If you know you share X-Dna with a person you wish to see the "Relation to me". Could it be possible to filter out the ancestors that cannot have X-Dna ?

> X-DNA refers to the DNA found on one of the sex chromosomes, the X chromosome. The other sex chromosome is the Y chromosome. Typically, most people get one Xchromosome from their biological mother, and an X or a Y chromosome from their biological father.

If you and another person, both females, match on the X chromosome, it could be either male or female lines for either or both of you. It is only men who can know that an X-match means female line (because their other 23rd chromosome is Y).Jan 20, 2018

Also you can't not have an x, everyone has one. 

Hi,

What I meant is: It would be nice to filter out lines that have father-son when using "relation to me". when there is a known X-Dna match. It is not easy to verify 220 lines of ancestors.

laugh Hah, okay, Jocelyn, you are asking a REALLY tough question  ... sounds like a App that could be useful but I don't know the names of the App developers --  and I don't know if any of the current Apps could be bent to perform that search or filter 

My suggestion is for you to open up your question and add the tag wikitree_tech, search_options, Apps -- or similar tags -- to get Tech attention to this ... could be there is already some angle or app you could use
