Based upon the information reflected via the following WikiTree Help link...

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:DNA

... Your not supposed to do this for any living individual as its only to be done by those specific individuals in question.

Just look at it like an immediate family member of yours doing this for you as you may feel (in a way) violated that someone had done this on you.

If you have any questions, concerns, etc... your best bet is to reach out to WikiTree support at info@wikitree.com for some guidance.

Hopefully I had explained this okay via text...

Good Luck!

Your daughter would need to join WikiTree.  Then she can add her own test.  If she is not an adult, I recommend you wait.

Your daughter's father's DNA will be more useful than your daughter's for the ancestors in his line.  If you have both his and your own results, your daughter's test will add no useful information.  If that is not possible, then your daughter's DNA will be useful for her father's line, and if she joins WT as I've mentioned, she can post her DNA test information.

Whether or not your daughter's father was tested, it would still be quite useful to test his siblings, if he has any, or any of his older relatives still living.
