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.
