About us

Here are some important answers to the question "Why test with Family Tree DNA?" Other than the cost of the test, all the following services are provided FOR FREE. * You will be included in the largest Y-DNA and mtDNA databases in the world. * You have total control over whether you compare your results only within your project or against the entire database. * The names and email addresses of your genetic matches are provided so that you may contact them. * Personal phone and e-mail support by qualified personnel. Both the phones and email messages are answered by a human being and not by an automated response system. * Family Tree DNA is the only service which has a calculator, created by our population geneticist, that gives you the likelihood of sharing a common ancestor with your genetic match within a certain time frame. * Family Tree DNA allows you to join, leave, and be part of multiple Projects at the same time, without any additional testing or cost. * As additional people test, your result will be matched against them and in case of a match you will be notified by e-mail. * Family Tree DNA allows you continued access to your account, projects, and matches without additional testing, cost or subscription fees. * Family Tree DNA is the only company that stores your DNA for 25 years allowing you to order additional tests using the original sample. * Family Tree DNA is the only company to offer the SNP Assurance Program: if no ancestral haplogroup can be estimated with 100% certainty, FTDNA will SNP test your sample for free. * Family Tree DNA is the only DNA testing service that partners with National Geographic’s Genographic Project and allows you to add your results to that project for a nominal fee that goes to the Genographic Legacy Fund.
