I have recently been getting contacts about genetic matches and am trying to find where links might be. The Ancestor Report is very useful to send to people as it focuses just on the family names at the 'top' of the tree. However it is in family order which makes comparison with other lists more of a challenge.
I thought of attempting an edit of the report writer to create a list in surname order - and then thought better of that. I only have two reports and so can edit the report.
Do others think such an alternative would be useful?

Could you include some screenshots of those reports?  I'm not familiar with them.




I've found the Family Tree Visualization Tool created by Brad Lyon to be very helpful.  I export a GEDCOM from Genopro, and import it into the tool.  Here is a blog about the current features in the tool:

I can start with myself (or whoever the test subject is), show all their ancestors ... click on a possible common ancestor, and then display all of their descendants.

I find this also makes it easier to see who you have to test for Triangulations.

This is part of the standard report produced from GenoPro's Ahnentafel Report, which gives a list of direct ancestors, arranged by generation. When I prepared this recently I used my alternative file where I have only listed direct ancestors, instead of my main file which is spread across several Genomaps. Should have realised that the report can cover multiple displays - as this one does.
I have had to edit the file to produce the names in surname order when comparing with other people's DNA results. I have tested with Ancestry and also loaded the results to GedMatch. From contacts on these sites I am trying to find links. Ancestry family trees can show a list of all names (search a name on the tree display) and taking surnames off my list it can be searched.
Early days and only found one definite match so far - and to be honest the match was identified from the other side, which got me started here. However I did find where the link is in this case
