    Julie, just in case you didn't realize this, for the triangulation tool you need to upload his Family Finder match list - a separate thing from the raw data files you uploaded for the other tools you listed. And for the chromosome browser tool you need to download (painstakingly, 5 matches at a time) all your FF chromosome browser data and upload that. John has instructions there as to how to do all these things. Gedmatch is a wonderful resource once you get everything into place.

    Also for the GEDCOM function you need to upload his GEDCOM family tree file, if you have one.

        Another GEDmatch Question (or two?)

        I have been "tinkering" with the figures on GEDmatches "Tree relationship" tool, with a couple of close-ish matches to my son, and I don"t understand A, on the first one it says their are NO X chromosomes 0.0cM, AND B second person, although all his details are there fo me to see, it dos"nt reconise his kit no when I try to use the relationship tool?!!!!! Oooh, I do so wish I understood all this so much better............. Any help is much appreciated........ I am "train-able "?!!!!!!!!! Thank you Julie Dello.

          dello- If it is a FF kit no, put "F" before the number (such as my FTDNA kit # = 218514, but on Gedmatch, it is "F218514"). Somewhere on the Gedmatch site, there are other prefixed for other testing cos.
