Rand-1781 was my great grandmother and I have tested at Ancestry, MH, and 23andMe. There are other descendants I match also.
WikiTree profile: Ethel Bisbee

Wikitree does not accept any RAW DNA Data.

Wikitree only requires the details of the test you took, the company and the kit number if requested.

You have already added those details and that information has been propagated up through your ancestors and out to your 3rd cousins for anyone whom you may be related to.

You can read this page for more details

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:DNATests

At this point, there is nothing else that you need to do here on Wikitree. IF any new relatives are added to the tree that are within the DNA limits (8 generations back and 3rd cousins out) then your details will show up on their profiles up to 48 hours later. The system gets updated once every 24 hours.

Oh and to answer the question of why Ethel Bisbee does not show up in your tree, is because she is not currently connected  to the Wikitree Global tree.

She has no parents, no spouse and no children with whom she can be connected.

Wikitree does not so the autopropagation that Ancestry does.

 So you will have to connect ethel to her spouse or to her children in order to be connected to you.

Assuming that Ethel Bisbee was married to Harry Bisbee, I have connected them for you. But now the DNA information will take anywhere from 24 to 36 hours to be added to her profile. If this is wrong, please let me know and I will unlink them for you.

Your next step will be to add Ethels family. The DNA details cannot be propulgated to family members if there are no profiles.

Have found sources for the marriage so the connection I made is correct. It will now take anywhere from 24 to 36 hours for Ethel's profile to be connected so you do need to be patient.
