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.

  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.
