Sarah Erwin Veale is my 6x great-grandmother, but my DNA results are not showing up on her profile: Erwin-1171. How do I do that?

DNA is really only accurate enough going back 8 generations or 200 years. Your profile is 300 years ago and is too far back to be considered accurate.

As long as the paper trail is accurate then she is still your ancestor.

As Robynne indicated, Sarah (Erwin) Veale is too distant for your DNA test info to be reflected on her profile. WikiTree propagates autosomal DNA test info out 8 steps from the test-taker. Sarah is actually your 7g grandmother and is 9 steps away from you. Her daughter Amelia is your 6g grandmother (8 steps from you), and your DNA test info appears on Amelia's profile.

Now in looking at it again, I see that there aren't any DNA test results posted for anyone else either! Thanks anyway!
