ANCESTRY CELEBRATES DNA DAY
April 25th is DNA Day! View Ancestry DNA tools and features to assist your family research.
SideView Technology – This tool displays an ethnicity inheritance to show “the portions of each region you inherited from each parent”.
Chromosome Painter – As demonstrated in a past SGS presentation, the program graphically “paints” one’s DNA to show “the regions that make up your ethnicity estimate”.
Family Compare (link not included) – This feature compares your DNA results with DNA matches or others who share your Ancestry DNA results.
