Missing y-DNA connection on Wikitree

+6 votes
My father (Muise-23) has a DNA test and the y-DNA test shows correctly on his ancestors' profiles back to his great-grandfather (Mius-22).  The DNA test is missing from any other profiles starting with his great-great-grandfather (Mius-62).   

Does Wikitree only allow so many generations credit for a test?  This test matches others in a different branch of the family 13 generations removed.

Hi Marcel, Thank you for joining our worldwide WikiTree!

Yes, the yDNA should show on the earlier paternal line forefathers.  I think you need to wait overnight for the database to be indexed.  Check a few hours from now and see if the test appears on http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mius-62.

Hi Marcel, I just checked and it seems to be OK now.  The yDNA test shows down Larry's paternal ancestry line and the mtDNA test shows down his maternal line correctly.  I think we just had to wait for the evening database index to run.  Kitty
