I've been using RootsMagic for several years, and think it's great.

BUT, like many people I am researching more and more using DNA

It would be very helpful for me to have a visual reference to family members I have proven DNA links to

This could be something like being able to put a small DNA icon in the name boxes on the pedigree view, next to where you currently show a problem icon.

As more and more people use DNA for research, this could be a useful addition for everyone

Regards

I just ordered a kit from Ancestry which is autosomal in the hope of finding links to a missing ancestor as one close relative was adopted. I did get a test before but I think I'm depending more on being added to the Ancestry database and finding links rather than finding links in Rootsmagic. It also seems all these vendors have differing data sets and results are not easily transferable, I'm hoping I'm wrong but it would be nice if I found some clues and possible links to this missing ancestor.

Have you thought of adding a Reference Number fact and displaying it after a person's name. (Tools>File Options>General>Number to display after name.) That way you can see whatever code you established for tracking DNA results.

I have long wished for this funktion as well. I work a lot with DNA-research. Just as you say, some kind of little icon in the pedigree view. It would be immensely helpful.

Confirming this is on the enhancement request list.
