WikiTree and DNA, Getting Started
WikiTree and DNA, Getting Started

Summary:  WikiTree doesn’t offer DNA testing. We don’t host DNA test results. You don’t “upload your DNA” to WikiTree. WikiTree focuses on what we do best: genealogical collaboration.

We specialize in helping you share and collaborate with your matches. We also approach things from the opposite direction.
