So what's happening at ancestry

Today there is new records out

England & Scotland, Select Cemetery Registers, 1800-2016UK, Mechanical Engineer Records, 1847-1938New South Wales, Australia, Cowra Military Camp, Selected Personnel Photo Index, 1940-1947Australia and New Zealand, Obituary Index, 2004-2018Australia, Newspaper Vital Notices, 1831-2001Australia and New Zealand, Find A Grave Index, 1800s-CurrentAustralia, WWI Service Records, 1914-1920UK, Royal Navy Medical Journals, 1817-1857

I am really excited to mention the new ancestry dna Thrulines

Thrulines takes the best aspects of dna circles and combines them into a tidy descendants structure

That suggests the pathway or the (Thrulines) between you and your dna matches unlike dna circles it even works if you have a private tree as long as it is searchable you main Thrulines page will show you each of your ancestors in order father, mother, fathers father, fathers mother, mothers father , mothers mother etc ;if the system is able to find the potential ancestor who is not already in your tree you would have a dash box around them and it says potential ancestor what I really think is fantastic as this will help us to increase your trees and also see those matches that we haven't seen before.

Unlike dna circles you and your match needn't have both trees build back to the common ancestor

Ancestry's DNA computers can reconstruct the hypothetical link or path by stitching together information from different trees so Thrulines will be made available from 27/2/19 to any ancestry member who has ancestry dna results linked to there public tree or a private searchable one & also a tree with at least 3 to 4 generations on it

While the tool is in its better testing phase, Thrulines are free however although I anticipate it will be only available to subscribers in the long term.
