I do not see that you have entered the information for your tests onto your profile.

WikiTree does not have any test results.  WikiTree shows what tests you have taken and under what name (full name or member name used for the testing company).  The only exception is if you manually enter a table or other notation giving details of your results.

I "ass-u-me" adding DNA results would help with the genealogy search for ancestors. I guess I am taking the search on WikiTree a little too far. Thanks for your response.
It's so easy to get caught up in the wonder that is WikiTree.  However, WikiTree can help with your DNA research in many ways -

1) no question too small or dumb to ask in G2G.  I asked one DNA question that got a lot of people going with 6 days of comments including private messages only to find at the end of the confab I had misunderstood one term which meant my question was worthless.  Except that I learned a lot from reading everyone's input - so ask when ever anything puzzles you.

2) as you proceed with building your family's profiles you will eventually connect to the ONE tree, then there are several ways to find DNA connections using the drop down menus at the top of your navigation page

3) If you haven't already, sign up and upload your test results to GEDmatch.com.  On GEDmatch you will be assigned a kit number for Ancestry test and one for 23andMe test.  Then post that information in your DNA results.  Whenever you are just browsing around and come across another GEDmatch number, you can compare the two.  For me, I clicked on someone's name in G2G because  I was curious.  I went to their profile page and saw their kit number.  I compared our kits and we have a DNA match so I left her a note.  I don't know who our common ancestor is but her surname is not a name I would have explored otherwise.  Serendipity happens.

Good luck and have fun, Kathleen

Why would other's have your DNA results?  Did you allow Wikitree to get the results from your tester?
