WikiTree profile: Lisa McKeown

Is this regards DNA, or the profiles of other people?

There are 6 individuals in Wikitree that you match in Gedmatch.

You have to use the Tier 1 One-To-Many DNA comparison to see them, the regular One-To-Many does not show them all.  None are very close, so you will need to add at least you great-grandparents to see the connections.

Lisa - you really need to build up your ancestors family tree.  The system can't show your DNA on any ancestors if you have not put any ancestors in! ;) And other people's DNA can't show up on your ancestors profiles.

Remember, also, that WikiTree is not a matching service.

Remember, the DNA matching is being done, based on your connected ancestors.  If the system doesn't know you aren't connected to them, it can't help you as much.

There are over 1,000 others with the McKeown surname listed at WikiTree. To find the list, just go to the Find menu at the upper right of this page. Click on Surnames and spell it out.

Also, if you can start your family tree with your parents, grandparents, great grandparents and so on, the potential for connecting will improve a lot. It's helpful to show birth year, marriage year and location. Location would be country, county and city.
