Each member with a particular line of descent is represented by a branch. Each branch has a unique branch ID, and a description, and, if the person has registered, will have a member name tied to the branch.
The branch line is included in most reports, and shows whether the branch represents YDNA, mtDNA, autosomal, or is tree only.
More on branches
On the Smithsworldwide trees, there are several ways to determine the status of a DNA
test. If it's simply a listed line that NO ONE has claimed, you will see, in the
Branches/DNA section on the ancestor person page, "
DNA tester yet or not listed branch". Means we are waiting for someone to come
along whose line this is to claim it and hopefully do a DNA test. If you see
Smith Branch(YDNA, FF, or mtDNA) means there is a DNA kit for that person of the
type specified (ie, YDNA, Family Finder/Autosomal or mtDNA). Click on the link
to contact that person, see the pedigree line, go to a group link(if there is a
matched group for that kit). If this is someone's line that has not done a DNA
test but has supplied a tree, you will see a branch listing and Tree-No DNA.
If you have any questions on any of this, please email
