Are you interested in the DNA Project?

If you've come to the project page because you want to ask a DNA-related question, head over to our G2G forum and post your question there. Be sure to use the tag DNA to make sure your post is seen by the right people.

If you would like to learn more about DNA, but are not ready to join the project, follow the DNA tag.


Project Mission

DNA is the new frontier of genealogy. It has become an important part of WikiTree's mission to connect the human family on one accurate single family tree.

The DNA Project is a way to organize those of us who are most interested in how WikiTree integrates DNA test results on the limbs we share on WikiTree. Our mission is to help members understand and use DNA information on WikiTree, manage DNA information accuracy, and expand DNA features in the One World Tree.

There are currently two ways to participate: the Innovators and the Educators. See the sub-project pages for goals and tasks to determine how you'd like to be involved. You are welcome to participate in both if you are interested!

Innovators and Educators Sub-Projects

DNA Innovators

Team Leaders: Mags Gaulden and Peter Roberts
Team Coordinator: Thom Anderson

The role of the DNA Innovators is to network with genetic genealogists both within WikiTree and in the global community, to drive innovation, and to help develop tools to be used in WikiTree to help others integrate their DNA results with their genealogical research. Innovators are bringing ideas and imagination to shape current and future DNA features on WikiTree.

DNA Educators

Team Leader: If you are interested in this role, contact Eowyn.

The DNA Educators' goal is to help others learn how to use DNA in their genealogical research and on WikiTree. They work one-on-one with people, answer questions about DNA on G2G, and develop educational strategies, including the development of a training program for people interested in learning how to use the DNA tools on WikiTree.
