DNA Gedcom: Getting Started with DNA GEDCOM

The first step in using RootsFinder's DNA Tools is to  Create Your DNA Profile and specify that you which DNA source you will be using. RootsFinder doesn't process raw DNA data. We use spreadsheets created from your DNA data. You will need to import your raw data to GEDmatch, or use DNAgedcom which reads the reports created by Ancestry, 23andMe, FamilyTreeeDNA and MyHeritage to create your spreadsheets. After you have created a Profile, you copy and paste those spreadsheets into RootsFinder.
