FYI for those of you who have participated with any Y-DNA analysis company.
In case you did not know ...
For those of you who have participated in the Family Tree DNA test, you can also upload (automatically) your Family Tree DNA data to Ysearch (www.ysearch.org).
If you have participated with another testing company, you can still load (manually) your data to Ysearch.
The advantage of having your data in Ysearch is that you can compare your data to any other person in the database.
People with data from two different companies can now compare their results with each other.
Please follow these instructions to transfer your Family Tree DNA results to Ysearch.org :
First log on to http://www.FamilyTreeDNA.com.
Enter the kit number and password information in the boxes provided at the right of the menu bar located at the top of the screen.
This will take you to your personal page. Once here, select the Y-DNA matches from the left menu. On this screen, right above the section where it lists your matches, you will see a blue lined box that outlines a paragraph of text. The title of this paragraph is "Additional possibilities for searching matches." At the end of the paragraph click on the link titled "Click here to upload to Ysearch.org."
This will take you to a Ysearch.org page titled "Create New User," this will not however, alter the Family Tree Personal page, kit number, or password in anyway. It will create a new account for Ysearch.org only.
If you choose to transfer your information to Ysearch.org, again please note, that it is a public website and others will be able to view the information you provide.
On the "Create New User" page you will see the Y-DNA results listed, scrolling down you will also see spaces to enter various genealogy information. To create a new account with Ysearch.org please make sure you enter a contact email address as well as enter a password for this account.
Once you have filled in this information click the "Save Information" button at the bottom of the screen. This will then take you to a page where it will give you your Ysearch.org user id and show you the password you entered.
I encourage all Wiatts/Wyatts to participate in Y-DNA analysis.
I encourage all Wiatts/Wyatts to input your Y-DNA info to Ysearch.
