Re: My DNA Journey as a newbie.....

Helen, Your DNA will stay on Ancestry (unless you ask to have it deleted) when you download the raw data to your desktop. It does not remove it from the site. Then, it is easy to upload it to GEDmatch. I have done it a number of times for different people and would be glad to answer any questions yo...

Re: JAMES @ EDMUND.....

Hello Sonia, I see you never got an official [welcome] to [talkingscot] when you made your first post last month. It looks like Jen, the original poster, hasn't been on the forum since 2007 and probably doesn't know you have posted. We are glad you are here anyway and hope you can eventually get in ...
