What to do about old FTDNA keys in GenomeMate?

+5 votes
So, now that GEDMatch has randomized the previous F<FTDNA ID> to T<random number> the DNA data in GenomeMate is still the same, but the GEDMatch Identifiers are hosed.


Can or should anything be done like a - gulp - reload?

Gulp, yes. Oh I know it is a HUGE pain in the behind to do on Genomemate but you won't have the correlation unless you create a secondary Spreadsheet to show the old and then the new ID's, as a quick reference.

Just better in the long run to do it again - then fewer chances to have a mix-up.

This is something I am looking at today - How is everyone else handling this - Just downloading all your matches and updating all your spread sheets/uploading to your programs?
