The simple way to download your dna to Gedmatch.
You have been waiting for weeks and weeks. Until one day there it is in your email! You quickly open it up and scan the site. There!
All your DNA has finally been done. 74 percent this, 10 percent that. So is that it?
You can see the map with all your results, but then you wonder. Can I take this further? How about looking at it more in depth?
Well this is where Gedmatch comes in.
It takes your DNA and splices it up so that you can see exactly where you come from, what percentage and so on. It will even show you hidden DNA that didn't show up in the general map in MyHeritage, 23andme or Ancestry!
The great thing is it will also show you your Hunter Gatherer DNA and where that came from, and how it travelled across the world.
Trust me, you will be checking it out for days!
Trouble is, you are in a rush to check it out. But its not always easy to jump in and move stuff from site to site. I know it took me a while as I couldn't find a simple explanation.
Note: I used MyHeritage but this is good for all the dna sites.
Well here it is.
