    Have you used the mapmy23 tool to convert ancestry raw data to format ftdna will accept?

    At age 77 I try the simple route or ask someone

    Not all ancestry files fail to upload, it is just a subset that for some reason or other have less SNP within file, making it slightly smaller then the normal ancestry Raw Data file....these are the ones that FTDNA was rejecting

    Would be interested to hear if this "does/does not" work for anyone

    My answer to the problem people have transferring Ancestry raw data to FTDNA ….

    When you download raw data from Ancestry it adds the date of transfer to the zip file Title.. ie: dna-data-2018-03-03 You Need to REMOVE the Date -2018-03-03 then transfer zipped file dna-data to FTDNA

    Kiss..(Keep it simple stupid)
    John we actually tried that when the original problems started happening and it didn't seem to matter. It would be wonderful if it were this simple though, thats for sure!

    Only 13 matches

    I Recenty unlocked an Ancestry transfer that has only 13 matches shown. There are thousands on GedMatch with 'same' upload. One big difference is that the Ancestry kit had to be 'processed' to work here using http://www.mapmy23.com/tools/ancestry_ftdna_fix.php Thank the author!!

    This is NOT a knock at FTDNA or the conversion, for sure, but only a warning to others that the 'conversion' may be imperfect. Of the 13 matches identified by FTDNA, a few are also the strongest matches on GedMatch.

    If I had a choice, I'd take more matches ID'd but with a suitable disclaimer. Sure wouldn't want a lot of false matches, though...

    IMHO, Ancestry and 23andMe are driving a wedge in the utility of autosomal DNA for pecuniary interests.

    I'm always glad there are smarter people than me!

    To Chrisbonisa: Thanks for the Ancestry fix! I got my results this morning and couldn't make any good connections on Ancestry. When I uploaded to FTDNA I got some verification on my hunches from some of my matches. Doesn't happen without your fix

    Best Regards,
    Jeff

    Hi Ann, sorry I didn't see your message, I did reply, I will try to help as best I can. It does seem that randomly FTDNA will not accept a small percentage of these converted kits. Unfortunately I've not found the problem yet, they seem to be in exactly the same format as the others and have the same number of snps etc, but I will keep looking!

    I, like many others, tried unsuccessfully to upload my raw AncestryDNA results. Each time I received the same error that has already been posted. Three downloads to two different computers using four different browsers--No Joy. I read this thread and tried the link below, and it worked. I had to wait to post this comment until my account was activated for the Forums.

    Thanks to whoever created this workaround.
