DNA Test Results as possible way to link profiles

+3 votes



These two profiles are possibly related and a few DNA test results are posted to both profiles   Has there been adequate testing done to determine if the two men may be related? 

I'm related to Robinson-34586,  but haven't had DNA testing done yet.    Maybe it's time!!!!

Any help is greatly appreciated!

WikiTree does not analysis of DNA data.

When you record that you've taken a test, within 24 hours we automatically connect this fact to profiles on WikiTree where your test may be useful for confirming or rejecting relationships. This encourages others — including distant cousins who find the profiles through Google searches — to compare results or get tested.   

Confirmation of DNA matches need to happen on the site where you did the test, or on GEDMatch, as an example.

Thanks Robin,

Good to know,   I was pretty certain that I would need to get DNA testing myself to accomplish my goals.
