There have been some good adjustments to the relative matching shows at 23andMe. Lastly once I get a brand new match, I can rapidly examine them to a number of different recognized family from that first DNA comparability web page. One of many options I’ve at all times beloved, that 23andMe has however not the opposite testing corporations, is the flexibility to match my matches to one another. Seeing how a lot DNA they share can typically assist resolve how they’re associated.
I used to be shocked and delighted to see that the granddaughter of my Dad’s favourite brother acquired a DNA package for Christmas and her DNA outcomes are simply in at 23andMe. So I’ll use her package to indicate the brand new 23andMe shows. For privateness I’ll name her Nan.
After I click on DNA family below Instruments, the web page it goes to now not has two prime tabs. Maybe that confused many customers. As a substitute there’s a lengthy sentence up prime the place the previous couple of phrases are linked to the chromosome browser web page that I like to make use of. I’ve put a purple field round these phrases within the picture under of Dad’s finest matches. After all there are different higher methods to get to that browser.
When Dad will get a brand new relative, I sometimes click on on their title to see how they examine to him. That subsequent web page is the one that’s vastly improved.
The primary show exhibits a household tree fashion picture of how 23and me expects you to be associated based mostly on the shared DNA. In Nan’s case, it initially confirmed her as a primary cousin. An excellent niece shares the identical quantity of DNA with you as a primary cousin does, about 12.5% DNA . Since we all know how Nan is said, I clicked on the “Edit relationship,” indicated by my added purple field under. Then I chosen Nice-Niece within the drop down set of selections and clicked the phrase save subsequent to that. Now the tree show seems like this:
The ancestry composition comparability and itemizing of the family in widespread on this web page haven’t modified. That final characteristic signifies whether or not your new DNA relative triangulates with any of the in widespread matches as mentioned in my weblog submit on 23andme automated triangulation.
Nevertheless the order of shows on this lengthy web page has modified. Now the chromosome comparability picture, which lacks the options of the complete chromosome browser, is on the backside of the web page. Right here is the thrilling half for me. The phrases “Examine segments with extra folks” on the backside of that chromosome show enables you to create a chromosome comparability web page the place everyone seems to be in comparison with the brand new match.
I clicked on that “Examine segments with extra folks” and acquired to a DNA comparability web page which had nothing a lot on it however as quickly as I typed Munson into the field, Nan appeared as the bottom individual and I used to be in a position to click on my dad and brother over to be in contrast.
Subsequent I clicked over myself and my two second cousins from completely different great-grandparents. Then I clicked the blue submit field under all of the names within the left hand column. This acquired the five-way comparability proven under in 23andMe‘s stunning chromosome browser.
Discover that placing your mouse on a section brings up the small print in a little bit field. All of the numbers are listed on the backside of the web page, appropriate for minimize and paste, for these of us who use spreadsheets.
