In doing my research to update my list of DNA companies, tools, blogs, and miscellaneous stuff, I came across a company I wasn’t familiar with: Silverberry Genomix. It offers free raw data uploads from 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) – you will need to unzip the zipped file you can download from the companies, but keep the zipped file since many companies want you to upload the zipped file. In this case, it needs to be a .txt file and when you unzip it, most of the time it unzips as a .csv file. Easy fix is to choose Open With Notepad, then save it with the same name, but using .txt instead of .csv. There are some companies that want the .csv or .txt file so keep both. You will get approximately 9 free reports; I listed the ones I received free and they were the same for 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and FTDNA. I also added the results to DNA Passport Results as a comparison to what DNA Passport and 23andMe gave me.
Silverberry Genomix overall results (139 reports available if I wanted to pay for all of them, but 9 reports were free. It does show overall percentage of Risky Traits and Positive Traits as an incentive to order other reports.
- Elevated: 6 (4%)
- Slightly Elevated: 6 (4%)
- Normal: 88 (63%)
- Advantaged: 2 (1%)
- Slightly Advantaged: 2 (1%)
- Typical: 35 (25%)

You can add multiple people to one account; you need to show their Gender at birth, date and location (city, state is what I put in for the two other kits I uploaded) you received their consent to upload, your relationship to the other person (ranges from family to Client and several other possibilities). It took a few minutes to upload since you are uploading the .txt file which tends to be much larger than the zipped file. It took another few minutes for their system to analyze my raw data, but overall I think it took less than 10 minutes for the largest file (23andMe v3 chip) and the smallest file was around 5 minutes.
