DNAGedcom - cluster tool
« on: Saturday 22 December 18 17:57 GMT (UK) »
DNAGedcom client has another tool which produces clusters. Best (quickest?) results, start with default; wider results take a bit longer. Interesting to review results saved to your PC.

Anything that helps is always welcome.  :)

I'd be interested in more details too.

If you have been using DNAGedcom Client to download your Ancestry files recently, you will have noticed that it has another button "Collins's Leeds Method 3D #".This is a beta development that produces clusters based upon your Ancestry database. Using the default values revealed takes seconds. Using other values can take hours. Results are stored as 2 files, 1 x Chrome .html, 1 x Excel .xslx. The files arising from using default values are tiny; using 20/3000, for example, .xlsx can be c.25Mb.

The .html display figures "little green trees" if there is an associated Ancestry family tree and a click will lead to its display after you login to your Ancestry a/c.

DNAGedcom Client can also download data from other than Ancestry but I do not know if it produces "clusters" from other sources; it may well do.

Um, I don't know what a cluster is, and I did not test with Ancestry, nor have I heard of Gedcom client, but I will be interested to see if others find this useful, and if so, I will investigate further.  ;)

Is it the same as this:

Similar. Best to try it, especially if you already use DNAGedcom Client. CLM3D is in beta development. Possibly, a future version may work with MH, FTDNA, etc.

is it then raising similar issues regarding accessing data of people who may not have given consent?
or does it work differently?

I'm a beginner re. dna analysis so apologies if the question is not relevant for some reason, though I am interested to know how the tool works.
