Connecting multiple DNA kits to trees

The new function that has been released this week to report shared names and locations when both kits are linked to trees is very useful. However, this leads me to some questions. I currently have one tree and manage several DNA kits on my account. I only have my own kit connected to a tree.
Is it possible to:
1. Connect more than one kit to the same tree?
2. Add more trees to my account and connect individual kits to individual trees?

1. Yes, if the persons are in your family tree. Go to https://en.geneanet.org/dna/upload/ to upload a new DNA data file and select the person in your tree.

2. You can have multiple family trees in your account but this will be in fact multiple separated branches. You can have only one family tree root so the automatic matching, the email alerts and the DNA relationships calculation will not work for these separated branches. You'd better add and link these branches to your own family tree.

Thank you Jean-Yves,

I am not sure if I fully understand your answer to number 2. The other kits I want to connect to my tree have relationships to me ranging from my brother to the wives of my biological relatives. When I read your response it sounds as though all of the matches will be calculated with me as a root.
When a match for my brother's wife views her profile are they going to see her part of tree (Italian) and their potential connections to her or are they going to see my part of the tree (English) and be told that there are no names in common?

Regards
Lynda

The common names and places must be in the ancestry ot the person you have linked to your DNA data.

I think maybe I am not asking my question clearly, so I will try again. I have my own DNA kit linked to my profile in my tree. I understand that part and how you handle the reporting of shared names and locations. I also manage DNA kits for 9 other people and I have uploaded those. I am trying to work out how to get the same type of tree comparison for them as I get for myself. If I connect them all to my tree will it work out the connection to their matches correctly and display the relevant part of the tree to their matches or will it try to calculate everything using me as root and conclude that they have no names and locations in common with the people they match?

Regard
Lynda

Thank you. I will give that a try and get back to you if I have any more questions about it after I have deleted and reconnected the kits.

I have now tried this and it does not seem to work for people who are not biologically related to the person who is the root of the tree. I added my brother’s wife and her first cousin and their common ancestors. I connected both kits to the correct profile in my tree. When I look at their match to each other no common surnames are being reported.

So I'm new, lol
Can I upload more than one Kit (ie: ancestry.com and ftdna.com) to the same root person (me) ?
Will your software parse both ? Mostly common but some hits are on one, not the other.
Thanks in advance, ...jd

Yes you can upload and link more than one DNA data to the same individual in your family tree, and each of these DNA data will be parsed.
