Hi Priscilla,

Yes, you can make a Gedcom. Go out on the Internet and type: gedcom
ancestry.com OR gedcom myheritage.com

You will find links on how to make a Gedcom. Once you make it, save it
somewhere, like your Desktop. Then log into FTDNA. Click on your My Family
Tree button and upload it there (it will tell you that you are going to
override what is there, which is nothing). If you have problems, send me
the file and I will upload it for you.

Yay, you got your great-grandmother's DNA! That is wonderful! Be sure to
add her to the Azores DNA Project. We will be able to active the Parental
Matching. Over time, get any of your living grandparents and your parents
too. It helps "stack the deck" in your favor.
