|Editing your profile or kit info on the Smith DNA site|
When you are registered and logged on to the Smith Official DNA Project on the http://www.smithsworldwide.org website, you have done so in order to work on your tree. You also have profile information such as your name, email, etc that you may want to change from time to time. At this present time to change a photo, you need to send to the admins and we will post for you but we do plan to add this as a feature in the future. Also, on the DNA side, you may want to add some additional information related to your DNA test or membership on the project. You can get to these editing screens from the front page of the site or from most menus within the site. Here’s where to look
On the front page of the site
From other menus
When you click “Edit Profile”, you find this screen
You see you can change some fields and then click SAVE CHANGES. You can also go to EDIT YOUR DNA PAGE which will take you to the following page. Notice that you can change your early ancestor description (255 chars max), the migration path (format country>State>state>state, etc. You can also put in your confirmed haplogroup (which follows a convention of X-XXX) If you wish to put in your list of confirmed snps, you may copy and paste them in here, they will show up on your kit page. You can also copy and past the mtDNA MHVR1 and/or MHVR2 info which shows up on the kit pages for those who have tested mtDNA. If you have found thru comparing autosomal segments and trees that you have a definite match with a particular tree, you may put a comment about it in the autosomal box. Finally, if you have a theory you want to test or would like some line in particular to test to compare with, please put it in Most Wanted. Fields you cannot modify include the haplogroup or the markers.

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
