Ancestry Labs – Exciting New Tools!

For those of us who have tested on Ancestry DNA, there are some new Beta Tools available to help with your DNA research.

One of the two beta tools launched today are “MyTreeTags” which enable you to add tags to people in your tree with tags such as “Currently Researching, Completed, Unverified, Brick Wall”.  Not only does this help you keep track of your own research, but informs people who are viewing your tree the status of each ancestor.

The other tool is the one I am most excited about!  There is now the option to sort DNA matches into specific custom groups, as well as more ways to filter your matches (unlinked/no trees, public trees, new matches etc).

To access and enable these tools, the Ancestry Lab can be found under the Extras tab at the top of the Ancestry webpage.
