Go to your "Family Tree & Tools" screen, scroll down to "WikiTree Tools" and the click on "Tests of Lise's DNA" to add the testing information.

Please see:

You will need to change your privacy level from "Private" to "Private with public family tree" if you wish to make the following directions worthwhile.

Go to myFTDNA page at Family Tree DNA.  Under mtDNA, click on the Matches tab.  Then at the bottom of that page click on the button labeled "Upload to MitoSearch.org".  Enter your contact and ancestry information at MitoSearch.  You could enter your coding region differences in the note field at MitoSearch.  Then click save.  Then enter your Mitosearch ID on your DNA Tests page at in WikiTree.  There is a note field under mtDNA on your DNA Tests page where you could also enter your coding region differences however as stated in the first link above: [The coding region differences of] "The full sequence mtDNA test (mtFullSequence) may reveal medically significant information for you and all your mtDNA cousins.  About one in 200 people have a mtDNA mutation that potentially causes disease in the offspring of female carriers.
