Transferring your results* from the National Geographic Genographic Project to FamilyTreeDNA is free! Once you complete the transfer process, you will receive new information through your FamilyTreeDNA account. We will also transfer any remaining sample from the National Geographic Genographic Project storage to FamilyTreeDNA storage so you can continue your journey.

*We do not accept National Geographic tests provided via Helix.

If you transfer your Geno 2.0 Next Generation results, you will get:

  • Access to the myFamilyTree feature.
  • Your positive Y-DNA SNPs (if you are male) on the most up-to-date Ytree.
  • Your mtDNA haplogroup (if you have not previously tested mtDNA with FamilyTreeDNA).
  • Y-DNA and mtDNA data can be accessed with the free transfer.
  • If you would like to upgrade to a FamilyTreeDNA Family Finder test for $39, you will receive myOrigins results and matches.
  • Autosomal raw data can only be accessed after upgrading to the Family Finder test.

Note: You will only receive Y-DNA and mtDNA matches if you order FamilyTreeDNA testing as the Geno 2.0 Next Generation data is not compatible with the FamilyTreeDNA matching databases.

If you transfer your Geno 2.0 results, you will get:

  • Access to the myFamilyTree feature.
  • Your positive Y-DNA SNPs (if you are male) on the most up-to-date Ytree.
  • Your mtDNA haplogroup (if you have not previously tested mtDNA with FamilyTreeDNA).

Note: You will only receive Y-DNA and mtDNA matches if you order FamilyTreeDNA testing as the Geno 2.0 data is not compatible with the FamilyTreeDNA matching databases.

If you transfer your National Geographic Genographic Project first phase kit(s):

  • If you did the paternal line test, you will get the equivalent of the Y-DNA12 test at FamilyTreeDNA, including matches and haplogroup prediction.
  • If you did the maternal line test, you will get the equivalent of the HVR1 mtDNA test at FamilyTreeDNA, including matches and haplogroup prediction.
