PS: Numbers are assigned by how many people have already joined WikiTree with the same surname. Since "Brown" is a common surname, you are number  56,816 to join us. That's a lot of Browns!!! 

Dna test numbers are assigned by where the kit was processed not WikiTree. Is your brother already a member??

 

**Oh, this page may help you concerning DNA Tests etc.. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/DNA_Features

Again welcome as a full member!! Thank you for joining us!

Thanks Susan for Best Answer!!
