Hey, William. The more DNA the better, so thanks for that.  :-)

There is no connection--as in no actual data linkage for DNA values or test information--between WikiTree and the testing companies. Which is a good thing, because there is never a chance that any information about your raw DNA results can be revealed on WikiTree.

From your own profile, click "Edit," and then in the text below the menu tabs under your name, click "Edit DNA tests here." From there you can manage information for any tests you've taken. Find your FTDNA yDNA test section, and click on the big green button labeled, "Edit or Enter More Details." Voila! Update everything there...and be sure to save the changes!

Thanks for upgrading your test.

Hello William,

You also need to change your privacy level from "Private" to "Private with Public Biography and Family Tree".  If you don't then no one but those on your trusted list can see your DNA information and your Y-DNA information is not automatically associated with your direct paternal line.

If you need privacy then change your first name to W or Anonymous (and / or do that for your parents).

Sincerely, Peter

William, I see that you did change your privacy level as Peter suggested. And I can also see that you've entered information about your Family Finder auDNA test from FTDNA. But you haven't entered any information yet about your yDNA test from FTDNA. That is a separate test you should add to WikiTree. One other comment: If you've uploaded your Family Finder test to GEDmatch.com, you were given a GEDmatch ID that consists of a letter and 6 numbers. On WikiTree that should be entered for your GEDmatch ID instead of "wlapeer".
