My Appearance and Sensory Traits: Coming soon.

This is the extent of what is provided by Ancestry.com for the dna portion of one’s personal results.  Ancestry does provide a great deal of information you may review for a better understanding of the science behind your results. 

Other services for AncestryDNA:

  • DNA Traits – What your genetic makeup could reveal about your appearance and sensory traits.
  • DNA Matches (if you opt-in) –  This feature connects you with your extended dna familial matches. 
  • DNA Circle (optional) – Allows you to create a family tree that is accessible by the public.
  • ThruLines -(optional) – Uses Ancestry tree to suggest how you may be related to your DNA matches through a common ancestors.
  • Personal Discoveries Project (in βeta) – Personal surveys which will provide Ancestry data for future trait reports.
  • Spotify – Recently AncestryDNA has added the option to have a Spotify account.  I am unsure if this partnership grants customers access to just the basic account or offers premium features.  Or even connects to preexisting accounts.

Ancestry also has a very active online community that exchanges helpful information if you wish to explore your family’s public records through their original document service plan.
