GedTree free downloads of xDNA charts

  • GedTree is celebrating their recent launch with free downloads of male and female xDNA inheritance charts. These charts will show which lines the xDNA can be inherited through-it’s not necessary to have done any DNA test prior to downloading this chart. Also, Ancestry and MyHeritage currently sell only the autosomal DNA tests (atDNA), which test inheritance from all lines. If you’ve tested autosomal DNA (atDNA) only, this is still a worthwhile chart to download as a reference if later you test to trace certain family lines. This chart links to a blog from Blaine Bettinger, explaining xDNA inheritance.
