And another tool for DNA and genealogy...

Have you heard about DNAPainter? This new tool is not only useful; it's fun and easy to use, and it provides a visual presentation of your very own chromosome map that shows, in full color, which ancestor passed which segment(s) of DNA down to you. A caveat: It can only be used if you have tested with FamilyTreeDNA or 23andME or have uploaded your DNA data to Gedmatch. Ancestry and others do not provide the data needed, but you can join Gedmatch and FamilyTreeDNA for free and then reap the benefits of DNAPainter (as well as all the other tools provided by Gedmatch and FTDNA).
