    I hope you get more than 14 matches. I have been at that number now for 2 - 3 weeks.

    Perhaps they limit matches because they don't gain any profit from the uploading of other companies kits? Therefore you only get more matches once you purchase a MyHeritage kit.
    Known ancestry - English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Croatian, Bosnian, Ashkenazi, Polish and Māori.

    Then they are changing the terms of their offer to transfer DNA from other companies.

    Some people have reported having as few as 3 matches now. I had hundreds of matches during their beta stage, but they dropped to 14 (and have stayed there) once out of beta. What was going on during the beta stage that hundreds of matches were incorrect and what is going on now that I only match 14 people?

    I think it's more likely that they:
    1. don't have all that many uploads yet so the database is fairly small (look at DNA.LAND, what does my dad have? two matches? and they have a tiny database)
    2. at first they gave people hundreds of matches and all sorts of 2nd cousins from people with heritage mostly not within 1000 or even 3000 miles of most of your heritage so they refined it and made it more selective, but they may have gone a trace overboard in the other way now as I see my dad is missing a match to the daughter of someone (on FTDNA, which itself it pretty likely to discount matches, and GEDMATCH he matches both of them with ease)

    anyway my dad currently has like 5 matches and my mom 0
