Over the past few weeks, I've seen an uptick in the number of emails I've received regarding DNA matches. This is great, but it's reminded me of a problem with Ancestry.com's "Public" Member Trees: they are behind a pay-wall.
I then ask that the DNA match send me an invite to their tree and usually have to send them step-by-step instructions on how to do so.
I strongly suggest that if you are doing DNA testing (with a non-Ancestry.com company) that you post your tree on your DNA profile. So much easier for your matches to review your shared match! If you are with Ancestry.com, please make your family tree Public.
Now, DNA testing sites don't have the best family tree functions, so you could also upload your tree to another website. If you aren't up for really maintaining a second tree, I recommend RootsWeb. You can simply download a GedCom of your Ancestry.com tree and upload it to RootsWeb. Every now and then you can update your RootsWeb tree by doing the same thing. Then, you can send a link to your RootsWeb tree to your match. Easy for everyone.
