ANCESTRY CONTINUES TO IMPROVE ANALYSES TOOLS

THRULINES TO REPLACE DNA CIRCLES, JULY 1

Ancestry will retire DNA Circles on July 1 replacing Circles with Thrulines. Thrulines offers a more complete overview for kinship analysis between members and their DNA matches. Members can now see how many DNA matches they have from each ancestral grandparent, through each branch, or line, stemming from the grandparent.  Matches are more visually clear in Thrulines which allows members to more quickly recognize kinship and analyze new matches.

CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT TO ANCESTRY HINTS

You may have noticed recent changes to Ancestry’s Hints feature. Continued improvements to Hints allows members to better analyze their Hints before adding them to a tree. The current change gives context to each Hint, allowing members to view and compare data already in their tree with the data provided in the new Hint.

Beginning in July, Hints will contain questions instead of the current, “Yes/No/Maybe.” These questions will relate to the quality and accuracy of the new information. This feedback will allow Ancestry to continue to make improvements to the Hints feature and provide more relevant Hints.

Hopefully, more members will use these tools to analyze new Hints before adding potential misinformation to their Ancestry tree!
