  • Free Autosomal transfer offer?

    What are the details of the free autosomal transfer offer?
    I have a surname project and would like to add my siblings' results from 23andMe (yes, I have control of their results).
    Do I need to create separate accounts for each of them, then transfer?

    Thanks.

    If they don't already have an account you make one and do the transfer at the same time at https://www.familytreedna.com/AutosomalTransfer?

    You can only use V3 from 23andme.

        Will their matches see them? That is, I know that someone transferring "for free" will only see their top few matches, initial and last name, and no means of contacting. If such a person matches me, will I see them and have their contact information?

          No, you will not be able to see or contact them until/unless they purchase/unlock the full transfer.

            Is the free transfer a temporary promo or permanent? I'm a little annoyed now that I paid $69 for the transfer!

              Two problems with the new autosomal transfer.

              The e-mail saying results are ready has a typo in the link http://www.familiytreedna.com/login.aspx.

              The chromosome browser does not load any matches. In fact, the chromosome browser is not loading matches for existing accounts.

                I transferred Ancestry Data

                I transferred my father's Y-dna33 for $19. It's been a few weeks, and there has been no response or indication that anyone has seen it. I joined the R1b project, Huguenot and French Heritage projects, but no one has made any comment.

                  I just transferred my Mom's 23andme V3 data. Her initial results should be ready in an hour. I'm going to pay to unlock it. My other kits are on V4 so I can't send them.

                    Ann the link in my email surprisingly placed me right in my Mom's new account when I clicked on it. No login was needed.

                      You don't need to feel annoyed. Leave that to us that paid nearly $300 for a Family Finder test a couple of years ago

                        Maybe they fixed the typo (the extra i in familiy).

                        I can see the chromosome browser using Chrome but not Firefox.

                          I have upgraded to Firefox 31.2 ESR today and no problem for me.

                          Genealogical research offers its fair share of excitement, so I moved to Firefox ESR and never looked back.

                            If this promo isn't permanent than you at least need to prolong it to a week after the very sudden technical problem at Ancestry for downloading autosomal data...

                              Hmm, I'm on Firefox 33.0, but Windows XP. I checked my laptop, which is Windows 7, and the Chromosome Browser is OK there. Also the Unlock for Free button is not working on my XP and I see no way to pay the $39. On Windows 7 I can see a banner across the top that says 75% complete and a hyperlink to Unlock All Matches.
