Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - DNA PAINTER -

Deb­bie talks you through up­load­ing matches to the web­site

1 Get­ting started

Go to dna­painter.com and read the help files to un­der­stand how the tool works. Then reg­is­ter for a free user ac­count. You can cre­ate mul­ti­ple pro­files, but you might want to start by cre­at­ing a pro­file for your­self.

3 Re­fine the match

Name the match, and add notes if re­quired – eg the test­ing com­pany. As­sign the cer­tainty level, and name the an­ces­tral cou­ple. In­di­cate whether the match is pa­ter­nal or ma­ter­nal. Choose a colour for the seg­ments, and save.

2 Cre­ate a match

Click on ‘Paint a New Match’ to add seg­ments to your chro­mo­some map, then copy and paste the seg­ment data into the di­a­log box. Set the min­i­mum seg­ment size – the de­fault is 7cM. When you’re ready, click ‘Save Match Now”.

4 Add more matches

Re­peat the process for all of the other matches that you want to add to your chro­mo­some map. You can choose dif­fer­ent colours for each an­ces­tral cou­ple or group, and you can eas­ily add, edit or delete items.
