Family Tree DNA Now Accepts Data Transfers from Select 23andme and AncestryDNA Files


Family Tree DNA Now Accepts Data Transfers from Select 23andme and AncestryDNA Files

Now, for FREE, you can transfer/upload your 23andMe© and AncestryDNA results to Family Tree DNA. If you want full full access to all the Family Finder features, there will be a $19 charge.

From the Family Tree DNA Autosomal Transfer page, we learn …

What is an autosomal DNA transfer?
If you have previously tested your autosomal DNA at 23andMe© or AncestryDNA, you can transfer your results to Family Tree DNA by uploading your raw data file. After transferring your file, your autosomal data is uploaded to our database, but your DNA sample is not obtained by our company.

Please note that you can only transfer the following versions:
·         23andMe© V3
·         23andMe© V4
·         AncestryDNA V1
·         AncestryDNA V2

Unfortunately, at this time, you cannot transfer 23andMe© V1 or 23andMe© V2 results.

For more information, see our Sample Access and Transfer Policy .

What do I get if I transfer my autosomal DNA?
After transferring your results, for free, you will receive a list of your autosomal matches from our database and have access to our Family Finder - Matrix. The Matrix feature allows you to select and compare the autosomal DNA relationship between up to ten of your matches at one time.

Note: Family Finder is the name of our autosomal DNA test.
After transferring, you can unlock all Family Finder features, which include the Chromosome Browser, myOrigins, and ancientOrigins for only $19.

Do read the full page for all details.
