I just figured this one out, and couldn't wait five more days to share it with you. Especially since those holiday gifts of DNA kits will be making their appearance on Ancestry.com in the coming weeks.
You know how you open your DNA page and find a promising match to your kit only to discover the other person has no family tree to compare with yours? Sometimes there is a way around that. Click on the kit anyway, and the box below will appear--
Just because the match has no tree attached to their DNA kit doesn't necessarily mean they don't have one floating around somewhere on Ancestry which they have neglected to attach. That's not always true, but in some cases it is. See the blue box above? If there is a tree, you can find it by clicking there. If there isn't, the box will be green and prompt you to suggest to the other party they add one. Slick advertising huh?
Wishing everyone a wonderful, discovery filled New Year and many DNA matches!
