Cannot find anything on this site after contact by a present member.

A member called Carkin-47 contacted me via email saying we matched on the X side from a DNA test I took years ago (I'm guessing that's how she found me). I cannot find ANYTHING remotely connected to her name. Everything I do-says must be a member. Thought I was a member after joining earlier today-guess not. I'm staying with (DNA test completed and joined two years ago), because this site makes no sense-goodby.

Hi G., Wish you would give WikiTree a chance and stay as we are a community that is willing to help each other.

A little about DNA at WikiTree. At WikiTree we do not analyze or store your RAW DNA. We help DNA cousins find each other. We do that by letting you identify which tests you have taken and whether you have uploaded your test to the website.

When you add your DNA test information, it takes about 24 hours for the system to add your profile link to the profiles of your ancestors and their descendants. That is why there need to be profiles for your ancestors.

Check out that How-To link we sent in your confirmation email, especially the Getting Started with DNA part at the bottom. Then start adding your family profiles. 

Please make sure to review any suggested matches because there are lots of profiles already here. You may be able to make a fast connection to the Global WikiTree.

I have posted a comment on your profile with information to use to complete your membership.

I think a Guest member can use the WikiTree private message system. There's a link on her profile page that says [send a private message].
