Free transfers of DNA

If you have tested at Ancestry or at 23andMe (v. 3 only), you may now transfer your results to Family Tree DNA for free. You will be able to view the top twenty matches at FTDNA and, to unlock the rest of your matches and begin communicating with them, the cost is only $39.

As you probably know, Family Tree DNA is the leader in genetic genealogy and continues to offer and expand the advanced tools required to triangulate and thereby prove a lineage. For more information, visit this blog.

Ancestry's Irresponsible Behavior

Ancestry is the new leader in the "burn the records" mentality! They followed through with their threat to dewstroy their Y-DNA and mtDNA databases. It's shocking and incomprehensible. Read this blog and the accompanying comments http://dna-explained.com/2014/10/02/ancestry-destroys-irreplaceable-dna-database/.

And take heed. Do not trust one company with your precious DNA, least of all Ancestry.
