Hibbitt & Barnes Family History


Genealogical DNA

Me, my mum, dad, brother, maternal aunt, Harvey, our son and Harvey's sister have all taken the AncestryDNA test and our kits are also available at GEDmatch, FamilyTreeDNA and MyHeritage. My dad (surname HIBBITT) has also taken a Y-DNA test at FamilyTreeDNA. Potential relatives who have taken a genealogical DNA test, please contact me as I'd love to hear from you.

Family Tree Pedigree Charts

These charts of our direct ancestors are especially useful as a starting point for those matching our DNA but you can also use the 'Trees' link, available in the navigation bar above, to view all of the surnames in each of our families.

Cousins, please consider testing

If you are a 1st, 2nd, 3rd or even 4th cousin to me, my parents or to Harvey, it would be truly helpful if you would take the AncestryDNA test as it aids in narrowing down which side of the family to look at when working out how others match. It would be mutually beneficial as our tests would also help you to narrow down your own searches.

DNA

What is the AncestryDNA Test?

The AncestryDNA test is an autosomal or atDNA test which looks at a person's entire genome covering all lineages helping to identify matches throughout the whole family tree on both paternal and maternal sides. The AncestryDNA test also provides estimates about a person's genetic ethnicity. [Please note that I have no affiliation to Ancestry.]

Upload your Raw Data file to GEDmatch

As well as our DNA tests being available at Ancestry, our kits can also be accessed at GEDMatch. This is a free service where raw DNA data files can be uploaded from a number of testing companies, including Ancestry, with the potential of reaching even more cousins. The site also provides some nifty analysis tools. I strongly advise others to upload to GEDmatch too.

This page shows you how to download your Ancestry raw DNA data and here are some handy instructions which explain how to upload your AncestryDNA to GEDmatch.

This useful web page will help you to get started with GEDmatch. Tip: begin with the introduction and 'GEDmatch Dashboard' sections and then concentrate on the information under the 'One-to-Many Matches' and the 'One-to-One Compare' headings.
