THIRD PARTY

Autosomal DNA Transfer Order Now


Click here to view our atDNA Transfer Landing page.

This option is available for men and women who have autosomal DNA results from a third party company that used the Illumina OmniExpress Plus Genotyping BeadChip, such as 23andMe© (known as the Relative Finder) and AncestryDNA™. You may use this option to upload your raw data to the Family Tree DNA Family Finder database to take advantage of features associated with the Family Finder product, such as relative matches and the Population Finder. This data transfer does not include any Y-DNA or mtDNA results from any company, nor does it involve the transfer of any physical DNA sample.

The 23andMe© V2 test (sold prior to November 24, 2010) and the 23andMe© V4 test (sold beginning in late 2013) are NOT compatible with our Family Finder product and is NOT accepted in the Autosomal DNA Transfer.

The $69 fee will provide you with a Family Tree DNA personal page which will allow you to:

  • View matches related within about the last 5 generations and predicted relationship ranges.*
  • See percentages of your ancestral make-up from 62 world reference populations such as Native-American, Middle Eastern (including Jewish), African, West and East European.
  • Confirm close relationships regardless of gender.
  • Generate additional genealogical information..

Please note, uploaded files are batched once a week then run through the conversion program. Results take approximately 4 weeks based on volume. You will be notified by e-mail when your results are available.

*You will be matched with others who have also taken the Family Finder test. However, if you come from an under-represented population, it is possible that you will not find matches right away. Your matches largely depend on how your DNA compares to our database. As our database is constantly growing, we will send you e-mail notifications about any new matches calculated to be third cousins or closer.

IMPORTANT: Your results from Family Tree DNA compared to another company's results will be similar, however, they WILL NOT be exact. Due to Family Tree DNA's proprietary algorithm your matches, centiMorgan totals, and centimorgan length will vary.

ATTENTION: If you are already a Family Tree DNA customer, please log into your personal account to transfer your third party results and avoid creating a duplicate record. If you already have the Family Finder test, you are not eligible for this transfer product.
