I was wondering if there was a possibility of adding a feature for DNA matching. For example, select 2 individuals, once selected you select option to do XDNA match. This then highlights individuals ancestors from whom the individuals inherited their "Xdna". This way you could fill out a tree for 2 individuals and identify their common ancestor via xdna matches. Does this sound like something you'd be interested in implementing. I suspect for users who use DNA as a method of tracing common ancestors would find this quite useful.

I have been adding to the individual page a "fact:"

1 FACT DNA Relationship
2 OBJE @M6937@
2 NOTE AncestryDNA shows Joseph xxx & Deirdre xxx, (granddaughter of Isabelle xxx, b. 1930, NY, d. 2018, NY,) predicted 3rd cousin (160 centimorgans across 5 segments - extremely high probability), actual 2C1R, see
2 _ASSO @I15064@

From the individual page, you can click on the individual associated or the "relationship" (if one has been identified) to see the connection.
You can find an example at
Adding a feature would be nice, but would involve a LOT of work, and would be a long time coming.
