Hi there, I'm an amateur genealogist. I'm interested in connecting with my past so I can better learn and tell the story of my own family roots, as well as help others with theirs. I think one of the most important things in life is helping to tell the story of our past to ignite genealogical inspiration for the generation of tomorrow. We are the keepers of memories, and the only way our ancestors' stories are not forgotten.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘Private w/ Public Biography & Family Tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see How to DNA on WikiTree
Here's a great YouTube video with all sorts of questions answered Getting Started with DNA.
