Adding DNA Information?

+3 votes
I am a descendant of Matthias Holstein.  He is my 8th great-grandfather.  How do I add my DNA testing results to his profile?

(Please excuse my ignorance concerning DNA and how it applies.)

Hi Sharon,

As you build out your ancestors, within 24 hours your DNA test info will be propagated to the profiles of your appropriate ancestors based on the test type.

WikiTree propagates autosomal DNA test info out 8 steps from the test-taker. If Matthias is your 8g grandfather, he is 10 steps away from you, so he will be too distant for your autosomal DNA test info to appear on his profile (you are unlikely to have inherited significant DNA segments from him).
