Are there short answers, to DNA confirmation.

I am a DNA match to my Cousin. 

Should I simply add a Source citation, that we match, on the common relative? 

How does my DNA information end up below their DNA information, with common relatives? So others can compare to both our DNAs.

I went through and found that by editting and marking the parents "is confident", this assist with all but this one:

Once a day WikiTree updates all DNA test information to display on all appropriate profiles. If you only recently made changes to how Hiram Koon was related to you, you probably will see your DNA test information on his profile tomorrow.

Does your cousin have a profile on WikiTree? Has your cousin entered his/her DNA test information on his/her own profile? On WikiTree we confirm a person's relationship to his/her parents, using DNA test information. You can find the format for the necessary DNA confirmation statements here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:DNA_Confirmation As stated at the top of the page, we're currently working on revisions to the page. The short answer is yes, you need a DNA confirmation statement on each page with a parent marked 'confirmed with DNA'.

Thanks! I greatly appreciate the assistance.

I am wanting to connect myself to my 3rd Cousin Marilyn (Flee) Groves. Here is the Source, where do I copy, and paste this to, my profile, Marilyn's profile, or Hiram Koon (1852 - 1930), https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Koon-247

* Paternal relationship is confirmed with an AncestryDNA test match between [[Flee-1|Marilyn (Flee) Groves]] and [[Culp-1341|Christopher Culp]], third cousins. Predicted relationship reported by AncestryDNA: 3rd Cousins; Confidence: Good.
Please change your Wiki ID in your statement to Culp-1351, not Culp-1341. On Marilyn's profile, from the drop down list under 'Flee-1' at the top right of her profile, select 'Relationship to Me'. That will give you a list of which relationships can be marked 'confirmed with DNA'. Put the DNA confirmation statement on each profile of a child with a parent marked 'confirmed with DNA'. Please note that these instructions apply because you are 3rd cousins. If you were 3C1R, or more distantly related, on WikiTree you would have to use triangulation before marking any relationships 'confirmed with DNA': https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:DNA_Confirmation#Autosomal_Triangulation
