Here’s How You Can Transfer Data from Your 23andMe, AncestryDNA, or MyHeritage DNA Test to Family Tree DNA

In the past week, you may have read articles or heard the news that Family Tree DNA has been working with the FBI to solve violent crimes. There have been quite a few heated discussions within the DNA and genealogy online communities as to the privacy issues involved, as well as whether or not proper notice was given to current FTDNA customers.

Here at DNA Bargains we don’t have an opinion as to the move by Family Tree DNA. We believe every customer who purchases a personal DNA test kit should read and understand ALL policies at a DNA vendor’s site. These often include the Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and the Law Enforcement Guide, among others. In addition, those who have purchased a DNA test kit, or who have uploaded their DNA data to a site, are responsible for proper management of access to their data.

Many genealogists, family historians and DNA testers have expressed an interest in assisting law enforcement agencies by uploading their DNA test data to Family Tree DNA. If you want to upload your own data, click below or keep reading.

If you are ready to transfer your 23andMe, AncestryDNA or MyHeritage DNA data to Family Tree DNA, click here.

Family Tree DNA Data Transfers

Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) accepts DNA test data transfers from 23andMe, Ancestry DNA, and MyHeritage. FTDNA uses a “freemium” model for transferring DNA test data to its database and only accepts autosomal DNA test data uploads.

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.” For $19 USD, “after transferring, you can unlock all Family Finder features, which include the Chromosome Browser, myOrigins, and ancientOrigins for only $19.”  Click HERE to get started and click HERE to learn more about how to transfer your DNA test results to Family Tree DNA.

What Do You Get with a Family Tree DNA Transfer?

Simply set up an account at Family Tree DNA, upload your 23andMe, AncestryDNA or MyHeritage DNA data and then click either Chromosome Browser, My Origins or Ancient Origins and you’ll be asked if you want to “unlock” the Family Finder features. Here’s what you get:

The Family Finder – Chromosome Browser page allows you to compare your matching DNA segments (blocks) with your genetic matches.

With ancientOrigins, our latest enhancement to Family Finder, unlock your deepest origins going back to ancient times by comparing your DNA to DNA from archeological dig sites throughout the European continent MyOrigins is an interactive mapping feature that provides a geographic breakdown of your ancestral origins.
