Autosomal DNA Transfers

If you or a family member have previously tested your autosomal DNA at AncestryDNA™ or MyHeritage™, you can transfer your results to FamilyTreeDNA by uploading your raw data file. After transferring your file, your autosomal data is uploaded to our database, one of the world's largest genetic genealogy databases.

When you transfer, 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 our autosomal DNA test. If you have already taken a Family Finder test, you cannot upload data from another company to your account.

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

Please note that you can only transfer the following files and file versions:

  • AncestryDNA™ array V1
  • AncestryDNA™ array V2
  • MyHeritage™ results received after March 1, 2019.

Unfortunately, at this time, you cannot transfer the following files:

  • AncestryDNA™ NGS
  • 23andMe©

Note: Until further notice, FamilyTreeDNA is not accepting 23andMe© autosomal transfers.
