How to add YDNA for son?

+6 votes
I keep trying to add YDNA from Family Tree for my son Eric and each time it says to change Gender.  I do this and SAVE and each time I come back, it's won't let me transer YDNA or change gender.  HELP  I'm his mother and Manager.

Both Eric Peterson and Peterson Peterson are male.  Eric shows that he has taken a Y-DNA test.  At about midnight tonight (Eastern Time) his Y-DNA information will be automatically associated with his direct paternal line.

Hello Mary,

For the males in your son's direct paternal line, it will be much more helpful if you change their privacy level from "Private" to "Private with Public Family Tree".  You should also upload his results to YSearch and add his YSearch ID to his DNA Tests page at
