Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. It is rapidly becoming an important part of WikiTree.
WikiTree doesn't host raw DNA data. What we do is connect what's learned and can be learned from DNA comparisons to our worldwide family tree. This can have surprisingly powerful benefits for us all. See the DNA Features page for an explanation of the growing list.
For an introduction from a user's perspective, you might be interested in Peter Roberts' "WikiTree and DNA" post on Roberta Estes' DNAeXplained blog or Kitty Cooper's "Organizing DNA results with your Genealogy."
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.
See the DNA FAQ for common questions and answers about WikiTree's DNA features.
DNA Tests on WikiTree
Here are the DNA tests that WikiTree members have taken:
- Autosomal DNA Tests
- Y-Chromosome DNA Tests
- Mitochondrial DNA Tests
Many members have also taken the National Geographic Genographic test, BritainsDNA, etc., but those are not considered useful for genealogy on WikiTree. See the DNA FAQ for the explanation.
