My DNA info is no longer showing on my families profiles

+2 votes
My son just got his DNA so he joined WikiTree and did GEDmatch (he is Shoff-201). Now my DNA info is no longer showing on my families profiles but his is.

I also added him to my Trusted list. I started getting a "Red Warning Box" to change my privacy settings.So now I removed him.

I think I am losing my mind today!

When relationships change (adding new profiles, merging, etc.), it takes a while for the DNA indexing to catch up. WikiTree has to walk up and down all the connected profiles looking for DNA test takers.

On your WikiTree ID menu, select DNA, and then click on the DNA Tests tab, to verify you still have your tests showing.

Having your son on your Trusted List has nothing to do with the DNA indexing.

If you let us know the specific error message you are getting and what you were doing when it occurred, we can give you more specific assistance.

Okay that makes sense. His DNA info did not show until today. He entered his two days ago.

I did check to make sure that my DNA testing was still there and it is.

I posted on Linda's answer about the privacy warning.
Patience - not one of my virtues.

Thank you for your help Dennis, all I needed to do was to be patient!

You and Linda responded so quickly and I greatly appreciate it.

What was the Red Warning box message?  Trusted List doesn't have anything to do with DNA process.

Your profile has you linked to your son, but not to your father.

Your father is linked to your son, but not to you.

I apologize all I recall was at the top of my profile, like when you go to save a profile after you've made changes but there is an error warning, it went something like since you are a wikitree volunteer you need to change your privacy settings. I went in and set it to Private with Public Biography and Family Tree. I thought I had it as open.

On my profile I see myself as linked to my father.

It looks like your profile has the DNA connections to your son and your father!!
Thanks for you help Linda! It was important that I just be patient!
