DNA Features

WikiTree doesn't host raw DNA data and we don't do direct matching.

Primarily, what we do is indicate that a member has taken a DNA test on all relevant WikiTree profiles. This can help you and others make the most of your DNA test in surprising ways.

See the DNA Features page for a complete explanation of this and the growing variety of features and benefits for genealogists who have taken DNA tests.

For an excellent introduction to WikiTree from the perspective of a genetic genealogist, see this post on Roberta Estes' DNAeXplained blog: WikiTree and DNA.

DNA Project

Our DNA-related features are growing and evolving quickly. We need the help of interested members who want to expand them with an eye toward fulfilling WikiTree's mission to create the family tree of humanity.

Please join the DNA Project and/or check out the discussion on Google+.

DNA Questions and Answers

See the DNA FAQ for common questions and answers about WikiTree's DNA features.

See the DNA tag in G2G for more Q&A. You can your own question there. Be sure to tag it "dna".
