I'm not sure that you can under the new privacy laws. Each of these men need to join Wikitree (As a family guest only) and add their own details.

I'm sure someone can explain the details...

You might be better off uploading the data to the other DNA test companies that accept DNA raw data.

The DNA results here (on wikitree)  can only propagate along the tree provided you have done the research and have made the connections. So you have to have done the work first.

Living people need to be WIkiTree members in order to have DNA tests posted, but they don't necessarily need to add their test data themselves. If you get these men to join WikiTree and make you a profile manager on their profiles, then you can add their test data.

"If you get these men to join WikiTree and make you a profile manager on their profiles, then you can add their test data."  I really wish this was true.  I was added back in as a PM to my father's profile after he accepted my invitation to Wikitree.  I can't do anything with his DNA tests.

This was previously discussed in G2G here and here.

Your father's profile shows all three types of DNA tests, Kerry. (Wow!) What is it that you can't do there?
I added the DNA tests before he accepted the invitation.  Even though I'm a PM on his profile again, I can't do anything with his tests.  There are no options to edit or add.
You can no longer enter DNA test information for another person. Each person needs to enter their own.
