This profile shows up in my tree and I am pretty sure its an accurate ancestor, but I do not show up as a potential dna match for others to compare to as I do on more recent generations. Anyone know why/how to fix?

WikiTree only matches DNA back 6 generations (I am pretty sure, but there is a limit). Autosomal DNA is really only valid about that far back. WikiTree also uses the tree, not the raw DNA to make the connections.
