db errors:213 Missing fathers DNA confirmation

+15 votes

I am confused. 

I had may father, a third cousin and a 6th cousin all test. The third cousin has not entered his dna info here but they all match.

I went into each profile from my father up to their common ancestor and back down to the 6th cousin and marked them all as DNA verified. 

I did mark the 3rd cousin's line as DNA verified even though he has not entered his kit number.

Am I supposed to go into each profile and also add a note in the bio? I am getting a 213 Missing fathers DNA confirmation error on all the profiles.

Hello, Dawn!

You need to add a specific citation whenever you mark a profile as DNA Confirmed.

Here are a couple of links regarding the qualifications and the citation:

I have a number of profiles with missing father's DNA confirmation or missing mother's DNA confirmation, but I have not marked any of them as DNA confirmed.  Has someone else failed to mark them as DNA confirmed, and I've not checked all the listed sources to see if they indicate DNA confirmation. What am I to do?  Or someone else supposed to mark them as DNA confirmed?

David, I don't see any of those errors on your report.

The report only highlights those profiles where the confirmation has been checked incorrectly -- because it has no corresponding citation in the biography.
I can see the error on
