DNA Match Labeling – Chrome Browser Add-On for AncestryDNA Users*

*Disclaimer: This Chrome browser add-on was NOT developed by Ancestry.com or AncestryDNA.

DNA Match Labeling adds colored dot labeling to AncestryDNA matches. DNA Match Labeling adds a table of eight colors (red, blue, green, yellow, pink. orange, gray, and black) at the top of each page, where the user can enter text defining the color. For example, in the field for the red dot, the user can enter text such as "John Watanabe," "John Watanabe - Paternal Grandfather," or any other text.

If a user admins or views DNA results for several people in an account, each person will have a separate table. 

To LABEL a match with a color: (1) click on the empty white dot next to a match's picture or male/female icon (underneath the gray or gold star on the far left of a match); (2) select a color from the pop-up color selection tray.

To CHANGE an existing color: (1) click on the colored dot next to the match's picture or male/female icon (underneath the gray or gold star on the far left of a match); (2) select a NEW color from the pop-up color selection tray.

If the match has not yet been viewed, you will see the AncestryDNA blue dot (indicating an unviewed match) with the DNA Match Labeling dot underneath.

This extension is provided as-is, and by downloading the extension you agree that there are no guarantees or warranties for its use.

It was developed to use on tests done on AncestryDNA (currently only works on Ancestry.com accounts, but it’s in the process of being added to those non-U.S. AncestryDNA testers who use Ancestry that use an URL extension other than .com; i.e., .ca, .uk, .au). It’s a beta product. Thank you to Blaine Bettinger, Ph.D., J.D., The Genetic Genealogist, for making this possible. He is also part of the Facebook group, Genetic Genealogy Tips & Techniques (it’s a closed group so you will need to ask to join to see more), which is where more information can be found. I found it on a different Facebook group that referenced Genetic Genealogy Tips & Techniques. Blaine also has https://dna-central.com/, a new DNA information site that costs $99.00/year or $9.99/month and has a wealth of information. It’s not on DNA Painter, but expect it may show up there soon: https://dnapainter.com/tools

I haven’t played with DNA Match Labeling as I use Firefox as my primary web browser, but it looks promising and I will be taking it out for a spin in the near future.
