If you did testing through FamilyTreeDNA…


Login to FamilyTreeDNA using your FTDNA supplied logon name and password

You will then be at myFTDNA

On the right hand side of the menu, look for the My Account menu. Right above it you might see a message that you have not uploaded your gedcom file yet and a link to upload it. OR you can look in My Account for for Gedcom/FamilyTree link and follow the instructions there.

When FTDNA talks about a combined gedcom, they are simply saying that instead of having one Gedcom for, say,your YDNA and another for mtDNA, just make a gedcom for your line that includes both paternal and maternal and upload it.

When you upload it, it will be available only within FTDNA and not visible to the public..

We aill also, on the Smith DNA Project, be asking you for your lineage. If you want to refer us to your uploaded gedcom, that’s fine!
