Gather data from your new found relatives to fill in the missing branches of your family tree. If you already use a family tree service, easily import your tree (GEDCOM file).

Enhance your experience with your family.

Enrich your results by inspiring family members to join 23andMe. The more family members you have in the database, the more comprehensive the picture of your ancestry. If you are female, sharing results with a close male relative can provide you with your paternal lineage.
