Two questions about entering DNA stuff:

  1. How would I create a fact that shows that I have found a DNA link between two people?
  2. When I tried to enter DNA test results (using the DNA Test fact), there were only options for mtDNA and Y DNA - not Autosomal DNA. Is there another way of entering these results? Or is this a possible future addition?

Thanks for your help

 

Regards

David

To create a new fact type look under Help>Contents and search for "Design new fact types". I would stick with making Individual fact types. The Family Fact types are not always supported on other sites.

 

No way to enter Autosomal DNA results. It is on the enhancement request list. I actually don't recommend using the DNA fact right now. It will not survive a GEDCOM or drag n drop transfer. I made a custom DNA Note Fact and add the results into the notes field. You could share the DNA fact with others to see who is connected. Color-coding or adding a fact are other options too.

Thanks for these comments Renee. I have created other facts so I'll give this one a try also.

 

I was also trying to see what other users might do.
