my kits too, but that actually seems to have made it more accurate, not less. For me, anyway.

    That's quite typical for MyHeritage: to have matches with people sharing no common ethnicites.

    So is relation possible cause we share no common ethnicity, or MyHeritage has poor reference and they calcutator shuffle components very often?

    As far as I understand, the relation is possible, it's more likely that the ethnicity estimate is somewhat wrong than that matches are wrong.

    I see, or maybe is proof not look at ethnic estimate only review your highest CM matches with MyHeritage, use your raw data for other sites cause MyHeritage results is in development the results doesnt add up

    A bunch of new matches appeared for me. What surprised me is this Hispanic which I match a total 22.6cm largest 14.7cm. I have a ton of hispanic matches on ancestryDNA/ged-match ranging from 11-6cm, but I have never had one as large as this

    edit: The 14.7 cm is only 256 snps, whereas the smaller segment 7.99cm is 4352snps, which is extremely large for such a small segment from my experience. So I guess it fits the usual trend of such matches for me.
    what is interesting though this time is that I share exactly the same segments with another Hispanic (and we triangulate) which is a first. So I guess its likely a real match but very distant.

    Ethnicity is only an estimate and I would not take it literally. MyHeritage's ethnicities are particularly poor, in my experience, so not sharing an ethnicity with a DNA match doesn't mean it's a false match.

    Same for me. My prior closest matches are gone and the current closest are people I know as not too distant cousins. They are almost certainly closer than the missing matches from before.
