About this webinar

This short TechZone presentation will explain how to use Ancestry’s ‘Connected DNA Matches’ tool to link DNA matches to their entries on a linked tree. The tool can be used to attach DNA match icons to chosen DNA matches, produce an instant link to the pedigree of those matches as built into your own tree and it provides a useful additional organisational option for your Ancestry DNA matches.

    Thank you, Michelle. I’m just wondering about how this would work for other kits? I manage some kits that are not the same generation as me but we are all linked to the same tree – should I put the relationship as the relationship the match is to me or to them? Lorraine

    I didn’t even know Ancestry had this feature. Thank you!

      I have done this in the past but there is a problem when my match list name isn’t their real name as I have it in my tree. I have the green check mark on the tree but not on the match list since the names don’t match. Somehow I do have a note (from prior work) that they are the same person. Any suggestions?
