Have you looked at your DNA matches on GEDmatch.com? You share 398 cM with Tina Pepito. She is your closest match, using the GEDmatch One-to-Many DNA Comparison Result tool. Do you know who she is and how you're related to her? You can use the Shared cM Tool on DNAPainter: https://dnapainter.com/tools/sharedcmv4   to determine how you might be related to her. Depending on her age and yours, she might be your 1C1R (first cousin once removed), your great great aunt, or your 2C, or a number of other fairly closely related relatives.  Once you determine how you and she are related, you can use the new WikiTree DNA Confirmation Citation Maker: https://apps.wikitree.com/apps/clarke11007/DNAconf.php  to determine which ancestors your relationship confirms, and the appropriate DNA confirmation statement you can place on WikiTree profiles.

To find relatives here in Wikitree who may share your DNA  you first need to build your tree back until you connect with profiles that are already created.  Your DNA test info will propagate back through your lines and appear on your ancestors’ profiles, along with similar information for any other Wikitree descendants who have entered their DNA test information. Then you can do actual DNA comparisons on a site like Gedmatch.
