DNA Testing Transfer to Family Tree

Note... if you have done DNA testing with another company here is your opportunity to transfer your results to Family Tree DNA.  Our project used Family Tree DNA as it has by far the largest data base and is very user friendly. 

Dear Group Administrators,
 
On Thursday, Ancestry.com™ announced that they will no longer sell Y-DNA and mtDNA tests.  Additionally, the results from past Y-DNA and mtDNA tests will no longer be available after September 5, 2014.
 
There are no guarantee on what the future holds for Ancestry.com's™ autosomal DNA offering so we strongly recommend that you tell people that tested with Ancestry.com™ to transfer their Y-DNA and Autosomal DNA to Family Tree DNA where our main focus is genetic genealogy. mtDNA is not transferable because of compatibility issues.
 
Family Tree DNA is committed to supporting these valuable genealogical tests today and in the future.  You should encourage anyone who has tested with Ancestry.com™ to transfer their record to Family Tree DNA as soon as possible.
