GEDmatch FTDNA Upload Update 24 March 2016

GEDmatch ( should be accepting new FTDNA (FamilyTreeDNA) uploads soon. Also, they are renumbering and renaming existing FTDNA kit numbers. The below is posted on GEDmatch.

Note that existing ‘F’ (FTDNA) kit numbers on GEDmatch will be changed to ‘T’ followed by a random kit number. This will probably happen in the next few days. If you need to make copies of your results with the old kit numbers, please do so now.
We are ready to receive FTDNA raw DNA files as soon as the new file format becomes available for download from the FTDNA site.


If you plan on making copies, do it now. Also, if you use another site that downloads from GEDmatch (several come to mind), you will most likely need to re-download after the change-over. Check whatever site you are using and see how they advise to handle the change.
