If you have had your DNA tested at AncestryDNA, you know that your DNA match list is expanding every day, and there are often changes to your DNA ethnicity results that can leave you scratching your head. Add to that the abundance of tools to integrate your genetics and your genealogy, and you can quickly become lost in a sea of clicks and colors. Thankfully, there are a few tips and tricks that you can start using today that can help you cut through the excess and get right to the heart of the work of finding your ancestor. We will cover DNA ethnicity results, as well as ThruLines, and match list features like relationship estimates and match groups.
