Best answer

You will need to add your test to your profile and separately add your daughter's test to a profile created for her.  Go up to the tabs at the top and click on the one that says Add +  The first choice is DNA Test information.  On the select DNA drop down, choose My Heritage.  

You will note that there is nothing to add except a Gedmatch ID because My Heritage doesn't have kit #s.  Have you uploaded your DNA to Gedmatch.com?  If not, I highly recommend you do.  It is FREE and it is a wonderful tool for comparing your DNA with others regardless of where you tested.  You will also get 100s if not 1000s of matches. AND it is linked to WikiTree.  I would do this first (it takes 24-48 hours to fully upload at Gedmatch).  Then come back and enter the Gedmatch ID number when you enter your My Heritage test.

You don't upload anything from My Heritage to WikiTree. We enter information about the tests.  And like I said, the My Heritage option only has one box-which is a Gedmatch ID-- (unless you use the write in box and include your name under which the test was taken).  But I hope you will take advantage of Gedmatch.  It will make your test information useful to everyone, including those who have not tested at My Heritage.
Ginny, I am a DNA mentor for WikiTree.  Feel free to private message me and I can walk you through anything you need to get you started.
Thank you Emma!
You're welcome Ginny.  I'm glad you got it worked out :-)
Ok you folks @ Wikitree are awesome, but if I thank each and everyone of you, that's all I would get done today. So here's a THANK YOU to all the editing and additions!!!! to all the Wikitreer's editing out there!!!
