I have just gone back in and have opened my TG. I am completely blown away by the way it is and can immediately see a surname which is where I think we connect. I have been looking for many years for my birth father as I was adopted at three months old. I had no idea that it would be as good as this. It’s amazing! You are a star to have devised such an awesome DNA tool.

Today I solved a large triangulated group on my X chromosome, with the help of your DNA family. Before, I knew which of my great-grandparents had given me this segment, now I know its two more generations back, and have identified 3 new distant cousins.
The way your DNA family collects the information by triangulated group (TG) is really helpful, and clearly presented. You can see which are the strongest and most promising matches. Seeing the ancestral surnames connected to each TG is particularly useful. If I see a match with 4 surnames, those are probably their grandparents. I can often pick them up in a census or obituary, and trace back till they connect with my ancestors.

YourDNA.family is a wonderful application that has helped drive my research. I love how the app does all the heavy lifting of organizing all the data I need into Triangulation groups, so that I can focus on the fun part of figuring out how cousins connect into my ever expanding family tree.

I enjoy working with YourDNA.Family because it allows me to focus on my genealogical research while the program automates repetitive functions that would otherwise take months to accomplish!
It has helped me to confirm cousins on my paternal and maternal sides, ending the guess work that has puzzled me for years!

Frequently Asked Questions
My name is Andreas West, the founder of yourDNA.family (more about me here).
I started programming this web app as I was frustrated with the other solutions on the market and had very little free time to work on my hobby, DNA genealogy. I want to leave the boring, repetitive work to computers and instead focus my time on working with my DNA cousins to identify our common ancestors.
I also want to make it a lot easier for everyone to maximize the benefits from their DNA test, without the need for a PhD in Biology or years of studying this complicated topic. With your support, I hope I will succeed in this mission.
