New Geneanet DNA Matches Option: View Your Common Ancestors

Posted by Jean-Yves on Jul 2, 2020

You can now quickly and easily view your common ancestors through your Geneanet DNA matches!

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, click “View relationship” to instantly view your common ancestors.

You are redirected to a new page. Just click “View” to continue.

The relationship shows up and you can click any name to view the family tree.

The matches are updated every time one of these family trees is updated.

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.

What do the different colored dots mean to the left of your DNA matches…

Answer from Geneanet: Please read

As a paid member from the US, Geneanet is one of the best sites for DNA matches in Europe. All my matches are 4th cousin or greater and so far have not found a family tree with a common ancestor. Hard to even find common surnames. Cannot find a feature to show other DNA matches in common among my Geneanet DNA matches. Is this a policy of Geneanet or an EU regulation or a future software update?

Answer from Geneanet: Many thanks for your appreciation. Please read
