Why does my DNA I downloaded not show any connections to anyone? Lots of connection on Ancestry.

probably because of your restrictive privacy level

So if I change my privacy level that will connect me with others?
yes. your privacy level needs to show your tree.

wikitree dna works by looking at the connections to your tree and linking to others who have also tested. It doesn't do any actual matching.

Do you have an active user on Wikitree? When I click on your G2G name it is taking me to an unlisted profile.

I thought I did. I downloaded my DNA from Ancestry.
I can see your user now. It does not look as though you have created your branches of the tree so there is nowhere for the DNA to show. DNA on Wikitree just follows the paper trail. Since we do not upload raw DNA data it cannot show whether there are matching segments.
