NEW BENEFIT FOR MEMBERS
The ESFH website now has the facility to enable all members to attach their GEDmatch kit number to their Surname Interests.
GEDmatch is a very useful website that allows one to compare DNA raw data from different sites testing companies. Most DNA testing sites companies have the facility to download raw data. Anyone who, downloads their raw data may then upload it to GEDmatch, where it will be allocated a ‘Kit Number’. GEDmatch will then generate a match list with others. The GEDmatch chromosone browser provies a table of matching chromosones and segments that may be pasted into DNA Painter. It is then possible to see exactly where, on which chromosome, the match occurs. Several people descending from a common ancestral couple will match on the same segment of the same chromosome.
It now means that, if one finds a surname interest match with someone whose DNA is on GEDmatch, it may be immediately compared with one’s own.
Members may now add their GEDmatch kit number to their ‘Members’s Profile’ when they are logged in to the Members Area of the ESFH website.
