FAQ


What is an autosomal DNA transfer?
If you have previously tested your autosomal DNA at 23andMe© or AncestryDNA™ or MyHeritage™, you can transfer your results to Family Tree DNA by uploading your raw data file or by providing an identification number given by an acceptable third-party company. After transferring, your autosomal data is entered into our database, but your DNA sample is not obtained by our company.
Please note that you can only transfer the following versions from 23andMe©, AncestryDNA™, and MyHeritage™:

23andMe© V3

23andMe© V4

AncestryDNA™ V1

AncestryDNA™ V2

MyHeritage™


Unfortunately, at this time, you cannot transfer 23andMe© V1 or 23andMe© V2 results from 23andMe©.
For more information, see our Sample Access and Transfer Policy.

What do I get if I transfer my autosomal DNA?
After transferring your results, 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 FamilyTree DNA's autosomal DNA test.

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

What is the difference between an autosomal transfer and the Family Finder test?
With the free autosomal DNA transfer, you transfer your autosomal DNA by uploading a raw data file to our website or by providing an identification number given by an acceptable third-party company. After transferring, you have free access to your autosomal matches and the Family Finder - Matrix. Access to all other Family Finder features may come at an additional cost.

When you purchase a Family Finder test, we obtain sample DNA from you; once your sample has been analyzed by Family Tree DNA, you will have full access to your autosomal matches and all Family Finder features.

Once I transfer my autosomal DNA file, will Family Tree DNA be able to give me Y-DNA and/or mtDNA results from the data?
No. An autosomal DNA transferred data file only contains information on your autosomal DNA.

I have more questions about transferring my autosomal DNA data, where can I get more information?
For more information on transferring your autosomal DNA data, see our Learning Center Autosomal DNA Transfer topic, or contact one of our Customer Service Representatives.
