This is very helpful when you are working with family members who have multiple AncestryDNA accounts. The process is fairly straightforward and should only take you about 10 minutes.

You can review the list of things each level can can do with your results and make your decision about how much control you want to give the person you are sharing with, by clicking on "Role Details" at the top. If you want your family member to be able to do everything you can do, then you will want to choose "Manager."
