Ask, and ye shall receive.
It’s great when a vendor listens to what I’m sure probably wasn’t perceived as constructive criticism.
Family Tree DNA designed a new tree some time back, but with only a Family View. Most genealogists utilize the Pedigree View, shown above, most often. A few months ago, genetic genealogists asked Family Tree DNA to redesign the tree and include a pedigree view. Today, the new tree view was added to everyone’s personal page!
The pedigree view is relevant for direct line ancestors. This screen shot is of my own tree, but this view works for any of your matches who have trees attached as well. You can see 4 generations of ancestors at once and click to expand to the next 4 generations with the right arrow at any end-of-line ancestor. You can also scroll or click to make the tree larger or smaller.
The Family View still works just fine, and if you want to see siblings or children of ancestors, other than your direct line, the Family View is what you’ll want to select.
Thank you, thank you, Family Tree DNA!!! Both for listening and for the new Pedigree View tree.
