Click on the link of your DNA kit provider for a how-to showing you how to download your raw DNA data.

When you have retrieved your file (do not unzip a zipped file), you can upload it to Geneanet DNA by following the steps below.

2. Click “DNA” then “Upload DNA data” in the Geneanet menu bar.

Or click this link then drag and drop your DNA data file to the “Upload raw DNA data (autosomal)” section, or select the file on your device.

You must upload the zip file you have downloaded. Do not unzip the file.

3. Submit the file

After clicking on “Upload your DNA data”, we ask you to read and validate our terms & conditions and our DNA charter. Following this validation, your file will be uploaded to our servers and processed, usually in 24-48 hours.

4. Link your DNA data to yourself in your tree.

If you link your DNA file to yourself in your family tree, our DNA matching feature will compare your tree with a match’s tree, looking for names and places in common. Read for more information and a how-to.

5. Your DNA matches.

You will be notified with an alert when one or more new DNA matches are available: a numbered red dot will appear on the bell icon at the top right of the screen. You will also receive an e-mail if you have configured the “DNA Matches” tab of the Newsletters configuration screen.
