Some New Options for Your Geneanet DNA Matches

Posted by Jean-Yves on May 11, 2020

Some new options are now available for your DNA matches so you can easily see names and places shared with your DNA relatives.

To view your DNA matches, click “DNA” in the top menu bar then “View DNA matches”.

For every DNA match, you can see if there’s a family tree available, and if it’s the DNA data of the member who published the family tree or another person.

If there’s a family tree available, some suggestions of common ancestry are shown:
– Shared names in the same place
– Shared names
– Shared places.

You just have to click any name or place to discover new common ancestors!

If you already have a family tree and if you have already taken a DNA test, you can upload them all to Geneanet to easily find new relatives in our huge family tree database.

How can I use a nickname rather than real name when uploading dna? Only gives name option?

I see that my family tree is incomplete, how can we contribute with his information. Is it enough be a close familiar or is it necessary to have official documents?
