23andMe’s New Look at Ancestry
August 1, 2012
Ancestry Overview, customers now get a quick and comprehensive summary of what their DNA tells them about themselves and their ancestors.This new dashboard summary gives you a quick outline of where your ancestors likely came from, the number of relatives you’re matched with in our database and how closely they’re related to you, as well as other hard to find ancestry gems like our Neanderthal Lab or the just added feature that tracks the top surnames for your Relative Finder matches.These changes help you dig deeper into your ancestry by giving you more tools and making the ones we already have easier to use.For example, our very popular Relative Finder tool now includes a turbo-charged upgrade that displays your matches on a world map. Family Tree. The Family Tree is easy to share with others and offers customers a way to track a lot of family facts beyond just dates, such as major life events, occupation and health information.
