DNA Painter announced that Trees are now available



DNA Painter has announced recently that trees are now available at www.dnapainter.com for all their registered users.

The developer has written that “a tree on DNA Painter is an attractive single-page summary of one person’s direct ancestors that you can search and optionally share:

– Build a simple tree manually or import a GEDCOM file and choose a person from it
– Search by name or location
– Use DNA Filters to visualize the inheritance path for X, Y and mitochondrial DNA
– Tree, fan chart and text views (mobile users will see just tree and text)
– Keep track of your genetic family tree
– Store notes for each ancestor (e.g. possible surnames just beyond your brick walls!)
– Calculate how complete your tree is, and visualize any instances of pedigree collapse
– Keep your tree private, or optionally generate a secret web address as an attractive, user-friendly summary of your direct line to share with DNA matches or family members”


Jonathan Perl from DNA Painter has also made available an example of his own tree that you can look at here:

He says that he hopes you find it useful and that he is looking for feedback.

Integration with chromosome maps are promised later this year.
