FamilyTree DNA Accepting 23andMe v5 Chip and Latest AncestryDNA Raw Data Transfers

To paraphrase a group admin on Facebook: Use your best judgment to decide if you want to take advantage of the offer given the recent news about FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) allowing law enforcement to utilize FTDNA‘s database.

FTDNA is now allowing uploads of 23andMe v5 chips and AncestryDNA uploads should now be working. If you have problems or issues uploading these kits, please contact FTDNA. Note: the transfer is a free limited transfer. For full access, you need to pay $19 for full access to Chromosome Browser, myOrigins, or ancientOrigins.

As background, 23andMe’s v5 chip is significantly different from earlier chipsets, v3 – v4, used by 23andMe. That meant FTDNA had to develop a way to adapt the v5 chip to work.

Autosomal Transfers

If you or a family member have previously tested your autosomal DNA at 23andMe©, AncestryDNA™, or MyHeritage™, you can transfer your results to FamilyTreeDNA by uploading your raw data file. After transferring your file, your autosomal data is uploaded to our database, one of the world’s largest genetic genealogy databases.

When you transfer, for free, you will receive a list of your autosomal matches from our database and have access to our Family Finder – Matrix. The Matrix feature allows you to select and compare the autosomal DNA relationship between up to ten of your matches at one time.

Note: Family Finder is the name of our autosomal DNA test.

After transferring, you can unlock all Family Finder features, which include the Chromosome Browser, myOrigins, and ancientOrigins for only $19.

Please note that you can only transfer the following file versions from 23andMe© and AncestryDNA™ :

  • 23andMe© V3
  • 23andMe© V4
  • 23andMe© V5
  • AncestryDNA™ V1
  • AncestryDNA™ V2
  • Ancestry DNA™ V2.2
  • MyHeritage

Unfortunately, at this time, you cannot transfer 23andMe© V1 or 23andMe© V2 results.
