On Thursday, Ancestry.com™ announced that the company will no longer sell Y-DNA and mtDNA tests. Even worse, the results from past Y-DNA and mtDNA tests will no longer be available after September 5, 2014. Ancestry.com apparently will erase all of its customers’ Y-DNA and mtDNA test results. Anyone who has Y-DNA data stored on Ancestry.com probably will want to transfer that data to a different matching service, preferably well before September 5.
Family Tree DNA sent an email message to all Group Administrators to remind them what Family Tree DNA offers. I would also suggest non-Administrators will also want to move their own data. Information and pricing may be found at https://www.familytreedna.com/landing/ydna-transfer.aspx.
