Upgrading your One-to-Many matching with Tier 1 – A Segment of DNA

Are you a tier one member of Ged match?
Then if so you have some added functionality in the one-to-many tool. Howdy I’m Andy Lee with Family History
Fanatics and this is a segment of DNA. Be sure to subscribe to our channel and
click on that bell if you want to be notified about upcoming episodes. I’ve
already made a video about the one-to-many tool that is available to
everybody who has a free account or the tier one account but, if you are a tier
one member there are some additional features in the one-to-many tool that
you should know about. So that you can use them to maximize your efficiency in
genealogy research. Now over here on the ged match web site when we scroll
down we’ll see that in the DNA applications there are two one-to-many
tools. And those are the ones that I went over. The one-to-many DNA comparison is the old tool from before the gedmatch Genesis that provides some of the data.
The one-to-many beta has a lot more functionality for it. And then if we
continue to scroll down we see that under tier 1 there’s also two tools.
Although they’re almost the same there’s just a couple of slight differences. So
let me go over the one that’s not labeled beta because they’re labeled
beta and no beta and then we’ll go over the beta one. So this is the one-to-many
comparison without the beta and what we can see is we enter our kit number and
then we can change some things and we’re going to search. So what is the
difference between this and the others well I’ll show you a couple of things
and then we’ll go over to the other one. Now first off you’ll notice that some of
these are highlighted and what that indicates is that indicates that they
are a tag group and so the non beta version of one-to-many always has all
the tag groups showing that’s the first difference. The second difference really
is that as we scroll over we see that there is autosomal DNA and
X-DNA information and then that’s it. There is not anything that gives us the
source of that or how much overlap. And that really is the difference between
these two tools is this has all the tag groups already listed and it doesn’t
have the source and the overlap information. So let’s switch over to the
beta and I’ll show you that information I’ll show you also a couple of the bits
of functionality that are available in the tier one that are not available in
the free version. So here we are at the one-to-many tool that is listed as beta.
Now we’re going to put in our kit and we can start our search. Now I said before
that the non beta automatic has tag groups you’ll notice up here that one of
the options you can actually choose is tag group so I’ll show you that here in
just one second. But then the other thing from the non beta is it didn’t have
these final two columns. It didn’t have the source and it didn’t have the
overlap columns. Now the source column just tells you what company that test
was from the overlap tells you how many snips it shares in common with the match
and so that can give you an idea of how reliable that match information may be.
So right off we see that there’s a little bit of difference in the
information that’s being provided but for the most part the important
information is there. Now there is some functionality here that is not on the
non beta version. First off you are allowed to change your overlap cutoff
and so for instance if you don’t want to see things that are less than 100,000 or
200,000 you can change that information or if you wanted to see things that are
all the way down to zero you can change that as well. So you can just click on the drop down menu and change this let’s say to a
hundred thousand and then when I search it it’s going to give me a new list that
just has more than one thousand in the overlap. So I scroll down
here I can see on my overlap hey all these are either 2na which means they’re
from the old gedmatch or they are more than a hundred thousand. Next is the
amount of matches that it shows you now I believe the default in the free
version was fifty but you’re allowed to go up to three thousand well in the tier
one you are allowed to go to however many you have. Now I’m going to go and
I’m gonna select a maximum one hundred thousand I don’t think that I have that
many I believe I only have about twenty twenty-five thousand matches. Next I want to show you about the tag groups. Now tag groups is something that you can have
none you can have all or you can have one what I want to do is I want to show
you each one of these because they’re a little bit different. Now the none is the
default next not showing any tag groups the all is what the default of the other
one too many matching tool is and so if I go and I click on my search for that
what you can see as you can see that there are some different tag groups here
that are just highlighted by these different colors. One thing with the all
if you’ll notice is that it is going to have all the tag groups for that person.
So you can actually see that this person right here JL-m3 is part of two
different tag groups and so their information shows up twice and that’s
one thing just to be aware of as you’re looking at your match list because you
don’t want to think that you have more matches in some particular area when
really all it is is the same person they’ve just been tagged in different
groups so just be aware of that on all. Now if you want one this information up
here says it’s going to show only one row for each person and it’s going to
just do a random tag group. So I’m gonna go down and there is JL who has a
green and a mustard yellowish color when that on one I’m going to search and I
can see that JL shows up as the green. So that is the one taboo.
Now the other great thing about the tier 1 is we’re able to use this select
column. Now if you remember on the one-to-many tool for the free version
you had the select column but you weren’t allowed to actually click these
boxes well now I can go through and I can click these boxes. And what that’s
going to do is that’s going to put a lot of kits over into the visualization
options so when I click on that it goes over to the visualization options, and
this is also called the multiple kit analysis, and I’m gonna have some other
videos that go through a lot of these different things but this is very useful
for taking a look at different aspects of a group of people’s DNA and you can
quickly select that right from the match list on the one-to-many. There are more
features of the one-to-many that are the same thing that you can find on the free
version so if you’d like to learn how to use some of the features of this tool
then go and review that video on the one-to-many. If you have any
questions about the tier 1 one-to-many put it in the comments below and I’ll
try to answer it and if you like this video be sure to give it a thumbs up and
share it with all your friends.
