Overview

Creates ahnentafels from Pedigree Trees (plus other tools to assist with data input to Genealogical DNA Analysis Tool).

Pedigree Thief is a genealogy data gathering tool. The information gathered is intended to be imported into Genealogical DNA Analysis Tool, a program that allows you to manage your DNA matches. Please note that only English language pages are supported although the extension may function in other language sites. The extension's primary function is to read pedigree trees ( Geni and MyHeritage) and convert them to Ahnentafel. See also the included Pedigree to GedCom application that can read pedigrees from other sources. It will also read information on matches from MyHeritage as well as adding a couple of utilities to some GedMatch web pages. Before using for the first time, right-click the icon and select 'Help' from the menu. This will give guidance to setting up and using the extension. For further help join the Pedigree Thief Facebook group. --------------------------------- Pedigree Thief Change Log Version 3.0.17 updated 17 April 2024 - Fixed bug where sometimes PT would not read MyHeritage cM value if a whole number. - The date/time in PT's MyHeritage Matches menu will be removed once file created. - Oldest date/time will be pre-selected in dropdown. - MyHeritage Match is slow to 'fully' load, PT adjusted to allow for this as it can take several seconds.

Invaluable companion for GDAT. I'm perplexed to see some of the comments in other reviews. I collect DNA data and trees from GEDMatch and MyHeritage on a daily basis. The developer regularly updates the extension to accommodate frequent changes made by these services. It worked great with Ancestry until they threatened all software tools that collect or analyze data from their site with legal action. The facebook support page provides rapid support from many users and from the developer.

Was working great but has stopped reading trees on ancestryDNA (28 Jan 2020). It still says it has access but then when you click there is no activity anymore and it just hangs saying: Pedigree Thief v2.1.5.11 Reading pedigree - please wait

Ancestry have changed the code on the Pedigree page but after 2/3 days they change it back to the original code. Then, a few days later, change it back again. It's frustrating but I'm trying to adapt Pedigree Thief to work with the new coding but I can only do so when it's available. I'll release an update as soon as possible. Thanks for the 5 star review.
