What is the Known Relationship column?
On the Family Finder Matches page, the Known Relationship column allows you and your matches to set (assign) your relationship based on traditional genealogical records. It is a two step process; once one of you has set the relationship the other person will need to confirm it. To confirm a known relationship: • Login to your myFTDNA account. (http://www.familytreedna.com) • Go to Family Finder Matches on the left navigation panel. • Find your relative in the Matches table. • Click on the Assign button, in their row. • Select the relationship from the dropdown menu. • Click the Save button. Once you have assigned a known relationship, you should let your relative know so that they may confirm it.
