Smith DNA Official Project-All Locations-A FamilyTreeDNA Project
|Uploading your gedcom file to FamilyTreeDNA|
If you did testing through FamilyTreeDNA…
Login to FamilyTreeDNA using your FTDNA supplied logon name and password
You will then be at myFTDNA
On the right hand side of the menu, look for the My Account menu. Right above it you might see a message that you have not uploaded your gedcom file yet and a link to upload it. OR you can look in My Account for for Gedcom/FamilyTree link and follow the instructions there.
When FTDNA talks about a combined gedcom, they are simply saying that instead of having one Gedcom for, say,your YDNA and another for mtDNA, just make a gedcom for your line that includes both paternal and maternal and upload it.
When you upload it, it will be available only within FTDNA and not visible to the public..
We aill also, on the Smith DNA Project, be asking you for your lineage. If you want to refer us to your uploaded gedcom, that’s fine!(6/4/2014 Views 164)
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.
