What is the GED Number?

My sister is trying to enter her DNA from Ancestry, and is asking what is the GED number, and where to find it? I am not sure to what she is referring.

Is it the # that she needs to access the information? Or, something else? A sample of her GED# for Ancestry would be helpful.

When you add autosomal DNA test data to WikiTree, one item on the form asks for a Gedmatch ID number. If you have uploaded your DNA data to Gedmatch.com. you will have a GEDmatch ID. If not, just leave that item blank.
I have been unable to download her DNA to Wikitree. She does not have  her kit # with her as she is in BC for the summer from Ontario. I have created a gedmatch file however, am unable to complete that without the kit #, therefore I expect that I will have to wait until she returns home.

In my case I had help uploading my DNA results to ged.com.  I was given a six digit identification number and a kit number.  Since then the identification number has been lost, but if you have the kit number you should be okay.  I just added that to my wiki tree info.

Ancestry does not have ged numbers. If she has uploaded her data to gedmatch.com then she will have a kit number there.
