Autosomal Pedigree Creator

A tool that automatically creates a pedigree tree based on segment matches from a set of autosomal files. This tool will also let you know how a segment match of an unrelated genetic match is related and through whom. Supports FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry files.

Prerequisites:
Usage:
  1. Rename autosomal filenames to have meaningful names like their actual names or Father, Mother etc. No numbers just alphabets.
  2. Copy all the renamed files to a folder.
  3. Browse and select the that folder.
  4. Pedigree created. Enjoy!
Note: To get best results, make sure you have the kit along with the parents’ kits as well. If you don’t have any parents and you got a blank pedigree or you got some individuals omitted, try dump all option.
