Hi Donald

Thank you for your message on the DBE 213 page. This is a help page not a profile page. It is to provide guidance on how to clear the error by adding information to a profile.

Your request

"Would like to get on the trusted list of Harmon Gradeless (my father) so I can add DNA Confirmation that he is my father. "

You need to make this request on Harmon's profile. Although it appears you are already profile manager for him.

The DNA link to your parents appears to be confirmed, so I am uncertain why you are making the request to join his trusted list

Sorry not to be more helpful

Yes indeed the record is too late. That is why the comment was deleted soon after posting. Thanks !

Am staggered by the number of common ancestors I share with Donald (10th cousin once removed): 460. This includes, my father's side, my mother's father's side, and her mother's side...Tandy-271

Hi Donald,

Per your question to my comment on John Miner-12, Anderson's Great Migration series shows this as a baptism date, as does Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988 for John Minor, Records Of The First Church In Charlestown, Massachusetts, 1632-1789. Sharon

Hi Donald, thank you for your interest in the Collaborative Profile of the Week. For two years, as a group we improved one profile a week. This, however, is no longer an active project/challenge. We did create some great examples of profiles

Hello Donald!

I am working with the DNA Project. I Noticed you have something a bit amiss in your GEDmatch numbers. Would you verify them please? Your FTDNA GEDmatch number would begin with the letter T and Ancestry tests would begin with an A.

Once you find the right number(s) you can update your GEDmatch ID number(s) by clicking on the My WikiTree Menu at the top right of your profile page, then click on DNA confirmation.

Then click on the DNA test tab at the top of that page, then click the edit or enter more detail button on the right. Thanks! Emma :-)
