Wikitree does not have uploads of DNA data and does not do matching, so you will not be notified of any potential matches. When you registered your AncestryDNA kit on Wikitree the DNA trail will have been propagated along the Wikitree paper trail giving you clues to potential matches. You will need to go to the websites where you tested or have uploaded raw data to view whether these people match you or not.

Bill, The potential matches will show up on your DNA confirmation page. Other than that, I don't believe there is any notification to you.

Hello Bill,

I recommend you add your AncestryDNA results to GEDmatch and then add your GEDmatch ID to your DNA Tests page in WikiTree.

As others have explained, Wikitree does NOT DO DNA matches.

You will have to check your matches on the Ancestry DNA website.

Ancestry SHOULD send you an email when you get new matches.

Ancestry has never sent me an email for new matches. How would I turn that on?
