How do I add mtDNA and yDNA results from LivingDNA test?

+3 votes
I've added them as text in the "test details", as suggested in the answer to another question, but that doesn't seem very visible on the profile and I don't think it allow others with similar results to match.

Currently, WikiTree does not propagate any mtDNA or yDNA results from anyone but FTDNA, to the related profiles of your ancestry.  So to make that happen, to propagate 23&Me or Living DNA yDNA and mtDNA results, you have to enter the "Other yDNA" test type and the "Other mtDNA" test type, on your WikiTree DNA Tests page.  That's what I have done for my Living DNA yDNA result.  (My Living DNA mtDNA result was identical to my FTDNA result, so didn't need to be propagated.  But my Living DNA yDNA haplogroup was different, 2 levels higher, so I wanted it showing.)

For more info, please see Connecting DNA Test Results to WikiTree Profiles.

Thanks, I've done that but it doesn't seem to have propagated. e.g my father's profile still says: However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
Does it take some time to propagate?

Yes, the process that propagates DNA results only runs overnight, so check again tomorrow, should be visible then.

"WikiTree does not propagate any mtDNA or yDNA results from anyone but FTDNA"

AncestryDNA once offered mtDNA and Y-DNA testing.  Those results when entered also propagate.

Thanks Peter, I did not know that.  Come to think of it, I don't think I have seen an AncestryDNA yDNA or mtDNA result here either.
Both mtdna and ydna results have propagated now, thanks.
Great, Chris!

Thanks, Peter.  I couldn't help noticing that a LOT of people on both lists did not report their haplogroup!  I really don't understand that.  What's the point?  You might as well be reporting you took a driving test, or a cholesterol test - without showing the result, seems just as irrelevant and useless.
