My mom and I have both done our DNA on Ancestry, and we each have our own tree. My tree is ridiculously large (55,437 people as of today), since it includes all of our cluster research, while Mom's tree only includes her direct ancestors. The smaller tree with just direct ancestors is easier to download, and it helps focus attention ON the direct ancestors (and not on interesting collateral relatives LOL).
The decision to include, or leave out, non-direct ancestors can definitely affect how Ancestry displays its AncestryDNA Insights:
|My "DNA Circles" includes Joshua Whitehead and Sarah Avery, and correctly gives their relation to me. Notice Samuel Avery and Mary Thornton, parents of Sarah Avery, on this page as well.|
