FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) MyOrigins Version 3 Coming Soon – September 22, 2020

I saw this announcement posted by Roberta Estes on her DNA-Explained blog When I checked today, it shows my results should be updated in 3 – 4 weeks. As a warning, below the continental level, don’t rely too heavily on any company’s ethnicity results. It looks like they updated my results to version 3 already. For those who haven’t signed in lately, FTDNA is doing it in waves. The last to be updated will be those who haven’t signed into FTDNA, not counting GAP only sign-ins, in a year or longer.

Here are the results for comparison:Ignore Ethnic Results Below the Continental Level. See below since the Quote block didn’t work very well this time. Starting with #1 compared to #23 and #24.
