Tree charts now available on DNA Painter

From DNA Painter (

I'm pleased to announce that trees are now available at DNA Painter for all registered users. A tree on DNA Painter is an attractive single-page summary of one person's direct ancestors that you can search and optionally share:

- Build a simple tree manually or import a GEDCOM file and choose a person from it
- Search by name or location
- Use DNA Filters to visualize the inheritance path for X, Y and mitochondrial DNA
- Tree, fan chart and text views (mobile users will see just tree and text)
- Keep track of your genetic family tree
- Store notes for each ancestor (e.g. possible surnames just beyond your brick walls!)
- Calculate how complete your tree is, and visualize any instances of pedigree collapse
- Keep your tree private, or optionally generate a secret web address as an attractive, user-friendly summary of your direct line to share with DNA matches or family members

If you'd like to see an example, check my tree out here:
(no login required)

I hope you find it useful. I would welcome all feedback.

Integration with chromosome maps will be coming later this year.
