NO it would not! This thread was created specifically to address deficiencies in the PEDIGREE BUILDING Feature on Ancestry.com.

When it comes to genealogy work at the very heart is pedigree building. DNA is used to verify or clarify one's pedigree work. Ancestry has purposefully departmentalized pedigree building from DNA testing and honestly their current DNA offering - the autosomal only Family Finder test- can't establish or confirm a single surname! That takes boys doing Ymarker tests.

Ancestry doesn't have any specific pedigree building inside the DNA feature.

So I did the thread on the correct board.
