FamilyTreeDNA now accepting transfers for 23andMe V4 and AncestryDNA V2 files!

+12 votes

Just got notice that FamilyTreeDNA is accepting transfers for 23andMe V4 and AncestryDNA V2 files.

For the old format, here are the rules:

  • 23andMe V3 and AncestryDNA V1 now receive a full list of matches and the ability to use the Matrix feature FOR FREE. For only $19, the customer can unlock the Chromosome Browser, myOrigins, and ancientOrigins.

And for the new format, here are the rules:

  • 23andMe V4 and AncestryDNA V2 receive all but the most speculative matches (6th to remote cousins), also for free. After transferring, if the customer wants to receive speculative matches, they will have to submit a sample and have a Family Finder run at the reduced price of $59.

Thank you for posting this.  I uploaded a few days ago and am very pleased with the results so far.   I have a huge batch of new matches I didn't have at Ancestry, 23andMe or Gedmatch.

I have yet to unlock with the now reduced price of $19, but that will be my next step.  I want to see what those features will do for me.  And the price?  Can Not be beat!!
