If you have your DNA results on GedMatch (it is now just GedMatch as Genisis was the Beta when being transitioned) you add your GedMatch ID number to your DNA here on WikiTree. That will connect your WikiTree profile and your ancestors to your information on GedMatch.

Go to your Profile page and look in the top right corner. The third button says "Add". In the drop-down box, the first item is "DNA Test Information" click on that and you will find instructions.

Virginia has explained the procedure.

Note, however, that linking from Gedmatch back to WikiTree trees can be tricky. It's necessary to edit permissions on Gedmatch to allow the WikiTree link to display, and my permssions don't seem to stay set where I thought I left them.
