Is there a way to find which profiles have DNA attached?

+5 votes
I am trying to find profiles that have DNA GEDmatch on them.  At the moment, I am looking for Ryan's.  Is there a way to search for them rather than go into every profile to see if a GEDmatch number is on it?

laugh It seems that if you do a google search for <wikitree, DNA GEDmatch> it will turn up the Help: GEDmatch - Wikitree page which has the URL of and there's another page and very likely other referrals to other pages will be found 


Cheers, I understand the process when their relationships are known but a group of Ryan relations are finding it difficult due to lack of Irish documentation to 'find' each other.  It everyone was on one DNA database (like GEDmatch) it would be fine.  I tested with FTDNA and cannot upload to Ancestry (nor My Heritage anymore) so if those other users aren't on FTDNA or GEDmatch we are not matching.  If I could find other Ryan's that have tested and aren't on GEDmatch I can find them and see if they will put it on GEDmatch so we can compare.
I tested on ancestry and have Ryan ancestors that lived in Galena, Illinois, nearby Hazel Green, Wisconsin, Benton, Wisconsin and some moved to Anaconda, Montana. I have some detailed information on some of them.

The best I could come up with is the google search:  

  • gedmatch "compare" ryan

It still results in 345, which is a lot but gives you something to work with.  (Don't forget the quotes around 'compare', or you will get over 5400, with variants of 'compare'.)

That sounds hopeful! Thanks.  I might have a play with Wiki Tree + as well but I don't know if it searches the whole page for 'DNA' or just fact fields.
