In November I blogged about Visualizing DNA tested Descendants of an Ancestor Couple. For those who have tested at AncestryDNA, the ThruLines™ tool that Ancestry introduced this past week just made this so much easier. It's not completely automated and even if it were I'd still need to follow good research guidelines but that is a given with any tool or resource.

From WATO Tool at DNApainter.com
Below is a table which shows the Putman/Tyler Children and how many of their children are represented among my families DNA test matches. The table and the chart I have built using WATO(www.dnapainter.com) also includes any Putman/Tyler descendants that I've identified at other testing sites.

I really like viewing the descendants in List View See the example below of my branch of the Putman/Tyler Descendants

When you are using ThruLines™ and see an error in the way it's working please provide feedback using the Feedback pop-up which is on the bottom right when you are viewing a page in ThruLines™ view. I've found and reported several. Feedback reports of errors are necessary to improve the performance and ensure that it works as it's intended.
