DNA analyses have been done on two family members, for myself with AncestryDNA and MyHeritage, and daughter Louise, with AncestryDNA.

My Ancestry DNA analysis was done in April 2018 and is linked to a tree on Ancestry.com called the Wansbury Family Tree. This is only visible to Ancestry members. The results are also on GEDmatch Genesis and my resource is A388365. GEDmatch is a way of matching DNA results with others on the site, this includes results not done through Ancestry and the basic results are free. The test on MyHeritage, done earlier, under my name is also GEDmatch Genesis with the resource number of XS1719736.

Louise's results are linked to a tree on Ancestry called Mead/Gough family tree. So far the tests have picked up close relatives originally with the common names of Jones & Williams.

So far the matching analysis done against other DNA tests on Ancestry and My Heritage has revealed links not previously known to me and confirmed several very well supported links. It has also thrown up trees for persons one would expect a match to that are not supported by the DNA matching and these may end up of being even more important to sort out relationships on this web site.  The feature of Ancestry called 'ThruLines' has shown up more links that need more exploration. MyHeritage is rolling out similar tools and I am viewing a series of vidoes on YouTube for all these sites on how to explore the significance of the matches.
