MedBetterDNA – Improve the AncestryDNA Experience

Recently I attended seminars by genetic genealogist Blaine Bettinger.  During one of his lectures he recommended MedBetterDNA.  MedBetterDNA is a Chrome extension that brings all the person notes in AncestryDNA to the match list.  It makes notes visible at the top level, so you don’t have to click down to a person to see them.

I have been using MedBetterDNA for the last few weeks, and I have to say it improves the efficiency of going through matches.  I have been adding centimorgan match size to the notes so the size of each match is visible on the first page (like it should be, Ancestry).  I suggest a notes format something like this:

215 cM – John Krogmann and Augusta Huebner – 2c1r (22 Mar 2018)

As a bonus, the notes are also all visible in the Shared Matches list.  No more clicking through to all those pages to look at your notes.  I strongly recommend MedBetterDNA to improve your AncestryDNA experience.
