Lynda,

I am not clear on exactly what you are asking.

However, on your profile page you should be able to open the DNA Tests page via a link on the right and enter you Ancestry DNA info.

Or you can click on the Family Tree and Tools tab on your profile page, Click on the WikiTree Tools Tab then scroll to Tests of Lynda's DNA link and open that link. From there you can Add a New Test.

Let us know if this helps.

It looks like you have already done this, so did you resolve your question are did I misunderstand?

Be sure to also use Gedmatch.com so tests across agencies can be compared.  It's free.
Also, give the system 24 hours to update and your DNA tests will show up on the appropriate ancestor profiles.
If I did it and it looks correct, I did it.  Thank you Michael for your reply. I just noticed it.  After reading, I understand there's no REAL linkage of the information, just a note that I have had the test.  Is that right?
Ahhh....that answers the question of why I don't see anything.
Yes, check it tomorrow and the link should take you to Ancestry.com.  

If your login has been saved via Ancestry.com, it will take you to your DNA page.  If I click on it, it takes me to my DNA page.  So no DNA info is posted on Wikitree, only the fact that based on the type of test taken, the appropriate profiles will show the test as well.  So, if we both show up on the same profile, we can then collaborate to see if we have a true DNA link via the Testing site or via GEDMATCH.  See my profile page for examples.

WikiTree facilitates the connections, but we still have to conduct the actual comparisons.
