It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Michelle by comparing test results with other
carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Michelle:
HI Michelle, thanks for your welcome note. I do have a few questions before I can start my profile. I was adopted and I have done my Ancestry DNA test. I do know my birth name and my birth mother's name. I am not really sure if I should be using my birth name, my adopted name? I read the section on adoption here and I see I should be using my biological family tree and should only make one profile. Any other advice? I don't have my birth father's name but have all my non-identifying information. Thanks for your help!
Hi Michelle, Thanks for the warm welcome and offer to help. I do have a question regarding my GEDCOM and DNA. I attached both to my profile on Thursday, but neither have made any changes whatsoever (that I can tell). I know that the DNA is updated daily, but I have trouble believing that I have no matches to anyone on Wikitree.
How long will it be until the GEDCOM data will be available to me here? Have I done anything wrong?
Thanks in advance!
Hi Michelle, many thanks for asking how I'm doing. I'm adding profiles of family members at the moment and paying attention to sources to confirm the facts. Enjoying learning my way round the site and going through the help pages, doing OK so far.
Thanks for checking in on how I'm doing. I'm doing OK, I think! There's lots to take in and sort through. It seems like I can get going down lots of different " rabbit trails". But it is very interesting! Thanks!
Thanks Michelle. I'm a bit worried about how I'm going to enter all my family data with the preferred format for source citations. I have always added my sources at the end of each event rather than having pages of endnotes. I have a lot of collateral family research to help me find connections and I can't imagine reentering all of it. I would love any advice.
Thanks Michelle. At least I see from the posts that I am on the same track as others suggested so it isn't incompetence that is keeping me from moving forward:-) I will just keep looking. I really think we go to the Yorkshire area before London but we will see. I know this because I found a 4 step separated person in Yorkshire with a tree to another Place surname fellow in California who matches me 110/111. Can't get much closer.
