Re: Explanation of Linked Relationships

Can someone please explain, what this means:-
Family Finder - Linked Relationships

Match DateLinked RelationshipFirst Previous 1
User Image
1st Cousin First Previous 1

Is this an example or does it specifically refer to me? If so, where has it come from?

Have you uploaded a tree, or created one for your "myFamilyTree" ? If so, and if you linked this match to someone in your tree, it would show the "Linked Relationship." If not, I don't know the answer.

Before the last update to the family trees at FTDNA, you could set the relationship for a match in your list yourself (although the match would have to confirm it). This is no longer possible, because (as described above) you must now have a tree at FTDNA, and link a tested person to their position in the tree, in order to see the Linked Relationship.

The FTDNA Learning Center has a page explaining the "Family Finder - Linked Relationships Page," but some of the images there are broken. This "Linked Relationship Page" can be reached from your dashboard, as a choice in the Family Finder section.
