Tools for Genetic Genealogists
I have written a number of helpful tools for genetic genealogy and genealogy, mainly for graphing, see my tools page for more information.
I have heard good things about the all in one helper tool genome-mate but I have not yet tried it out: https://www.genomemate.org/
Here are some wonderful sites with many useful tools:
- GEDmatch – see my post on their admix and other tools plus this great post at the Legal Genealogist
- Genetic Genealogy Tools – Many many tools that will run on a PC
- DNAgedcom – which lets you download ALL your matches from 23andme or family tree DNA and also hosts:
- ADSA – Autosomal DNA Segment Analyzer for Family Tree DNA data
A few tools from other sites that I have found useful:
- David Pike’s tools for working with your raw DNA data (e.g. homozygous runs)
- Randy Majors custom google ancestor search tool
- Analyze your mtDNA haplogroup from James Lick
- DNAmatch for the Ipad – I have not tried this yet but looks extremely interesting
Plus the DNAadoption.com site has a methodology written up which explains how to use autosomal DNA to find family and they give online classes in that as well.
