Gedmatch now links to WikiTree

Not exactly new, as this has been in place for months, but I am just getting to this now.  I do have some entries at WikiTree although I use Geni.com more.  I can see I need to add some Gedmatch numbers for some kits I manage.  I just did this, and if you haven't already added your Gedmatch #s to WikiTree, I recommend doing this ASAP. It only takes a few minutes.

I do try to figure out a connection prior to emailing them, and if I can see a family tree showing ancestors on WikiTree this makes me able to send a first email with more details than the standard "we are a match, wanna figure out how?" 

Also, please link your DNA to Geni.com.  They are much larger than WikiTree and we have a better chance of already having an established path there.  I do try to keep my WikiTree up-to-date but there are only so many hours in the day!
