Help needed with DNA confirmation.

+3 votes
Both myself and a paternal aunt have had our atDNA tested, and results have been received. I am confused with which relationships I can confirm on WikiTree. I have been over and over the examples, and keep coming up short on "definitive actions" to take. Most of the examples pertain to cousin relationships, and I am probably "overthinking" things.
The two ID's are: McNicol-132|Neil McNicol & McNicol-211|Margaret McIntyre

Thanks in advance...

To show who you can DNA confirm you should check the relationship finder. In "Explore more" it can show who you can DNA confirmed. I did my great-aunt and myself and got my great-grandparents that way.

The explore more shows what you can do. Then on the profiles you put something like this:

(Maternal or Paternal) relationship is confirmed with an (Test here) test match between (Your user id) and (Your aunt's id), nephew. Predicted relationship reported by (Company name) (relationship here) based on sharing  (cM count here) across (segment count here) segments; Confidence: Extremely high.

I know that's for AncestryDNA but it should work for whatever company you used.

Thank you Chris. I will have another look at the relationship finder, "Explore more".
