Double Match Triangulator 1.2 - Mon, 21 Nov 2016

I’ve gone through the 1.1.99 version of DMT I created about a month ago, have made some improvements and have now produced the 1.2 release. You can find and download the new version on the DMT page.


If you don’t have more than one Chromosome Browser Results (CBR) file from FamilyTreeDNA of your own to use, I’ve made up a set of sample files you can use to try DMT. It contains 5 Chromosome Browser Results (CBR) files you can download from the DMT page. These files are the same ones I used in the examples in DMT’s help file.

I’ve learned what my goal with DMT needs to be. It is to identify which ancestor provided Person a with each DNA segment on each chromosome half. It is possible to do this with match data, as Jim Bartlett has done this manually. I just have to figure out how to get DMT to do this automatically for you and save you the 6 years it took Jim to do it.

I wanted to get DMT version 1.2 out so that it could be the entry I submit to the RootsTech Innovator Showdown. Now that it’s ready, I just have to update my submission and then make up a 1 minute You Tube video demo’ing the program. I have to complete that video prior to the December 1st entry deadline or DMT won’t qualify. I’ve never made a You Tube video before, but I’ve got a good idea of how to do it and I expect making it will be a lot of fun.

Please try DMT Version 1.2 and let me know what you think. And if you plan to go to RootsTech this year, please look for me, and put in a good word for DMT.

Hi, If you need some help with the YouTube video, you can talk to me. I have probably done over 100 by now. James Tanner

Hey, thanks James. I’ve been so busy the last couple of days that I missed your comment until just now. (See my blogpost for today - Nov 24 - as to why)

But yes, I would love some ideas how best to do it. I’m going to start getting into it. I’ll put together an email for you tomorrow and tell you what I know, and maybe you can help me down the right path.
