How fo you link accounts on ancestry

Postby jo delaforce » Sun Feb 02, 2020 9:15 am

Hi. I have a full members account, a DNA result and my partner and their family appear in my tree on my account.

My partner is only a DNA member,

How can I link the two accounts so when my partner looks at her DNA results it will link to any relatives in our tree?
I e mailed ancestry for help, the answer I got gave me the impression they didn't understand the question.
It would be great if I could link them
Thanks

Your partner needs to go into their DNA account.
Open settings, button in top right corner.
Select sharing preferences
Press change button
She can then invite you to see her DNA results, and under "role" press manager, which will give you control of her account under the Ancestry set up.
You will then be able to link her DNA account to your tree and it will produce her own set of thrulines from your Family Tree.

Good, enjoy! But please remember thrulines are only suggestions, especially when in green. You may be linked to people in a different way.
