Be sure to provide your ancestral information in these two important places:
Your Pedigree on the Project's Website at WFN Each project website includes both a FAMILY PEDIGREE FORUM and a PROJECT’S PATRIARCH PAGE.
Your Ancestral Information at FTDNA: You will submit your most distant known ancestors and their locations through your myFTDNA page. The Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor you post at FTDNA will be shown on the Project's Results Page with your results as your Earliest Known Ancestor.
Although DNA testing can confirm that two test participants share a common ancestor, it must be combined with traditional genealogy to gain the maximum benefit for the genealogist.
What is a pedigree? It is the family tree that has been constructed for your family line through traditional genealogy. This is the paper trail that has been constructed through research into public records (birth certificates, death certificates, wills, deeds, ship passenger lists, marriage certificates, and other documents) and other verifying data (letters,family Bibles, diaries, and other documents).
