Default My DNA results are back!

That didn't take long.....about 3 weeks.

Drum roll...…….

I am:

England, Wales & Northwestern Europe 84%
(Mostly Southern England)

Germanic Europe 7%

Norway 4%

Ireland and Scotland 3%

France 2%

At the moment I don't have a tree connected to my account (the account is a new one as it's OH who has the Ancestry sub)


Can I upload a tree without a sub? If not, I read something about having someone else managing my matches, so OH could do that.

Any advice please, regarding uploading a tree?

I should think it would be better for you to have your OH managing your DNA because then his sub can be used to view the matches and their trees etc.

And the way to do that is click on DNA to get to your main DNA page, then Settings, then scroll down to the bottom where it shows "DNA Result Access", click on "Add a person" and then you can put in your OH's username and select "Manager" instead of "Viewer".

But in answer to the other part of the question, you can upload a tree without a sub, but again, it would be better to put the tree on your OH's account so that the sub can be used if you want to search from the tree, look at hints, add records, etc. You could make it private and give access to selected people (for instance, DNA matches who contact you or who you contact) if you don't want to make it public.

Agree with Kite with getting your OH to manage the account, at least to start with, though I would have the tree in your name and simply let him edit it.

It depends on whether you want to contact other people, or if you want them to contact you.

A private, linked tree means others can pick up your Monty surname (but have to do a lot of work to discover which Monty). A private unlinked tree makes it even more difficult for them to find your Montys via DNA matches.

A public linked tree means you can spot your mutual surnames. Best Mate's tree is currently public and out of 23k matches, only 3 people have contacted us in six months.

Thanks for your responses which I will probably have to read a couple more times after I've eaten my dinner!

Will let you know how I get on.

*whispers* I think Merry actually uses the account which is in her OH's name.

Right, just to remind myself, I've done this bit (thanks Kate!). Just waiting for OH to accept his invitation...….
