WikiTree

From ISOGG Wiki

WikiTree.com is a free and shared family tree website with DNA features that balances privacy and collaboration. Community members privately collaborate with close family members on modern family history and publicly collaborate with other genealogists on deep ancestry. Since all the private and public profiles are connected on the same system this process is helping to grow a single, worldwide family tree that will eventually connect us all and thereby make it free and easy for anyone to discover their roots.

DNA Features

Y Chromosome (Y-DNA)

The genetic genealogy company can be selected along with the Y-DNA haplogroup, number of markers tested, YSearch ID, and Family Tree DNA kit number or AncestryDNA user name. Comments (e.g. haplogroup clarification, additional SNP testing, confirmed lines) and external links can be entered in a note field.

Entering a male's YSearch ID will automatically link his direct paternal line to his haplotype in YSearch.

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)

The genetic genealogy company can be selected along with the mtDNA haplogroup, test type (HVR1, HVR1 and HVR2, or Full Sequence), MitoSearch ID, and Family Tree DNA kit number or AncestryDNA user name. Comments and external links can be entered in a note field.

Entering a person's MitoSearch ID will automatically link that person's direct maternal line to their mtDNA result in MitoSearch.

Autosomal DNA (auDNA, aka atDNA)

Members with auDNA results (from 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and Family Tree DNA's Family Finder) can input which companies they tested with, and their Family Tree DNA kit number or AncestryDNA user name. WikiTree automatically displays other atDNA tested persons who are within 4th cousins of each other. Members who have uploaded to www.gedmatch.com can also input their GEDmatch ID.

X Chromosome (X-DNA)

Seven generations of a person's ancestors who could have contributed to a person's X chromosome can be automatically displayed:

Seven generations of a person's descendants who could have inherited portions of that person's X chromosome can also be automatically displayed:
