GEDmatch Back Up (Hit or Miss)

Updated 11 June 2014 – access to GEDmatch is hit or miss and they added an additional message:

The genealogy functions have been temporarily taken off-line while we track down a problem. We anticipate it will be restored shortly. DNA functions (one-to-many, etc) should not be affected.

Part of the time I can get in and do stuff and others times I can’t get in or have limited functionality. Will update once the problems are resolved.

Good news. GEDmatch.com is back up and running. They weren’t able to move to the new server at this time, but plan on making the move in the future. One of several DNA posts over the next few days. Glad to see GEDmatch is up and accepting uploads again. If you appreciate the site and can afford it, please consider making a donation to them. The site is ran by a couple of volunteers who rely solely on donations and their personal finances to keep the site going and making it available for free.

A new addition to GEDmatch is another admixture tool: EthioHelix. Here’s an example of the French version of it, using my FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) test results.

You can learn more about EthioHelix here.

For those not familiar with GEDmatch, it is a free site where you can upload your raw data from AncestryDNA, 23andMe, and/or FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) and compare them to others who uploaded their results to GEDmatch.

    Hi Paul,
    I just joined gedmatch and all is does it take me to a forum page, there is nowhere to upload data that I can see. Is the site still down or am I missing something? Thanks, Kathryn

      Finding intermittent access right now. At times, I get in fine and at others, it won’t let me in at all or I have limited access.

      They added an additional message since my original post.
