New DNA tests added to Legacy Family Tree

We added so much to our latest Legacy 7.0 update that I forgot to write about the new DNA tests we added. As you know, Legacy's DNA section lets you record the results from the DNA tests that you have ordered for your ancestors. New companies and tests have been created since we first released the DNA section. Version adds the following new tests:

  • Ancestry's Paternal Lineage Test (Y-Chromosome 33)
  • Ancestry's Advanced Paternal Lineage Test (Y-Chromosome 46)
  • DNA Tribes 15-Marker Standard Kit test
  • DNA Tribes 21-Marker Premium Kit test
  • FamilyTree DNA Y-DNA59 59 Marker Test
  • Oxford Ancestors Y Clan analysis 15-marker test

If you are aware of other DNA tests that are not yet included in Legacy, please let us know. mtDNA tests will be added in a future update.

How to record a DNA test

  1. Start Legacy and open the Individual's Information screen for the person of interest.
  2. Click on the DNA button Dna.
  3. In the Available Tests section, highlight the desired test and click on the Add button.
  4. Record the results in the table.

I've been waiting so long for this and now its here! Ancestry's Paternal Lineage Test (Y-Chromosome 33)................Yahoo! Good job Legacy! And thank you "Sherry" at Customer Support Millennia Corporation.

How about including the National Geographic Genographic Project info.

Clarence - we've tried contacting them to obtain the data necessary to add to Legacy. If you have information, would you mind getting in touch with us? That's really help us, thanks!

From Family Tree DNA's front page http://www.familytreedna.com/

"Family Tree DNA provides the tests for this partnership between the National Geographic Society, IBM and the Waitt Family Foundation. Click here to learn more about the Genographic Project."

Therefore, the National Geographic Society's "Genographic Project" uses the same DYS markers as Family Tree DNA does for all their surname projects, so Legacy has us covered on this issue.

Family Tree DNA allows testers from both surnames and the "Genographic Project" to join one another and share information.

I have had a few people from the "Genographic Project" join my Crow(e) project and have had some new matches for the Crow(e) testers from both the surname and the "Genographic Project."

Kind regards, Phil
