Description of Error - 313: Missing mothers DNA confirmation

Mother is marked ‘confirmed with DNA’, but the words ‘maternal’ and ‘confirmed’ do not appear in the biography.

  • These errors are overseen by the DNA Project

Content of info column: Empty.

Possible Causes

  • There is no statement on the profile explaining how DNA was used to confirm the relationship.
  • There is a confirmation statement on the profile, but it’s not in the expected format.

Action Steps

  • In each of these situations, change the maternal status from ‘confirmed with DNA’ to ‘confident’:
    • No DNA tests are displayed in the ‘DNA tested’ section on the right side of the profile.
    • Only one DNA test is displayed in the “DNA tested’ section.
    • No children are displayed and the profiled person didn’t take a DNA test.
  • If there is a non-standard confirmation statement:
    • If the statement does not provide enough information, Private Message the PM information including these instructions https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:DNA_Confirmation and ask the PM to add a confirmation statement in the correct format. Offer assistance if needed.
  • If there are two or more tests displayed, and they may or may not support the maternal relationship, leave this message on the profile:
    • Please add a statement to this profile explaining how you used DNA to confirm his/her relationship to his/her parents. See this page for how to do that: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:DNA_Confirmation. (Offer assistance if needed if the PM is active. If no statement is provided with enough information to mark the relationship confirmed with DNA--suggest a change to ‘confident’.)

PM's are being zinged when someone else has changed the confidence of parents to DNA confirmed. There needs to be a way to place the responsibility of providing the proof on the individual making the change, not on the PM.

If we are all related somehow and we each add a description to each profile we are related to, then there could be 40 to 50 or much higher descriptions. Or do we put it on our own profile example -Garrett-5361

I would have to put over 100 descriptions on my profile or on my 100 profiles I create???? DO NOT TELL ME TO READ IT AGAIN, IT NEEDS TO BE PLAIN AND SIMPLE FOR FOLKS TO UNDERSTAND.

Suggestion: Add a forced source entry when selecting the button next to each person/parent when contributor/user selects the button for 'Confirmed with DNA'. Right now, it's too easy to select this button no matter if DNA is proved or not. Thank you!

How do I fix this error? My mother and I were both tested with 23andMe. I think I may have accidentally deleted the source for the confirmation from my profile when I was doing some housekeeping.

Help please.

Mother is marked ‘confirmed with DNA’, but the words ‘paternal’ and ‘confirmed’ do not appear in the biography. Wouldn't that be the word "maternal" instead of "paternal"?
