The Library of Matches is a new tool by Cody Ely with example shared segments for different known matches. This visualization of segments could help you distinguish between different relationship possibilities.
I recently added focus mode, a new feature in WATO that I hope will help you.
Bucketing is a new DNA Painter tool that can help you subdivide your segments based on match or segment lists of other relatives.
Geneanet recently launched some enhancements to their DNA tools. Here I explain how you can bulk import Geneanet segment data into DNA Painter.
For my second guest post, I’m pleased to welcome Rachel King, a professional genealogist based in London, England. Here, Rachel shares some examples demonstrating how she uses segment data in her work.
Here’s a summary of new features at DNA Painter that I’ve released in the last couple of weeks.
I’m pleased to release a new tool today called the Shared cM Investigator. Intended for those who have siblings tested, but not the parents of those siblings, the tool uses segments and a simple mathematical equation to estimate how much DNA the parent of those siblings might have shared with the match.
For this first guest post, I’m pleased to welcome Lara Diamond, whose popular blog Lara’s Jewnealogy has been running since 2013. Endogamy has a very visible effect on chromosome mapping, as Lara explains very clearly
I recently became an ambassador for the Hidden Branch, a group that advocates for young genealogists. I’m really pleased to be involved in the endeavour of encouraging take-up of our hobby and helping the next generation get involved. I got some interesting responses from group members when I asked about their background, interests and experience with DNA.
As part of your ongoing DNA work, you might sometimes like to merge chromosome maps together or use data from one map in another. In this post I recap on the different ways you can duplicate and copy data between chromosome maps.
