The following announcement is from Family Tree DNA, the first and largest company offering genetic testing for genealogy. This highly reputable company offers the largest array of tests and is committed to supporting genealogy, first and foremost.

From Family Tree DNA to Project Administrators:


On Thursday, Ancestry.com™ announced that they will no longer sell Y-DNA and mtDNA tests.  Additionally, the results from past Y-DNA and mtDNA tests will no longer be available after September 5, 2014.
There are no guarantee on what the future holds for Ancestry.com's™ autosomal DNA offering so we strongly recommend that you tell people that tested with Ancestry.com™ to transfer their Y-DNA and Autosomal DNA to Family Tree DNA where our main focus is genetic genealogy. mtDNA is not transferable because of compatibility issues.
Family Tree DNA is committed to supporting these valuable genealogical tests today and in the future.  You should encourage anyone who has tested with Ancestry.com™ to transfer their record to Family Tree DNA as soon as possible.
